    Great product in the right hands. The trim underneath the shoe is critical, however. Far too many farriers are not trained in the use of these shoes which can cause more harm.

    But how much contact have the owners had with this horse over the years? I'll assume very little. Most would agree he should have been gelded years ago as his brother was.

    I wasn't suggesting he be gelded now. Far too late for that. He is what he is. My curiosity is for why in the world he wasn't gelded years ago since he was so dangerous. It's not as if he was capable...

    Can someone tell me why this horse wasn't gelded years ago? He wasn't good for racing and apparently not great as TB racehorse sire either. One would think there were/are far better stallions...

    Agreed



    I think you missed the part in the OP that said she's had the horse for eight years? It's highly unlikely the horse has a rearing problem from previous ownership.

    Two thumbs up for this whole post and particularly the above. It's no wonder the mare is confused.

    Very few horses are capable of doing well when ask to learn multiple disciplines at the same time...

    TC 30 = 9.8% NSC
    TC Lite = 9.3% NSC but WSC & ESC are 1/2 that of TC 30 and may be more appropriate in this case.

    I'd be more concerned about the 15 hours on fresh pasture than a single flake of...

    Ask your vet for an IV shot of dormosedan. It usually triggers copious sweating in most horses. Keep in mind dormosedan is a powerful tranquilizer so your horse will be sedated for a couple of hours.

    I for one would never use vet wrap on a lower leg injury without wrapping the leg with cotton sheeting or some other type protection over the pad first. Doing so is asking for a bandage bow.

    Not to shabby considering he'd never run 2.5 miles before. Unlike CC's owners, who apparently think the horse can be flipped like a light switch between American dirt racing and the typical tracks...

    It's a good thing nobody told Somethingroyal. She was 18 when Secretariat was born.

    Also not mentioned is nutrition. Could it be the elite mares were fed better during pregnancy and lactation?

    I'm surprised the coffin bone wasn't surgically debrided. That's the usual treatment for septic pedal osteitis (coffin bone infection). Good outcome is high. Since surgey was not done to ensure all...

    What I find most alarming, OP, is that your vet would close a castration incision after performing the operation on the farm. That is a huge no-no! Doing so effectively seals in all manner of...

    OP, you are a newbie horse owner. Hot walkers are dangerous unless monitored by experienced people and even then serious accidents can happen.
