130 x 170 is plenty big enough!!!
I know places that have waaaaaay smaller areas to ride and do fine. A typical indoor is 60 x 120, they are fine with several riders.
Location sounds great!
geeeeezzz, I have to post.
If they put every horse down for a grade 1 lamesss there would be very few horses around.
The poor thing just came off the track and you said yourself he has crappy feet...
Sounds like your horse found a fun game. Electric tape would probably rain on his parade - run a strand or two around the inside of your fence, end of game.
If he were mine, I would have the vet xray his feet and see exactly what you are dealing with. Have your vet refer you to the very best corrective farrier you can get. Go from there.
I know I always feel better after a phone call. It doesn't hurt to make a call!
To me, it sounds like your horse is gassy.
What is soaked T&A?
Call...see what your vet says.
Good luck with your...
call the manufacturer and give them the numbers. Ask me how I know!
Crocks - its cleaning up after my own horses, not a boarding barn.
Mine acts exactly like that when he needs to be adjusted by the chiropractor!
When was the last time your horse was checked over?
Your mare shouldn't be noticeably sore after schooling! You may be working her too hard.
She needs to be in shape to jump. She shouldn't need days off to recover from jumping.
How often do you...
I doubt you will get much interest for $1.00 a stall. Sooo, you will pay $4.00/day for cleaning up after 4 horses? I wouldn't do it, it wouldn't be worth making the time/effort, its not even close...
Some kind of tick fever??
An infection somewhere?
Good luck ~ hope to hear good news.
My gelding had one on his neck. It looked like a wart. I had the vet out to check it out and it was a sarcoid. I used Xterra but told it would probably leave a bald patch or if the hair grew back,...
Did you have a chiro look at him? He may have been compensating for a long time or just be out of alignment and need an adjustment. It can do wonders!!
Yes, dirt/debris under a pad can cause severe bruising. Did your farrier pack anything between his pad and his hoof when he put the pad on?
Did your vet have a thought on how this happened?
I never heard of "jamming up the coffin joint".
My first thoughts were a stone bruise from the show.
Did you have your farrier put hoof testers on him?
Navicular didn't cross my mind.
THIS ^^^^^^^^ ASAP
My horse takes it 2x day and no side effects. He's sensitive to pretty much everything, too! I guess you could take him off it for a few days and see if he acts any different.
try the "hug" they fit the hard to fit horses and will leave no rubs!
You need a good vet. I would get his back xrayed before I messed with his feet, chiros or anything else. Kissing spine is my first thought. Get it checked out.
Sounds like gas colic.
Sorry about the thrush!
I have a horse who wears pads year round ~ but no leather in the winter ~ it holds the wet, hense the thrush.
He wears full plastic type pads (not winter bubble ones) ~ so...
You could also try a different brand of blanket. One of my horses had incredible static electricity from his baker blanket he wore at night. He also got staticky from a fleece cooler. I now have...
Just wondering, why would you avoid glucosamine?
I have never heard that finer hay causes impaction. My horses prefer fine/tender hay over the tougher stemmy hay. As long as your horses teeth are in good shape, I don't see a real problem with...
Hi ~ sounds like a "form" of cribbing. I would try some kind of collar on her. Maybe a soft neck sweat. Putting a collar on her may prevent her from arching her neck in that certain position to do...
