    This is extremely exciting news and makes me jealous that I don't live in the area anymore. My one teeny tiny quibble - in late July, it is hot as Hades in Virginia, and the ground is rock-hard. I'm...

    You don't need to worry about mercury. First, fish oil comes from ground-up small fish, and only larger fish accumulate mercury in their flesh (tuna, salmon, etc., prestige fish that are worth too...

    I would also recommend Waredaca. They should have a decent schoolie who will lend confidence to your friend, and it's a great place to haul to with an indoor and outdoor.

    Not a lot of the very good trainers have schoolies, I'm afraid. Tulip Pond Farm in Poolesville usually has nice schoolies, and the trainer is decent. Maybe Bascule Farm in Poolesville might have...

    I have a chestnut mare. In her younger years she wasn't difficult in terms of attitude, but she was nervous/anxious. She's never been b*tchy. However, she is spayed. :) It happened before I got her....

    What an apt description of the NC State Legislature.

    I participated in one of the Moral Monday protests this summer in Raleigh. It was an inspiring event that included people from all backgrounds....

    I haven't been to the Cville Dover (when I lived there, it was still Dominion), but the Raleigh one is not overly special. It's a decent size, but nearly half the store is human clothes. Lots of...

    It all makes sense to me. WFP's owners wanted to sell; ok, horse gets sold. WFP wants to maintain a good relationship with the owner, not to mention owner is monied enough to keep the horse in...

    I went to Flowerhill to ride XC for a few days some years ago. Great, safe horses, had a blast. I would absolutely recommend it. http://www.flowerhill.net Almost came home with a horse - if the...

    Hi all, just to clarify, the thrush did not become a severe problem until farrier #1 put a pad on the foot (with magic cushion underneath which can't have helped the bacteria sitch at all). So vet #1...

    We don't need to get into a philosophical debate, but I am having a hard time ignoring this as your comment perfectly encapsulates the heart of the problem I've been having with farriers since I...

    Those images are not nearly sharp enough to really look at the joints. He wasn't prepped for joint imaging (not thoroughly cleaned so no dirt showed up) and like I said, this is a cell phone picture...

    I don't think they tried to go to 5 degrees in one shoeing, although the feet did look quite different after. We didn't go to NCSU - I went to Dick Mansmann: http://equinepodiatrync.homestead.com As...

    Yes, we did do a lameness exam with flexions before both sets of x-rays. Flexions were negative, and we did not block. Given that the pain occurs just after the trim, and it both feet, I'm pretty...

    JB, the x-rays were taken when he was lame. The first set was done about 4 weeks after a trim. The second set were taken about 2 weeks after the second trim.

    Come Shine - no, not white line. I...

    Yeah, I wasn't clear, the farrier that did him the third time (with the vet's recommendation) was a different guy who works only with the vet. Farrier #1 is dead to me.
  18. Help me figure out why my horse's feet hurt!

    Hi all, I am hoping you can help me come up with some ideas to discuss with my vet about my horse's ouchy feet. I'll try to keep it brief. Thank you for any ideas - I'll take anything at this point....
  19. Thanks for all the ideas. I think I should...

    Thanks for all the ideas. I think I should probably get her tested for Cushings because I sure don't want to be dealing with this every year. As for her diet, she is getting Purina Senior, and is in...

    Thanks. I thought of Cushings, but from the photos I see online at least, her coat isn't nearly that woolly, it just doesn't shed out quite as sleekly as it used to. But it might be worth getting...
  21. Help me solve my poor old mare's skin problems!

    My 23-year-old quarter horse mare, Classic, has lived out with minimal blanketing for most of her life without any skin issues. But the last couple of years, she has been contracting fungus...

    I was at the June CHP unrec, and the tack store was out of pinney holders by 9:30 am. By the number of riders who had their pinneys duct taped or safety-pinned to their vests, it's pretty clear that...

    To be fair, Nigel always went on and on about "costly rails" to the point of describing just how much money each rail was worth. I never really cared for that. He was great on XC though! He was...

    I don't know, but I remember watching Ian Stark go around his last Rolex a few years ago without any boots on his horse. I guess you just know what works for you.
