    Fluid build up is no indication of OA or any efficacy of anything in a joint. It is an indicator of laxity in the bursa. In other words, if you are judging how well things are working simply by fluid...

    Always lived here. I never heard any of that from my vets at CSU and LEMC. Our hay (western slope) gets tested and never have supplemented.

    High maintenance? How so? Can you say OVER SUPPLEMENTATION?

    My old TB Advanced horse (he was 18 when we last ran about 5 years ago) ran on timothy hay, strategy and typical joint injections. When...

    In the Speed Study, we did catch a sudden death. The data showed a distinct change in the average speed toward the end of the course even though it was not significant. The other horses either were...

    I think your surgeons are not very educated on helmet design and what deformable materials are. All equestrian helmets have deformable liners. Many surgeons are not very educated on engineering and...

    The flip side is that those horses are insanely cheap but you have to put all the work in on them and there is usually blood involved too. I'm the kind of buyer who waits for "exciting."

    Got multiple engineering degrees. Still disagree.

    Why? In both articles it is like saying, "We should have world peace. It would make everyone happy!" What is missing is the mechanism and method....

    The venom is toward professionals who continue to advocate a business model that shows no proven efficacy. These "so called experts" propose things without any mechanisms or idea of how to fund these...

    I read the article and I give him props for advocating a "new idea". Yes, professional looking out for a professional and his pocket book. No real interest in maintaining the sport. He is just adding...

    I just want to note that after wearing a Ride-Safe bracelet daily for almost 3 years, the ID number on the back does wear out.

    I still like it as it is something to identify the body when I hack...

    HUH?!! This makes no sense at all. While I understand that some horses may move better/feel better in Al, I am pretty sure that no horse is "used to aluminum." They may be used to a specific trim and...

    I don't understand your concern or question? Part of eventing (heck part of RIDING in general) is being able to ride and function in very adverse conditions. It is a test of horsemanship. The riders...

    Yep, ride in the indoor when it is 0. Play hockey when it is below 0. Keeps you in shape and you practice falling.

    Everything new was once old. Are we going back to the 1970s? I was taught this ride back then. Doesn't work for me and my ankles.

    You see a lot of that in TX, NV, AZ, CA, where it is warm year round. They just have a covered arena and then hedge around them.

    This makes no sense. There is a good chance your chosen career will not have any base near the university or city you choose.

    It is all a function of the size and orientation of the lesion. Some come back great. Others, not so much, much as BNFE describes.

    I doubt it. My money is that the shredding is due to the parting lines from the cast mold. They are not an indication of poor quality of the metal cast. They are an indication of poor post cast...

    Horse Zorb!

    Regretfully, it might lend impetus to really push the horse flipping to new highs. How high will he bounce at the drop?

    I would do exactly what your DH is doing. I would expand the holes, polish the insides, adding a bevel on the top and bottom while removing burrs. I never had your exact problem but I have had...

    "Plugging in" does not have anything to do with glow plugs. It is an engine block heater that keeps both the coolant and engine oil warm enough to support the combustion of diesel. Diesel fuel,...

    What you do though is turn down the brake controller gain so the trailer brakes will not lock up. I have seen a couple of semi trailers with chains but that was in the way back country and really...
