    Not a current vet student, but I was one not that long ago!

    I did find time to ride during vet school - it was the only thing that kept me sane. There were definitely whole weeks (midterms,...

    Thanks for clarifying, Rob! Glad to know that we were reading it wrong - it wasn't completely clear and we don't use the go pass here, so we were worried. She got a new Coggins just to be on the safe...

    Click on "equine" and be sure to read the whole thing. And I agree with you 100%. Not sure why you're angry with me... I didn't make the law or the...

    Mvp, great description! That's what I've been doing with mine - I just sit chilly and wait him out, keep him centered and focused at the ditch, and eventually he gives up and hops over. It's taking...

    Thanks, bfne. He's pretty good with the one we have at home, but we've been jumping tarps, liverpools etc. since that incident. I've been thinking about trying Jimmy's method but haven't actually...

    AEC Coggins PSA - clarification!

    Wanted to let anyone traveling to AEC from out of state know... Apparently the Omnibus says 12 months for Coggins but the state of Texas requires 6 months for horses going to competitions from out of...

    etr, I did try lunging him over it, as well as taking him over it in hand, and he would have no part of it :(

    I needed this thread...I have a 5 yo Trakehner that has given me some problems with ditches too. Nothing all that dramatic, although we went schooling last weekend at a venue that had only one...

    I don't know how your fingers compare to mine, but I often find that gloves are too short in the fingers, sometimes up to 1/2". I have found the SSG Digital to fit me pretty well; I've also worn the...

    Oh my, he reminds me of my Marvin! He was found outside a little over a year ago, and bottle raised. He came to live with me around Christmas last year. He sounds a lot like Pilgrim - is always into...

    I could have written your post 10 years ago. My gelding sounds exactly the same as your guy - OK in stadium, schools XC like a beast, but when it comes to putting it all together at an event, we had...

    I'm with Marshfield on this one - I never kept spays or neuters overnight when I worked in small animal practice, because there was no overnight staff and I would rather the pet be at home with its...

    I developed it during my senior year of vet school when I was pretty much on my feet at least 12 hours a day, some of it on concrete/asphalt. It was miserable and I still have a bit of a flare-up...

    He actually had been diagnosed with lung cancer a while ago - not sure how long. I don't know if his accident was somehow related, or just that - an accident. Regardless, very sad news. The horse...

    A friend of mine rode with him when she was a kid and said that apparently he fell down some stairs (they think he may have thrown a clot/had a stroke) and hit his head and passed away. :( It...
