    This might be hard to describe in writing but here goes - when I was having trouble hand-walking my stall rest gelding I had a cowboy type trainer come out to help me. He was rearing and striking out...

    Those eating habits are classic ulcer symptoms. I know you said it's not an ulcer issue, but did you scope to confirm? You can't rule it out otherwise. I would suggest scoping her for ulcers, or just...

    The "negative comments" you are getting are constructive and trying to shed some light on the fact that the way your horse is being kept is just asking for bad behavior and health issues. You said...

    Thanks for asking! More like what hasn't been going on! In Sept/Oct 2012 he was diagnosed with avulsion fractures of both front navicular bones and navicular disease. Was never lame from the...

    My gelding has gotten lumps from injections (ranging from the pea size to more like a flattened golf ball size) and some have lasted 1-2 months before going away. Sometimes he gets them, sometimes he...

    I rehabbed a high front suspensory tear in my then-4-year-old gelding. It was basically the long, slooooow, rehab that you are well-aware of. It was 1 year from the time of injury until I started...

    While there is no financial score card going on in my house, this has worked beautifully for the almost 9 years I've been married - we have our money combined in joint accounts, but we each get an...

    The only thing you can do is allow the vet to do the lameness exam. There's no point in trying to diagnose on your own in an effort to save money - let the vet do the lameness exam and then xray or...

    I used it for my navicular horse. Honestly have no idea if it did anything. Wouldn't do it again.

    I used reserpine powder during stall rest - it's not the big guns needed for explosive horses while handwalking, mine still need xylazine injections for that part. Just takes a bit of the edge off...

    Those symptoms are certainly enough to warrant having your horse evaluated by the vet for ulcers. My horse never went off feed nor was he grumpy under saddle, but was reactive to being brushed around...

    I think only your vet + the surgeon who would remove the chip's second opinion would be able to give you a prognosis as to how your mare might be without it being removed. As Laurierace mentioned, it...

    My gelding used to be in a herd of approx 10 horses and they played hard and were always ripping each other's fly masks off, tearing blankets, etc. The only mask that lasted (and is still good strong...

    I use 20 gauge 1.5 inch needles. Brand of syringe and needle don't matter, just make sure you match up luer locking or slip tips with that type needle.

    Ugh... knees...

    My gelding got 2 chip fractures in the same knee 3 months apart. He did have swelling and heat along with the lameness though. In my experience knees blow up with the smallest...

    My vet won't write a script for compounded pentosan, but will for PentAussie. Just an FYI for those using PentAussie - SmartPak carries it now and if you get the box of 4 you'll get free shipping and...

    After treating my horse's ulcers about 2 years ago, I tried maintaining him on UGard and he became sympomatic again pretty soon (in a matter of 3-6 weeks IIRC). Then did a course of ranititine, got...

    You absolutely should NOT be letting your horse loose in the indoor or anywhere if she is on stall or small paddock rest. Of course she'll take off bucking. Of course she's going to be going crazy at...

    Last year I started showing by myself (i.e. no friend to help, groom, trainer, etc. - just me & the horse) - and was nervous about whether I'd be able to do it. I posted on COTH as well and I would...

    Only thing I can offer in addition to what's already been said is - I made a stall toy of a plastic bottle (OJ, Gatorade, soda, laundry detergent, etc) with holes in the bottom just large enough for...

    I've given 6cc orally and it does work a little bit, so not totallly ineffective, but much better off giving it IM. I'd say it gave me about 1/4 of the level of sedation as what that same dose IM...

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions! I agree that something long enough to be able to touch my horse with it is necessary. I like the idea of adding more cord to a lightweight whip. I tried the...
