    What are the youngster's feet and hoof and pastern angles like? Sometimes excess tension on the flexor tendons "pulls" the knees back. In those cases, upright conformation, soft tissue contracture,...

    And the number of horses running through auctions and looking for homes would be decreased. There are more horses than there are responsible homes for horses, so let's not lose perspective here. ...
  6. If your vet hasn't compared films yet, how can...

    If your vet hasn't compared films yet, how can she say that your horse has "changes"? It is a strong pet peeve of mine to call what one perceives as an abnormality a "change". It's only a change if...

    Put her in what field? Where? What if she gets hurt? Sick? What NICE, cooperative horse will miss out on an opportunity at a great life because this possibly rank (definitely disagreeable),...

    Why, oh why, on earth do you think this horse should reproduce??? No breeding home. Period. These traits are often heritable. Believe me.

    You're not riding this horse, are you? I would certainly consider that unsafe at this point.

    I may be way off, but it doesn't look like a muscle spasm or twitching or "thumping" at all to me in the video. It looks like an ataxic/unsteady horse trying to stand still and upright. Has your...

    That looks like lateral digital extensor tendon protrusion from upright conformation. If I'm looking at the right thing, it's not a lump or a swelling. It's the extensor tendon pulled tight as a...

    It was a lovely day for it. Do you know how many foals were in attendance overall?
  15. Chestnut Lawn ISR/Oldenburg NA inspection on 9/14 - Anyone there? Results?

    Like the title says, does anyone know where I can find the results of the Chestnut Lawn inspection on 9/14/14?
    TIA!

    I have the regular egg butt bit with the full plate. I got it at my local Dover Saddlery. My horse LOVES it and I've never found a bit he was happy with until this one. I think this x-ray...
  17. Have you heard of the Winning Tongue Plate bit? ...

    Have you heard of the Winning Tongue Plate bit? I also have a horse with a shallow pallet. So much so that he can't stand the but cracker action of a snaffle, but he has a snaffle mouth. We settled...

    I'm not usually a big supporter of static splints because of the occasional unintended consequences of immobilization, but in your case, it sounds like maybe a Kimzey splint would help support your...

    You need a new vet. That's among the stupidest reasons not to x-ray that I've ever heard. You need x-rays. They can tell you a lot.
    I would NOT have your current vet x-ray. From what you've said...

    {{{HUGS}}} for all of Silly's people, but especially you. She definitely did her part while here, and did it well. I'm sure she'll be there at the bridge waiting for her special little girl.

    Yep, in the first picture here you can already see some effusion at the front of the fetlock joint. That, or a bulging of the bursa, due to the excessive angulation of the fetlocks and pasterns.

    Hhhhmmmm, I had the exact opposite opinion of his front end. ?? Very soft pasterns and hyperextended fetlock for a yearling. Even his heel angle in front is more sloping (undderrun-ish, for lack of...
