    The fever, lameness and acute onset make cellulitis the likely culprit. Lymphagitis is a possible complication of cellulitis, but this is minimized by proper treatment of the cellulitis. Lymphagitis...

    I agree. My bug sensitive horse is wearing his sheet today in 100+ weather. He will sweat in his flank chest and neck. It's a natural cooling method. Free access to water and salt is of course...

    Since the farrier noted resistance to having his feet trimmed, then it's worth having a good lameness vet investigate. It's always easier to address issues from early on rather than wait and see.

    I saw it quite a bit this spring. One TD was a bothered by it when jackets were waived, but she said once she let one person do it, she had to allow it for everyone else. I think they are pretty ugly...

    I've never seen one with a pattern in the show ring (maybe I'm not looking), but basically stock ties can be very individual in material, shape, some added bling or contrast piping. It's about what...

    Sometimes small tears can cause bleeding between the tendon fibers that give the appearance on ultrasound of a much larger tear. I always like to have a 2nd ultrasound after 3 weeks if a "hole" was...

    The bone scan included the neck right? I ask because your description screams neck. It's also possible to have old bone changes that no longer light up on bone scan, that are impinging or irritating...

    One thing to think about, if you were a buyer looking to buy your horse, and after full disclosure of the injury would 9/10 people expect a 2/3rd drop in price? Is she at higher risk of further or...

    Certainly more risky, but that can also be how a person buys a nicer horse than their budget allows. This type of horse is also very rare to be on the markets, so if the new rider got along with it...

    I washed my pikeur short jacket before last weeks show (because I forgot to take it to the dry cleaners). I had a back up coat, so decided to try out the "washable" feature. Hang dried. It looked...

    Coffin joint effusion is a symptom of an issue, not the cause, so you'll need to find out the injury to know the proper rehab. Coffin joint effusion alone usually does not have a specific protocol....

    Colic is the term used to describe abdominal pain, and it does sound like that's what you have.

    The music is great. The mix of 'I'm sexy, no wait, I'm an athlete, nope-look at me, back to the arena, I'm so hot, look it's a jumper,' did not make sense to me. I think it has a lot of potential as...

    I've never seen this shoe, but I nominate Hylana to be the guinea pig, since she pulls a shoe every other week! Is anyone selling them locally?
