    It does help to make that decision for yourself and always stick to it. My criteria was if it was pain or quality of life, or if they were not eating or losing weight.

    I was thinking the same thing. Def not ridden back to front , nose tucked under too much, and low.

    I learn more by listening to other's experiences than listening to an attack on their statements. I do think that most people think that way. A good farrier can certainly explain their experiences...

    No, actually I don't have recite expert knowledge back to colonial times to think it proves that one is a great farrier. And I especially don't have to touch up my pictures in Photoshop before I...

    That's odd, I spoke with Dave Duckett last month and I mentioned your name and he had no idea who you were.

    I never bring up Dave as a friend. It doesn't make one look any smarter.

    It happened to my old guy, and the vet recommended very soft hav because be said it could be the harder heay was irritation. After a few years, he went to wet alfalfa cubes.

    I wonder about how he is with bute too.

    Just to rule things out, have you tested his front feet for pain?

    Blood? I would have went ballistic.

    You might not want to soak the foot and make it soft, maybe you would want to toughen up the soles by applying Durasole.

    I'm a label reader. And in reading labels I have found a lot of BS in what some supplement makers say. I've read "vitamins" when it turned out to be one vitamin. And then there's the Biotin BS. ...

    I would tell this friend that if he doesn't get treatment , you are no longer friends. You can't possibly continue to be a friend with someone who lets their horse stand in pain and does Nothing. ...

    Op's Quote" Yesterday he felt completely sound when I got on, forward, soft, just great. Saddle pad started slipping maybe 20 mins into ride, so I hopped off to fix it. Got back on and he was...

    If my horse was lame from going barefoot, she may need shoes to stop her from being in pain. Supplements will take months to improve the sole. Topicals are fine, but a temporary fix.

    Of course that top hat looks devine. But safety first. I have to appreciate those who opted for helmets, and the winner wore a helmet. I think the professionals need to set an example for those...
