    Dr. Nunnery from New Bolton sees horses at Piedmont, if you're looking for another ophthalmology option. I've had good experiences with her, both in the field and at NBC.

    Beyond the restroom issue, I'm on the side of "Come board with me!" My feed and tack rooms are not accessible, but I can come up with about four alternate solutions in the time it takes to type this...

    I run a therapeutic riding center and most of our horses are here on free lease. When done right (and I like to think we do it right) it can be a big win-win for both parties. For starters, go see...

    I have fought this with an aged, Cushings/IR pony gelding. His turnout is in a dry-ish lot due to a history of laminitis, but he still starts up with the squirts the moment the grass dies for the...

    If there is any way to adjust the gate so it swings in, I find this very helpful in keeping horses on the correct side of the gate while working on manners so it no longer matters. It also helps...

    You may just be hitting the volume max for those horses with the grain. I'm currently feeding one of these, and he is a cribber to boot. It takes trial-and-error to find the highest calorie feed...

    Just throwing this out there, but my mare with significant kissing spines was so locked up and tight to protect herself that she was totally nonreactive to back palpation. She had a history of...

    I placed one for a therapeutic riding program, but it took more than two years to find the right spot. While he's barefoot and an easy keeper, he's big, occasionally silly for the farrier, and...

    When this happened to me, my pressure tank had a leak. Because this property has the dumbest plumbing system ever, my pressure tank is in the pit with the well head, in a pasture. I cannot access...

    One of my boarders had a bad colitis. This horse had a history of loose manure, particularly when traveling, and had been treated with pop rocks for suspected gastric ulcers. No other prior...

    My mare is currently being treated for PSD (front leg). My marching orders are for her to be QUIET, by whatever means necessary. Fortunately ace is enough to take the edge off. Walking (doing a...

    Not a fan of the Big Fella. I've had issues with waterproofing, and I can't get them to fit right in the neck/shoulder. It shouldn't be gaping on a huge Belgian with a massive neck!

    I'll admit that I'm the meanie who does this with one of mine. He needs the trace clip either way, as he runs so hot with a full winter coat that he sweats doing walk-only lessons at 40F. I do the...

    Another update: He's had a couple weeks off and the feed change is completed. His condition looks better and the skin funk has cleared. ACTH came back within normal limits for this time of year. ...

    I can't tell you how long it'll last, but I did shockwave on my KS horse's back. We did two treatments, four weeks apart. (Also mesotherapy and Osphos) Due to the extent of spine affected, she's...

    $140 for a half-set, trim hinds. No price difference for steel v. aluminum, no price difference for new shoes v. reset. Almost always hot-shod.

    Farrier is almost always here within 24 hours, at...

    Little update: CBC/chem basically normal. Slightly high fibrinogen, but he just dinged up his eye again. Inquired about checking ACTH for Cushing's and she's not keen to run it this time of year,...

    Calling armchair vets

    First, the standard disclaimer. My vet has seen this horse. She agrees that he looks terrible, and made some suggestions for where to start looking, but nothing jumped out as an obvious answer.

    I have taken two clients' horses to the local vet hospital for standing MRIs of the front feet. In both cases it immediately revealed the source of the problem and the team was able to determine a...

    Does he handle better (or at least no worse) with a handler on either side, post parade-style? I had a field boarder who had a nasty shoulder-drop-and-bolt move in-hand, and that was how we handled...

    He has had two fecals come back negative while in my care and was most recently dewormed with Equimax in May. My vet advised against Quest due to his size & weight.

    Last time I tried he blatantly...

    Feeding the Elderly Small Pony

    Google is failing me, so I'm hoping one of you can help. The short version: What is the maximum volume a 12hh pony should receive in one feeding?

    I have an aged small Welsh Pony in my care. He's...

    Honestly, pen and paper. Each horse has a file with boarding contract, owner's liability release, and all the "new horse" info. Previous years' health records are also in the file.

    Current...

    I have one on 2mg/day (recently diagnosed, hopefully we can scale back once it's under control) and one on 2.5mg/day. The 2.5mg pony gets laminitic on anything less. And yes, it's cheaper and far...

    I did a bone scan on my mare with nonspecific training issues but no observable lameness -- strongly suspected back & possibly also SI. In my case it confirmed kissing spines and SI inflammation, as...
