    Oh, Susan, I can't begin to express how sorry I am that you and David have found yourselves at such a painful fork in the road. As you know already, your roads will merge again. May you find the...

    Great Uncle and Grandmother are brother and sister. That's a pretty standard relationship.
    OP, your uncles horses aren't even vaccinated? There are far too many variables to even begin to...

    I love a wet (and gently wrung out) Animalintex over a wound like this. You can trim it down to fit over the front of the pastern, under your standing wrap, and one sheet will last through many...

    A spinal tap for EPM is performed WELL south of the brain stem. The CSF is harvested from the lumbosacral spine. Why was your horse being tapped way up near his head? That was certainly NOT a...

    He looks more filled out than a lot of 2 year old TBs here in the States. He is "pre-programmed" to grow only so much. As long as he's not malnourished, and clearly he's not, his body is putting...

    Gabapentin is pretty sedating. I know from personal experience. So, whether pain is at the root of the bad behavior or not, gabapentin will likely be perceived to improve his behavior, at least...

    Anybody watch Cesar 911 on Friday?

    Ignoring the fact that I would have strangled that dog with my bare hands the FIRST time it bit my kid, I thought it strange that Cesar and the owners kept insisting on having the dog/dogs IN the...

    SheckyG, does your horse share a fence line with others? When I've had these types of repeatedly swollen legs, it's usually hind legs and the problem is usually "disquiet" along a fence line (or...

    I didn't make it out to be simple. I said that a vet who wanted to could've euth'd this llama. And I stand by that.

    Is the disobedience you're seeing a challenge aimed at whoever is handling/riding him? Or is it more of an excess energy thing? Or are you not sure? If he's challenging authority in a blatant way,...

    Yep, I've hit plenty of llama veins. They're huge. And long. And this argument is just silly. Any vet could have euthanized this llama if they'd wanted to. I'm not passing judgement on the OP's...

    Are you serious? It is not "tricky" to overdose an animal with pentobarbital. If the heart doesn't stop, give more. Rinse and repeat. Sheesh!

    Oooooh, I don't like this woman. From the way that poor mare is standing in the photo that Sparrowette posted, you can tell that her feet are a disaster. This mare needs help ASAP. :-(

    Actually, that is what you got. You say you want to retire him in a big field. Then you say you're going to inject his hocks. You say he's a wobbler. Then you say you haven't x-rayed. You say...

    I have a hard time believing any vet worth their salt would use The Crystal Ball Method to diagnose a wobbler. There are just too many potential causes for neurological signs and so many of them...

    I'm so sorry for your loss and I truly hope you find some answers. :cry:

    He looks amazing! And, really, he's pretty adorable, even with the tongue. :yes:

    I like OCD Pellets and other similar products. Balance is important, so I certainly wouldn't throw supps at younger mares without knowing there is a deficiency. The developing foal takes priority...

    I use to have a trainer who gave bute by crushing it up and then making a THICK, sticky paste by adding molasses. She would mix it all up in a bowl and then take a looooong handled wooden spoon and...

    Older mares are more likely to produce foals with limb deformities for a number of reasons. They may be less active themselves than younger mares and the mare's movement (or lack thereof)...

    The type of contracture you describe isn't known to correlate to the height of the parents. What can have some influence in that way is the body condition, age and activity level o the mare....
