    A stronger, fitter rider might have a better chance of being uninjured in some falls than one who is unfit and not strong.

    Exercise builds muscle. It's easier when we are young.

    Can we agree...

    What subk said is not inconsistent with what soloudinhere said at all. Eating more protein might to some extent FORESTALL age-related muscle loss, but it's not going to ADD muscle in any way, shape...

    Well the filly is now 2 weeks old and no longer sick at all, but her tendons have not gotten better except only very, very marginally. She's in trailer shoes and needs to have thick bandages on or...

    They have looked at her sesamoids, hocks, suspensories and all seem fine. The kinesiologist fitted her with some elastikon/theraband yesterday but it didnt help much. I think she's a tiny bit less...

    She walks on the backs of her ankles, and really has only been up regularly for a day or two. She is 8 days old. Thanks for your input!
  9. Thanks for the thoughts--she is doing REALLY well...

    Thanks for the thoughts--she is doing REALLY well medically, nursing again, back with mama, off IVs and tube feeds, etc. Vets are being SUPER pessimistic about her back ankles which are really lax,...

    She had all that stuff already. I have no aversion to vitamins, etc. so she got them right away. But thanks for the contact idea!
  11. Newborn filly was very sick, now very lax tendons not getting better

    Hi everyone, looking for collective COTH experiences here. My Irish mare had a nice big filly last week, 342 days, no problems with pregnancy, maiden mare. Delivery was a little slow and the...

    Hi everyone and thanks for the good wishes. I know it's been a long time--I have not dropped off the face of the earth! Very busy and spending less time on the internet.

    Anyway, Bonnie had her...

    Can she start trotting ground poles? Raised cavalletti?
  14. smay, that's the ideal scenario for a small,...

    smay, that's the ideal scenario for a small, partial clip. A fat horse WILL lose weight if he is partially clipped. Not enough to be COLD, but just to burn a few more calories. Works like a charm....
  15. Herbal products rarely contain what they claim to, and worse . . .

    A medical test answers a question. You have to ask the RIGHT QUESTION in order for a specific test to give you a CORRECT ANSWER. A flexion test asks the question "does it hurt this animal to have...

    I think you have to get a lot closer to an ideal fit right off the bat, because there's not a lot of adjusting you can do. But the flip side of that is that there isn't a lot of adjusting you NEED...

    The facility you have is going to dictate how easy or hard your life is going to be, and what compromises you will be forced (yes, forced!) to make. :) Think long and hard about what kind of time...

    Shivering is not the goal. Burning calories to
    keep warm is. My vet says he wishes more people would partially clip their fat horses like I do with my Shetland.

    Great news, but vertebrae are difficult to assess for fractures by X ray, especially in the T spine, because of the complicated anatomy. MRI is so much more accurate. So I'd write it off to the...

    Resurrecting the thread to see if you all are still willing to help on Saturday? Probably mid afternoon--should have official times later today. :)

    Of all the things listed the modality I would have the easiest time swallowing as safe, effective, and likely to help would be the cheapest: Pentosan. It's plenty easy to get at the moment. I've...

    Yeah, the term seems to mean nothing when you boil it down. Typical pseudoscientific jargon--sounds ominous, means nothing. :sigh:

    Monkeying with the endocrine system is a bad idea, just like...
