    I've never had a horse turn down SMZ's dissolved in water only. I suspect they are a little on the sweet side. I've also used them crushed in grain, but it has to be a fair amount of grain, or it...

    Have a look at her. See if her feet are as bad as they may be. See if there is some conformation under that mane. Leave your trailer at home with a hitchlock. Give key to hitchlock to sensible...

    I would start with simple things first. Shoeing.!

    It is usually considered helpful to use a degree pad or wedge shoes, to elevate the heel and take pressure off the soft tissues in the foot. Maintaining the angle is a lot easier in shoes. And if...

    I would say you are asking for too much too soon. Angel is correct, she needs a longer rein, and much less emphasis on where her head and nose are, and more concern on slowly building the strength...

    How soon after the blocking was the ultrasound done? IMHO but expensive experience, doing an ultrasound immediately after blocking will show nothing despite severe damage. It is a nuisance to return...

    Ring bone has this nasty habit of having a horse appear sound, performing well, and then the next day being very lame.

    Try shoes, but get a good handle on ringbone, what it is and how it acts.

    I suspect that the combo of Vaseline and beta dine, while not my choice would work. I think scrubbing was unhelpful. Massaging in strongly with the finger tips seems to work better. and picking...
