    TR3 vs Arena Rascal

    I know there have been tons of threads involving these 2, and I've even been in on some of them. But between THESE specific 2, which do you have, have used, like, dislike, and why?

    I have a real...

    She's really cute :)

    Definitely a TB, or a nearly full TB. Or TK.

    She needs a shorter loin more than an overall shorter back. You still need ample room to put a saddle.

    Even if her loin...

    It just sounds like there's a cheaper way to do what you're doing, by replacing the HPG with 2lb of a RB, and then just adding the few extras remaining.

    Pictures would be most useful :)

    3 full cycles is, say, 18 weeks/coming up on 5 months. That's plenty of time to allow improper trimming to allow long toes and underrun heels to compromise the...

    I'd use a RB *instead of* the HPG. And because of his age and size, I'd use 2lb. Then you could drop the Nutramino/Tri-Amino

    IMHO he needs more protein and lysine than the HPG is giving him. ...

    Supplements are not automatically drugs. If they were, they WOULD be regulated.

    Calcium can be purchased as a supplement. Is it a drug? Vitamin E? What's your specific definition of a drug?

    So if we assume he's actually getting enough forage (do you feed the 10lb of pellets that you do because the barn won't feed any more hay?) then I still think he may be low in nutrients. You aren't...

    What one feeds will depend on feeds available, and needs of the horse.

    The 101 is to feed the amount of forage it takes to keep the horse in as good weight as that forage can. Ideally we'd have...

    Does he slug around, not track up, all the "lazy" stuff when he's out on his own? Does he do these things on the lunge?

    "Trim" does not have to mean take gobs of foot off. It doesn't even mean take something off all parts of...

    There is some evidence that Wobblers, or "wobblers" may be more appropriate, can arise out of a fast-growing youngster, then resolve as things even out, sort of like contracted tendons.

    This is GREAT news! I would have been totally surprised if he'd come back positive for that. I do still wonder if this is/was some sort of mild wobblers that couldn't be detected.

    Just like it's not valid to say "10-12 weeks is too long for any horse", it's not valid to say "no horse needs trimming as often as every 3 weeks."
