    My vet runs a drug screen for about $250 that looks for the common ones, NSAIDS and tranqs. Takes 4-7 days to come back - during which time I'm usually arranging shipping and things, but I won't...

    How long ago did you buy him? If they were injecting his knees, do you have the date of last injection (or was that not disclosed to you)?

    I would pick the Appaloosa unless the lack of an indoor will limit your riding time. Having the horse with more training will be of no use if you can't ride it because the ring is frozen.

    The Eskadron ones come with colored elastic parts and white padding parts. However, I prefer to just use the two separate pieces - Eskadron wrap and Saratoga Bandage.

    The Signnature line of Custom Saddlery saddles is an off-the-rack line. You can't customize anything. There are limited tree sizes too (no MW). Personally, I think the leather is sub-par for the...

    I'd try Previcox or bute again. I might also try an injectable, like Pentosan or Legend. I wouldn't expect a joint supplement to do much at this point.
