  1. Oh, that is sweet, and thank you for the thought!...

    Oh, that is sweet, and thank you for the thought! :)

    I can afford DNA testing--but I am under the impression that it doesn't really work. I'm not a scientist, but as i understand it, most horse...

    And the water-hate! I've never met an Arab that liked water.

    North Spokane Special, ha! I love it. I should start my own registry.

    Part of me hopes she *does* have a running walk in there...

    Probably wouldn't hurt to have a vet check just to establish baselines and make sure there aren't any lurking issues, mild arthritis, etc., but I would say that short walks are best to start out,...

    Thanks, everyone! She is fabulous and I love her so bad.

    So for in-hand showing, in my area, there are basically two different types of halter classes you can go into: "stock type" (QH, Paint,...

    Oh, and a sub-question:

    Would i get laughed off the premises if i took her to an inspection this year? We have RPSI locally, and maybe some AWS/AWR stuff abt 5 hours away.

    She is not breeding...
  6. Help me guess my rescue baby's breeding!

    I have a coming-2 rescue baby and I have NO idea what the breeding is. Let's play! Let me know if this link doesn't work:

    I agree 100 percent with kasjordan. Figure out if there is pain, and treat accordingly.

    I have a toothless 22 year old TB who looks the best she has ever looked this winter, but it takes...

    My 2 cents (and that is about all it is really worth!) but i see some potential here too. No, he's not a 10. But he is better than a 6 mover and would only get better with consistent correct...

    Long shot, but--i have an old Big Horn half-leather, half-synthetic cutting horse saddle that is a PERFECT fit for TB backs. It works with the dip and still clears the shark fin. It is worth whatever...

    Thanks for this thread! I'm having a similar difficult time trying to put/keep weight on my old near-toothless TB. Equine Senior is great but she gets HOTTTTTTT on it! :)

    Lots of great...

    I just bought a Big D Magnum turnout sheet for my slight TB mare who normally wears an 80. The 80 is a little big--i probably could have gotten away with a 78. That's all i know!

    You didn't say what age your ponies are, but I can tell you it has never worked out (for me, anyway) to have a middle-age/mature gelding in with a very young (weanling to 4ish) mare. My geldings have...

    Thank you so much, rcloisonne.

    And you too, Gallop--you are absolutely right. Looking back over some of the pictures I took of him, from him falling down while trying to doze, to him resting his...

    I took my poor guy on the long trailer ride yesterday. The second ultrasound confirmed what the first had shown. If anything, it showed even more damage inside. His suspensory was full of holes,...

    I totally agree with this. I had a 17.1 hand TB who jumped for DECADES who, even in old age and stiffness, never had a problem getting up and down. Makes you wonder what else is and has been going on...

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

    Appointment with Vet #2 (actually, vet #3, i guess) tomorrow afternoon for a second ultrasound. If they agree with the diagnosis, I'll be heading home with an...
  17. Update

    If I can figure out how to tag threads, I’ll tag this one with “spider bite” and “free horses aren’t free.”

    The good news first: The vet carefully examined and x-rayed the RF hoof and didn’t see...

    And is there any way to predict it (like a horizontal "string test")?

    I have no idea where my yearling will finish for either length or height but it might be fun to guess!

    !!!!!!!!!! I just googled "canker." I had always thought it was the same thing as seedy toe. OH MAH LORD. I certainly hope it isn't that. I have a pretty strong stomach for horse wound photos and...

    Thanks, alto! I love it here. :)

    His manners *are* coming around a little bit. I think he has figured out that i mean business!

    I'll be sure to post the vet's findings next week!

    Good call! And good call on the Previcoxx too. We have a vet appt scheduled for Tuesday, Oct 14th, for ultrasound and foot x-rays. It will be good to have a baseline to see what we are dealing with. ...

    He is *very* lucky. Although we keep having discussions about his manners so there are probably points in time that he doesn't appreciate his good fortune. ;)

    It occurs to me after re-reading my original post that i certainly didn't actually make a long story short. :) Sorry about that!

    Thanks for making it through the novella. And thank you for the...
  24. How much time should I spend on this injury rehab? NEW UPDATE post #33 :'(

    I could use some COTH wisdom.

    Long story short, I’ve taken on a project horse. He’s not a project in the conventional sense, in that he is very well trained. This one is a PT/rehab case. I am...

    I bought a grooming block, hoping it would be a miracle. It's not. Back to the bot knife, although the Bic razor thing is worth a try!!
