    The thoracic vertebrae include the withers, as such the chiropractor can adjust them just as any of the others. The withers often are pulled out of alignment by mounting from the near side and...

    Not sure why you believe your version to be more accurate than that of other posters here (other than you being your own biggest fan of course).

    I believe that 'there isn't much a chiro can do for a front end lameness', is a wildly off-base generalization.
    Are you aware that the front end includes the shoulder, withers, and neck?

    I'm not saying a chiro would help this horse in particular, but this is a wildly off-base generalization.

    Considering the costs of alternatives, I would try it as a diagnostic if nothing else,...

    If it were an option for me, I would consider feeding this since it has no soy in it.

    And just because it contains some high starch ingredients (corn, barley), doesn't mean necessarily it's high...

    'Internal structures' may be one of my favorite terms used by people trying to talk about the hoof. The hoof wall grows down and needs to be trimmed. What internal damage are we talking about? What...

    How do you manage the PPID? That is my question! And the question of how do you know the thin horse is IR, is that a rhetorical question or are you asking me about the specific horse? Testing?

    And this is exactly my problem. An IR or PPID hard keeper horse. Who can't have high starch or a lot of fat. And now soy is sounding suspect.
