    Your horse is young, that is definitely in his favor, plus you know the cause, and sounds like you're doing all the right things for him. Just remember, laminitis recovery is a marathon, not a...

    Does Bratty behavior = improved health?

    Pardon me if this seems rambling, I am kind of thinking this out by typing it out. Subject is our 20+ yr. old draft cross gelding. As a younger horse, he was known for his rather destructive...

    Somehow I missed this until today. I had been following Munchkin's story over the weeks. Condolences to you, I think it is extra-difficult to lose a younger animal. I hope you can have comfort...

    So sorry for your loss. I had been checking on this thread, hoping against hope that your boy would get one more miracle. I also own an OTTB, who was given what amounted to a death sentence unless...

    Who else can remember when worming your horse involved having a vet come out, insert a long rubber hose up the horse's nostril down into the stomach, and pour a liquid worm medicine through the tube...

    We spent a lousy weather day here in NJ, watching the steeplechases! It was great coverage, especially considering the bad weather. The switching back and forth between the 2 venues went very...

    As I was watching the post parade and they mentioned his $9500 price tag, I said to husband, wouldn't that be a hoot if that horse beat the million-dollar ones? I also thought he was a nice looking...

    It sounds like a consult with that trainer is in order. If the horse could be sent away to him, probably all the better. I'm trying to recall, I have heard or read about a way to deal with a horse...

    In light of some other posts, I want to stress again, please do not go after this horse with a whip, even a longe whip. With his current temper, and if he was abused as you suspect, it would be like...

    I agree with a lot of what has been said, especially that you should NOT be handling this horse and putting yourself in danger, especially when he is not even yours!

    OK, here is our sarcoid story - our TB got one on his ear a few years ago. It started out as a bump on the very edge of his ear. At first we thought it was an embedded tick. It gradually grew. We...

    My 18 yr. old OTTB blackmails us into blanketing him at night every year... He isn't clipped, has a pretty thick coat, they are on 24/7 turnout with access to a shed. However, once it gets below 40...

    So sorry to read this update. She was a beautiful filly, it makes me angry that her life was cut so short due to callousness, greed, and downright cruelty.

    I can't answer your exact questions, but will tell you about our 18 yr. old OTTB. At age 4, he had 2 slab fractures in the same knee. The owner couldn't afford surgery, so the horse was...

    I think TB's are more weather-sensitive than other horses with thicker hides. We have a TB gelding, a draft cross gelding, and a pony mare. The TB is 18 and in good health. But, for the last 2...

    Sending sympathies - we have been dealing with a founder/abcess situation in our draft cross gelding since August!!! He had laminitis a few times earlier in his life, but has been pretty good for...

    There are different ways to word things. I wouldn't say to him - "Why did you do my horse's heels this way", but I might ask him, "Why do you think my horse's heels are like this? They look...
