Bloodwork was normal.
As he is prone to ulcers, the...

I saw a big ol' fat Western Diamondback this morning, up close and personal. Fortunately for the dryness of my underwear, the snake was safely locked in a sturdy cage :D
I was with a friend at a...
Since someone dug this up, I figured I'd chime in with an update.
Mr. Blondie was eventually diagnosed via MRI with "true navicular disease" in both front feet. Worse on the right. With corrective...
Heh heh :D

15-year-old Mr. Blondie just went through the MRI process. My vet uses MREquine - the machine comes by once a month in a big-@ss semi.
You can see the photos of the saga here:...
Please let me stress that it's not that I don't think I can't learn anything useful about horse care from someone else - even from unsolicited advice. (And actually, now that I...
Just curious, because Mr. Blondie was just diagnosed with "true navicular disease" via MRI, and a FB friend-of-a-friend has been peppering me with barefoot trim info despite my having told her...
I was hoping someone had stick-arted Colbert's Competitive Horse Prancing.
Good call! Just confirmed by Mittleider Eventing on FB.

Anyone recognize the rider?

Super hot 109 degree jingles from Arizona
Jingling for you... but quietly so as not to disturb your horse :yes:
I hear ya! And I expect I might be in your boat. I'll bring the sunscreen and cold drinks.
I have some photos - anterior, lateral, and posterior shots of The Leg.
For about a week leading up to...
Yes, that has occurred to me :sigh:
What I'm doing right now isn't all that burdensome, but I don't know if it's making him feel any better.
He's currently half-way through 2 weeks of rest...
