    Hey guys!
    So terribly sorry I never replied to this - it just disappeared out of my mind (can I say EXAMS?)!!

    Depends! Does your horse get rubbed by the boots if without the wraps? That's really the whole clinch. I've become "good friends" with all the alternatives out there as I've been round the block with...

    A "very simple question" about right or left

    So I have an ex-racehorse who has an old tendon injury in his right front fetlock. It's not the classic bowed tendon injury, in fact I'll link in a couple of images here....

    I haven't cleaned his sheath in a while, no. Which is why that's the first step:)
    I'd like to stress the point that he FIRST stopped moving and THEN, quite a while later, his sheath swelled up. I'm...

    In a bit of a hurry so I don't have time to read all the posts, but I just wanted to weigh in quickly.
    I have a friend whose horse was an absolute menace to shoe. Literally would throw himself on...

    Thanks so much guys! I'm really hoping it's that he doesn't feel safe moving around on the ice (my stable owner says it's pretty icy there now). In that case either keep him in boots while it's...

    We actually use rock salt that other people use to grit their driveways... Get it in 5kg bags, and it's way cheaper than table salt. I'm sure someone might come by and say that's unsafe, but we've...

    OK just had another look round and the Internet refers to it as "subluxations of the spine". So with that out of the way... I'd love some brainstorming!

    Horse has stopped moving around in his pasture

    As some of you may know, I own a horse "in absentium", I study abroad and while I'm away my stable owner takes care of him like her own. Yesterday I got a message saying he'd developed a large...

    I'm going to get SO much abuse for saying this, but to me there is a point when a horse's body has deteriorated enough that it's no longer worth it. What's her quality of life really like, what with...

    Since it appears I'm becoming the big "for" person within boots here, I'd like to point out one little fact: I actually use boots very little. My big use for them is in winter, when we get two-three...

    I understand how it can seem that way, but the boots do allow the hoof to expand and contract with every hit against the road, which steel shoes don't allow, and there is the additional shock...

    Very interesting! I've never ever driven in blinkers, and I wouldn't consider starting, either! Personally as a style thing I find it looks hideous, but in things that actually atter, I don't find it...

    I'm afraid I don't agree - I don't see any significant gait changes whatsoever with my fairly heavy Cavallo Simples. Additionally, there are a whole lot of very light boots (see easy glue-on for...

    Personally, I would never advocate stall rest for any hoof-related illness. Very generally speaking, of course. Horses are meant to have a lot of movement during the course of the day, and if they...

    I think this was a great article. It doesn't stand as a fanatical poster for either side, but it DOES highlight the fact that some high-performance horses actually can make it barefoot. BIG smiley...

    I honestly don't care about the colour of my horse's tail, but being a warmblood horse his tail is pretty thin. Since this is a tail-related thread I thought I'd throw this in here.

    I'm fairly new to this forum and haven't really figured out how it works yet, so I don't know how much this issue has or hasn't been hashed over. But I'd love to have a discussion.
