    She clearly can't be trusted to stay; the hard part may be that she probably doesn't have a clue that what she did was both disrespectful and potentially harmful to the horses involved and ultimately...

    I just want to add to what a few other posters have been saying.

    #1: stop saying that the boarder is not paying full board. It doesn't matter that she's paying $100 less than what others are...

    I'd go ahead and put the hoof boots on her, and paint her soles with Durasole. Giving her a bute a day for the next few days is probably a good idea as well.

    Is it only her front hooves that are...

    It looks almost as though the pair of them are in training for ski-jorring:

    To me, it seems like you really set yourself up for this. I am not excusing the more whack-a-doodle issues that PB has; she's clearly exploiting you to the max. But you gave her the opening.

    If I...

    The poor quality of the hoof now may be related to the lack of nutrition he was getting before he came to you. Every nutritional problem tends to show up in the feet and in the coat.

    You don't necessarily have to stop working on these issues with him over the winter. You should be able to walk down the road or the edge of the corn field almost any time of year.

    I don't think the Back Country cuffs would rub--they're really not that tight around the pastern.

    The cuffs (or uppers) act like a power strap. If you're going to have to replace one of the boots...

    He sounds like a difficult fit as well as being a long-striding horse.

    Just a couple of questions: were you using Easy Boot Glove in the wide sizes? Those are made for hooves that are just as wide...

    You probably ought to get the vet involved. It looks (and the photo might be deceptive) as though the horse is walking on his soles rather than on his hoof walls and frogs. But, if something radical...

    It's interesting that, according to the chart in the second link above, jumping a horse is 9 METs.

    The NYT blog seemed very fair, except for the somewhat arch repetition of phrases like "riding...

    The Little Britches series by Ralph Moody is amazing: it's about a 9 to 18 year old (through the whole series) boy growing up first in Colorado, then in Maine, Boston, back out west, etc. The books...

    There have been number of good viewpoints expressed here, and your position is also an interesting one.

    I would second (or fourth) testing for Lyme disease.

    But it might also be worthwhile posting pictures of his feet, since you're right that if his feet are problematic that can also cause general...

    You might try him in a double-jointed baucher bit (maybe that's what you meant by "hanging cheek"?). Although the it's the headstall that attaches to the upper cheek piece (not the reins).

    I use a...

    Well, at least it is a randomized trial with half the group receiving a placebo, and horses followed over a couple of months. It's certainly better than no data at all, but it is a small sample size....

    If he's constantly stepping on his shoes and pulling them off, then that is usually a problem with how he's trimmed and shod, as JB said above.

    And be careful about allowing the farrier to put...

    I prefer Durasole to Keratex, just because (for whatever reason) I don't feel like I'm inhaling Durasole when I apply it and I do feel like I'm inhaling Keratex.

    Just a random thought.

    Uvex. It's in the $280 range but it's lightweight and ventilated. I wore a GR8 for years, but it was *so* hot in the summer!
