    Thanks, Laurie. That's why I asked here. I haven't seen it before, but I figured there would be experienced COTHers who had. I've seen plenty of abscesses, but I haven't ever seen a HOOF abscess that...

    The mare looks like she might be a neat, sweet horse. The photos are not 'crituque-able', other than a nice face. I'd sure go see her in person, if she is sound, friendly, and fun to be around, she'd...

    Because there was a GIANT BUMP on the top of his foot. After the abscess burst, the bump got way smaller.

    Not on his hoof, ABOVE his hoof. Forward of the coronary band, on the top of the bulb of...

    Good point... don't go the 'sissy fingers'...

    Good point...
    don't go the 'sissy fingers' route, don't be afraid to USE the reins, to ask for something, to use pressure and release when you need to do so.

    Maybe a better definition of what I...
  5. Help with Mystery Abscess: it burst, I'm bandaging, what do I slather on it?

    And this is a totally atypical deal- the abscess is/was NOT in the hoof capsule, it was on the topside of the heel.
    It did break out at the coronary band (horizontal line there), as well as making a...

    I think this is something that aktill and I can agree on 100%...no, NO steady contact with a bosal!!!!

    At my first clinic, someone rode by alongside Buck, and she asked him, referring to ME on my...

    I have one of these, but I pretty much just use it as a spare 'thick' 1" wool pad, without its shims.

    It is a very thick pad in the first place, to be combining with shims.

    But if what you...

    Namaste to you, too :)

    It is so important to recognize the authority within our own selves.

    The lack of this recognition and a dependence on 'that's what my guru/clinician says' as an 'always...

    Thanks, mvp.
    I would like to go and see.
    That is a really bad time for me, though, I will be super busy with work.

    Lovely!
    Harry Whitney expresses often that it takes no pressure to move a thought... "Between the reins, is a thought"

    OK, so I'll give you an allegory.
    You haven't seen your husband in a while, you've missed each other, and you/he spot each other at the airport.

    And mvp, I did the 'children's' EST training in San Fransisco on the late 70's...and hated it.

    I was overpowered, and told that I could 'turn loose' of having that done.

    Well, yes, you can......

    I look a bit different in my breeches, tall boots and chinks.

    The 'blue jeans breeches' and chinks sort of hide the whole breeches thing, but unless I'm only horseback for an hour or so, I'm not...
