    You want to pass on a horse that is athletic and willing and still so young (so much time to fill out and turn from an ugly duckling into a swan) because you just aren't enamoured with how he looks,...
  2. Back to work after 8-10 weeks? How much how soon?

    Horse has been on stall rest with a small in and out, and walking only under saddle for 8-10 weeks for an extensor tendon (time off wasn't to let the split heal, but to allow the remaining pieces to...

    We did take a hit in 2007/2008, but not quite as bad as the US. Housing market is picking up a smidge but interest rates are super low now.

    I'm unionized, as a gov't employee. Provincial gov't...

    I've had success with a lysol/water mix.. just spray it on after cleaning feet. Same idea as bleach/water. Worked like a charm when I lived in the south and now in the PNW.

    A little update: Approaching 6 weeks of stall rest this Wednesday. He's been handling it pretty well and even when he wants to be uppity, he isn't. He's taken to escaping during stall cleanings, but...

    I work as a correctional officer at a work camp, so lots of walking and moving around. Physically I don't have to lift anything heavy, some typing or desk time but nothing excessive. Potential for...

    Yes you can do it!

    Half marathons don't have to be fast. You can plod along at a 13 or 14 min/mile.

    I would suggest doing a 5km program first, so your tissues and bones have some time to adapt...

    When I wasn't sure my BO would have space for my trailer, I called a few other barns. There were also private listings on Craigslist, folks who had acreage.

    Oh, and bedbugs can go into a dormancy stage, they can potentially go up to 18 months without a meal. Taking furniture out into the cold for a night won't eradicate them.

    Fyi, bedbugs also live in crevices (around baseboards, floorboards, in between joints of bed storage options that have even had the upholstery removed...)

    I had bedbugs years ago. Pain in the...

    I'd definitely request tests before ANYthing even remotely intimate. Inmate populations are 17x more likely to have HIV and 40x more likely to have HepC.

    Congrats! Reading about other's success makes me really think I need to get my butt in gear.

    I've been hemming and hawing and putting it off for months, even though my uniform barely fits, my...

    I wonder if any COTHers local to me play?

    I play net, but also skate out for my co-ed team (defense for the last year, but wing before that). Love to watch the Olympics and World Juniors, but the...

    OP -- I empathize. By the time I discovered that I had them (didn't even know what they were) it was full on infestation.

    My landlords and I had a major language barrier and they refused to...

    First, many sex offenders who prey on children really are lovely soft spoken people who've never raised their voices at people. It's often why they get away with it. Many of my non SO inmates also...

    Don't get me wrong, many of my inmates are nice guys when they aren't commuting crimes against the...

    Thanks for the reply! Was your tear across the tendon? Moos is a vertical split (weird!)

    My guy hasn't taken any lame steps, but I still think time off for swelling to subside is smart. We can...

    My vet isn't expecting the two remaining pieces of tendon to heal together, just to strengthen up (the tendon is split vertically for a reasonable section). Good to hear good results though!

    Laurierace- I have heard that. My vet says he has a client with both hind extensors like mine and the horse does 4 ft jumpers still. I wish I'd caught it sooner but pony was still going like he...
  23. What treatments did you have success with for soft tissue injuries?

    Pony was diagnosed with a vertical tear in his hind long extensor tendon. I was told to pull shoes, give him 2-3 months off (stall rest and easy walking), and that my other options included adding...

    Study the course map, and walk it. As many times as you need to. It's easier for some than others, but you'll figure out a way that works for you!

    The area I most need to ice is the front/top of the cannon bone, so that actually wouldn't bug me ;)

    I'm glad to hear others experiences!
