    What a timely thread! Thanks SAcres, I'll be checking this one for updates.

    I'm also thinking of dragging my 22yo TB out of retirement. I trashed my knee and had surgery back in November, and...
  2. Senior Equines...how old is your competitor?

    Just a fun and curious thread. I'd love to hear from anyone who has an aged horse as their dressage partner.

    (I consider aged to be 20 or over, but anything in the late teens on up, feel free to...

    OP, so sorry for your losses. :'(

    My oldest horse had a very bad reaction one year (we can only guess it was the rabies vaccine, hard to tell because all were given in neck that year). Since...
  4. With a quick learner and a reasonably good pro,...

    With a quick learner and a reasonably good pro, 15-20 rides sounds reasonable to me. If he's turned out 24/7 his fitness level won't be as low as you may think. You could also help the progress...

    Can't answer for NorCal but I'd want to know if there was any tearing or abnormal scarring to the ligament, which the US would show. Xray obviously would show bone issues (spurs, arthritic changes,...

    I'd probably go ahead and have it ultrasounded (if you have a good vet with portable ultrasound, capable of relaibly reading the results...sad that I have to make that disclaimer). But, I'm probably...
  7. Annual Smith - Worthington sale...worth the trip?

    It's a 5-6 hour trek for me. How much of a discount have you found there in the past? I did talk to the wonderfully helpful people at the store and they let me know that there are very deep...

    An iron panel is all that was run so far, JB. I've been supplementing uckele poly copper because copper and zinc are iron antagonists. (Well, actually I supplement poly copper and poly zinc for my...

    rcloisonne, I have to agree that the stuides and Dr. Kellon's website made me feel like she was setting me up to sell me snake oil. My interest in the iron test was mostly because my last mare's...

    I do plan to re-run the ferritin test after making some efforts to reduce the ferritin to see if they worked. In light of the DSLD diagnosis and the mare's history, it seems to me that the...

    Oh how I wish she had just gotten into too much Guinness.

    sdlbredfan, did you run bloodwork to check liver enzymes after your horse came back with elevated serum ferritin?

    I really feel the...

    Thanks for the link to her website. I sent her an email requesting her fees and I'd like to do a consultation.

    This is such a frustrating disease. :'(
  13. Bloodwork results - high serum ferritin (DSLD horse). Next steps?

    Just a quick re-cap for those who missed the prior post:

    I have a mare in foal (due June) who was recently diagnosed with DSLD. Diagnosis and symptoms appeared after breeding unfortunately, and...
  14. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. My dansko's...

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. My dansko's are the professional. I can't imagine there being a less stable version! :eek:

    The negative heel earth shoes look interesting. I may see if I...
  15. Thanks for the tips guys. Why do I think I...

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    Why do I think I need arch support? Well, maybe I don't but my hip/knee/back all tell me they are happier with a higher arched shoe.

    Yes, I do feel ripped off by the...
  16. Need shoe help. Dansko's are going to kill me but I need arch support!

    I went to the walking company and had the whole workup done. I bought 2 pairs of Danskos ($$$$$ eeek!). The arch support is wonderful. They feel great on my feet. But I keep twisting my ankles! ...
  17. Of course I have. Were it not for the fact that...

    Of course I have. Were it not for the fact that she is due to foal this spring I'd have probably already set a date. Just trying to stabilize the situation to give the foal a chance.
    ...

    Sorry you are going through this PNW.

    I also had a vet seriously mis-read an Xray. The vet told me my horse had a fractured femur. He was non-weightbearing lame, and she did take about 8...

    Thanks. I have visited the page but didn't realize that there was a forum there. The magazine would also be nice for my mom to have. Thank you.

    shea'smom I'm so sorry. I can't do anything but tell you I know how you feel.

    I worry because of how difficult it has been for my mare to hold her hinds up for trimming, and she has several...

    The farrier was out yesterday and she had a very difficult time getting her hinds trimmed. We actually had to move into the stall and let her lean against the wall. :'( She had a full tube of...

    Any Scleroderma folks here?

    My mom was diagnosed a few years ago. We live in a fairly rural area and I don't think her docs are very well versed in this disease. I'm told it's pretty uncommon.

    I've been trying to find a...

    Chief2, thanks for sharing your story. And thanks again Watermark for all you've shared as well. Chief, I find it interesting your horse was diagnosed after an injury. Did it just show poor healing...

    Thanks Watermark Farm.

    I made the decision to put her out today. I weighed everything out, and I couldn't come up with a good reason to continue stall rest. If she didn't have DSLD and there was...
  25. Thanks. I'm willing to try just about anything,...

    Thanks. I'm willing to try just about anything, as long as I can determine that it's not likely to do any harm and there's a somewhat scientific basis to believe it might help.

    Why do these...
