    Thanks! Yeah, I picked a few of those things up just now. I also kind of typed it up in a poem form... which is better? In the poem, I ended it in the starting gate.

    OK, great, thanks. This was exactly what I was looking for. Yeah, I know there's a bit of hyperbole; my teacher specifically asked for more of that stuff. How's this, with that stuff cut out?

    Just...
  3. A HR piece of writing.... need feedback ASAP

    Hey All.
    I dropped in because I wrote a HR (racing-related really) piece for my writing class and wanted an opinion from the actual horse people. Here it is:

    Hey All.
    My first post ever in this forum. I dropped in because I wrote a racing-related piece for my writing class and wanted an opinion from the actual horse people. Here it is:

    Tango
    Anglo-Arab gelding born 2002,
    His birthday's May 28.

    Yes, I'm aware of animal renderings in a lot of things. I don't use any of them. I know the reduce reuse recycle thing, but honestly, a lot of deceased horses I know have been rendered, and the idea...
  7. Not trying to start a trainwreck, but does gelatin still have horses? I need to know.

    At age 6, I learned that gelatin had horses in it, and immidiately went cold turkey on all my favorite candies, including marshmallows and [gasp] peeps. I was wondering, with no slaughter in the US,...

    Just to be clear, the sensitivity is very slight - you have to press pretty hard to get any reaction. I'll see how he is tomorrow. Should he go out in to the pasture in the meantime? He hates being...

    No vaccines lately, but he is vaccinated for strangles. In the three years he's lived here he's never had allergies. (Same barn, same routine.) It is in between his two jaw bones, not near his...
  10. Swollen Glands, or..? Why me, why now?

    So, yesterday I went to the barn only to find my 6 year old Anglo arab gelding has what seems to be swollen glands right inbetween his jawbones. He wasn't acting lethargic, and seemed 100% fine, so I...
  11. His dam was not kept at the facility he was;...

    His dam was not kept at the facility he was; actually, she no longer belonged to his former owner. We didn't know that much about his dam; we're not even sure of her breeding. See, it was an agent...

    So, I just got the lovely update from his previous owner. I told her he's lame, and she (she also bred him) told me about how all his relatives are too. :eek::no: Something she neglected to tell me...

    Thanks. He is still doing the snap/pop/kerchunk thing. I was reviewing my insurance, and this is what it says under "Exclusions", regarding injections.

    "Any joint treatment or procedure such...
  14. Yes, I know. I haven't just sat and watched him...

    Yes, I know. I haven't just sat and watched him graze, he's been seen by several vets. Like I said, this is the diagnosis, but other than injections, I don't know how to 'treat' the issue. The vet...

    Patty - You've seen this horse's feet before on the Horseshoes forum, and had some great advice. Thanks for looking into it again. :)
  16. Thanks everyone for the advice. I did talk to the...

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I did talk to the doc about the X-rays, but I'm terrible with many of the terms, so forgive me if I'm vague. What he said was that there is "reaction" in the foot and...
  17. Thanks. He is in turnout from morning to evening,...

    Thanks. He is in turnout from morning to evening, 10 acres with his buds. He eats grass hay only.

    Trak - What ARE arthritic changes? At this point, I will not consider euthanizing him. He is my...

    So it would be approximately $100 for Adequan and Legend per month, plus trimming, boarding, and other stuff? :no: We're in a VERY poor financial situation right now, and are barely managing to keep...

    BTR - What would we do, assuming he has/had arthritis? Thanks.
  20. :no: How much $ is Adequan or Legend, and what...

    :no: How much $ is Adequan or Legend, and what are the differences between that and Hylartin V? What is Surpass? Thanks, sorry for my ignorance.

    All the X-rays are of the RF. He has been back at the knee as long as I knew him, which is over 2 years. He has always had that upright foot. No, I don't have any current hoof photos.

    Dalpal, thank you, I think he's pretty cute too. Best wishes for you and your mare.

    J.D. - Could you explain more please?

    Oh, and I forgot to describe the lameness. In my trimmer's words: 'The...
  23. [UPDATE: Lame as a yearling.. WTF.. ] 6 year old with intense arthritis - wwyd?

    My 6 year old Anglo Arab gelding (3/4 Arab, 1/4 TB) has been 'off' since the summer. He's 14.3h and does training level dressage. We've had him seen by different vets. The first vet said he didn't...

    Took him to the clinic. The eye looks close to normal, almost all the way open, very slightly swollen. Not cloudy. The vet gave me a new ointment to take out anything the Terramycin missed, but the...

    Thank you for your kind words.

    My trainer was out an hour ago to give him Banamine and the Terramycin, (she lives on the premises... She's also my B.O.) and reported that his eye is less warm, and...
