    I agree with asterix. Most of my horses that needed hock injections needed them for a few (2-3) years in their teens -- and then didn't any more once the fusing was over. Do the injections, get...

    it looks to me like tiny solid rounded metal nubs, but I don't know for sure. Call Schneiders and ask them for a side shot if you are interested in how far they stick out and what they are made of. ...

    Yes, to be clear, I meant that gelding is a very basic procedure for a weanling! But NOT the older stallions where it can be a much bigger deal and I too would want them done in a hospital setting. ...

    Aaron is such a gifted rider, I am pretty sure he could ride a donkey around a grand prix and make it look easy. Give him a truly talented horse and there is no stopping him.
