    Thanks all. Ads up on Tack Trader, Craigslist, and Facebook. Hopefully someone bites - they're hard to find used so I'm hoping that works in my favor. Luckily we're happy using the Western saddle...
  2. Where are people listing saddles for sale these days?

    Turns out my Fairfax doesn't have a forward enough block for me, so I need to sell it so I can find something else. I've always sold Western saddles through Craigslist and TackTrader.com and have...

    My mini mule doesn't care. My current gelding is okay with all the stuff in the distance in the 2 weeks leading up, but not a fan once it gets close and incessant. Two years ago, I waited too long to...

    1 month post diagnosis update for anyone else that finds themselves in this place.

    We've been doing NSAIDs daily since June 3. We haven't had any observed incidents since May 25.

    Blood is being...

    It's a saddle fit issue I my experience. Any number of issues can cause it.

    There's a reiner on the circuit around here named WinnrWinnrChicnDinnr. His barn name is Chicken. He's super cute. And a frequent winner.

    I had one named Lynx Dox Sox. His sire was Mr Holey Sox

    Knew others named Budthewizer, Check My Whiz, and Wright Enough

    QH names are fun.

    Thank you! Me too. I love the little bugger. Altho I certainly didn't expect to find myself here with a 7 year old horse. Oh well, Murphy is laughing somewhere...

    I've had a few PM's asking if there was any resolution so I thought I'd update this thread for posterity.

    On May 3, we injected C6/7 bilaterally. Himself thought that he felt great afterwards, but...

    My gelding has wind puffs on both hinds. They're minimal now that he's no longer a reiner but they are definitely bigger when it's hot. Partly from the weather, I think, and partly because he stands...

    Update for us.

    We've spent all of May dealing with continued nerve pinch/zinger issues and therefore riding has been focused on a longer lower neck and light contact. Essentially allowing him to...

    Lower neck, C5-6-7. At least based on my recent experiences and my hindsight view of the slight dysfunction that was building over time.


    It wasn't that expensive to get a series of neck x-rays....
  13. We're going through something similar, but not...

    We're going through something similar, but not yet as devastating. I don't have any new ideas for you, but wish you all the best.
  14. We were back at the vet clinic yesterday. On...

    We were back at the vet clinic yesterday. On ultrasound, the vet said the right side of C6/7 shows slight abnormalities consistent with what we saw on x-ray, though nothing conclusive like a large...

    If the horse is from the Impressive line it must be tested for papers, they don't require testing otherwise.

    I appreciate all of the concern about HYPP and the five panel test. My horse has...

    Apologies, the whole thing is stressing me out.

    These are the parts of your original post that felt judgy.

    If your Vet has no clue what those are and how to dx or rule out, get a better Vet....

    Well that is completely terrifying (and disgusting). And seems unlikely given how much I've felt up his poll and neck in the past 48 hours, but I will ask when we are back at the clinic.
  18. This feels a little unnecessarily judgy of me, my...

    This feels a little unnecessarily judgy of me, my vet, and my farrier.

    1. HYPP is specific to horses with Impressive in their lineage. Since my horse does not trace back to Impressive, no need to...

    Peggy - thanks, that's helpful.

    Just exchanged emails with my vet and we're going to inject C6/7 and take a closer look at the poll. Injecting also gives us a chance to look at C6/7 with...

    Simkie - Totally understandable that you missed that in my novel. We debated injecting C6-7 but opted to do a full round of Adequan instead.

    IPEsq - I think the vet hospital here has a CT in...
  21. Peggy - well, that's terrifying. And yes, it's...

    Peggy - well, that's terrifying. And yes, it's clearly in the neck/poll, but what and where is the question.

    Simkie - we did not inject the facets, so the only imagery we have so far is x-ray. And...

    Thanks IPEsq. I agree, while the neuro tests are "clear", there's clearly something jolting him in a certain position or movement.

    SuperOtto - No Impressive in his lineage so HYPP shouldn't be a...

    We did a full neuro exam 2 weeks ago the day after Event #2 and there were no concerns.
  24. We did x-ray the entire neck and I was told there...

    We did x-ray the entire neck and I was told there was nothing obvious beyond the C6-7. The obvious answer seems spinal impingement or some other type of nerve trapping, but that seems off to me.

  25. Who Wants to Play Medical Mystery Monday? Updates Post 34 & 38

    Diagnosis and update at Post #34.

    Patient in question is a 7 yo QH gelding with no exciting history of anything. Was a reiner in full training (limited turnout) until his 4th birthday. He's been...
