    MRI options near Atlanta

    Hey folks. Just moved to Atlanta and am battling an ongoing nebulous lameness in my mare, and I am fed up enough to be considering pursuing MRI. We're on the north side suburbs of Atlanta. Is UGA the...
  2. Looking for a horse hotel around Memphis in June?

    Hopefully you guys can help me out. I am moving with the horse (and cats and all my worldly possessions) in June, and my halfway mark is around Memphis TN. I am looking for a place to stop for an...

    Yes, TBs need more grain. No, it's not a nightmare. What I am currently battling in friends with new OTTBs is that they feel the need to make them look like big fat WB hunters IMMEDIATELY NO WAITING!...

    I am glad I'm not the only one who does this. My mare LOVES having suncreen put on, however, so I keep a tube of whatever I am using (usually Banana Boat) in the grooming bag for both of us. I may...
  5. Favorite saddle pads for the back-sore horse?

    My young TB mare is having some issues with backsoreness. I'd like to see if anyone has an opinion on changing saddle pads that might help as well. I have one Back on Track pad that she seems to...

    I also don't remember what model I have, but I've had them for close to 10 years and they are still going strong. Broke in easily, and held up beautifully when I was riding in them almost every day...

    A mid-level Littman is a good choice for basic auscultation. A Littman Classic II runs around $75 - no need for something over $100!

    New vs used makes a huge difference - I got my used Sundowner GN for almost $1k below asking because I was there, I wanted it, and it needed some work. Solid and useable for my horse, but broken...

    For a big guy like that, I would absolutely be looking at getting an extra tall trailer (7'6" interior height). I have an older 2H straight load Sundowner that is an extra tall, which I bought when I...

    EPM does whatever it wants. Horses can have subtle lameness all the way to falling down/recumbency. We most commonly see shifting-leg lameness that doesn't respond to nerve blocks or a bute trial....

    These are neither lice nor fleas - some kind of insect. Treating the horse won't kill them. They are probably some kind of gnat - fly spray and fly sheets may help, but you can't fight insects very...

    When I got on my horse today, the barn owner was working one of the boarder horses who is, frankly, a moron. They were working on ground driving and desensitization with a tarp, and that stupid...

    I have no good answer but my mare does this too - I have butt chains instead of butt bars because we had to build a divider and had no bars on it. I am looking into getting the chains replaced with...

    Definitely a great diagnostic option for those vague, hard to ID "not quite right" horses! Protocols vary depending on the practice - I know some places that will send the horse home the same day,...

    Hey all, I just found out that I'll be moving to Atlanta this summer (woohoo!), and will be working on the north side of the city (Sandy Springs area). My young TB mare will be looking for a new...

    Bone scan is not necessary for diagnosis of cervical facet arthritis - radiographs are generally sufficient. Even then, as I said previously, someone with a lot of experience ultrasounding and...

    If your horse has cervical vertebral compressive myelopathy (old horse Wobbler's), a basket surgery is not an option - that is for young horses with Wobblers, which has a different etiology. Based...

    My light bay gelding had everything black/royal blue/silver (or white when silver wasn't an option). New dark bay mare is black/purple/white. I think it looks terribly snazzy. Not that I'm biased at...

    Thanks for the replies y'all. Should have mentioned that the mare-beast is medically fine and 100% sound. In addition to a pre-purchase, she has been radiographed from top to bottom, had stifle...

    Hoping for some specific ideas or suggestions for my little mare. I have a rising 6yo OTTB mare who I have had for about a year - she was off the track for a year when I bought her but had not had...

    Thanks y'all. It is making my uptight hunter princess side insane, but I guess I'll accept that it's just life until spring gets here for real. I was hoping there was some magic product I hadn't...

    My little mare got a trace clip for the winter, and while I love it for days like today when it's 70, I am losing my mind over the rubs we are dealing with. She has rubs where my leg sits behind the...
