    25 minutes to barn from home or work (which are 5 miles apart). 30 minutes to an hour to get back home on weekday afternoons, depending on traffic.

    My gelding lived in the Easy Boot Trail for an entire winter following a mild case of laminitis. They stayed on 24/7 in a 1/4 acre paddock and held up very well (although I did buy a 2nd pair so I...

    My gelding had to wear hoof boots for an entire winter due to laminitis, in a 1/4 acre paddock, with rain, mud, etc.

    His feet were FAR drier inside the boots than if he hadn't been wearing them. ...

    I personally think that MSM is probably more effective and it's definitely cheaper. I buy it from HorseTech so I know that it's made in the US and not China.

    My mare has an area on the left side of her neck/withers that sweats profusely sometimes during warm weather, even when she's only mildly sweaty elsewhere. In her case, it's obviously nerve damage...

    I'm pretty much convinced they work if you buy the right product. My gelding had watery manure for years. The vet said it was from hay, not to stress over it, and if I really wanted it to clear up,...

    Navicular is one matter, but with shelly feet and frequent abscesses I would really be looking at his environment and nutrition. My mare had the crappiest feet when I got her. Shelly, brittle,...

    Loss to top line was the earliest symptom of Cushing's in my gelding. At least 2 years prior to a laminitic episode at which time he still tested normal. It wasn't until a year past the laminitis...

    My gelding immediately lifts his right front leg and kind of curls his head towards it anytime he thinks he is being abused.

    Not preparing his lunch fast enough? Leg goes up. Bath? Leg goes up....

    My gelding was always spookier indoors, up until the current barn, where it doesn't bother him at all. So I am generally spookier indoors as well. And round pens really bother me for riding. I...

    24 is too old to re-home. I have pretty significant anxiety issues in general, and my riding issues are made worse by a fall when I was first learning to ride a few years ago (I was 36 at the time)....

    Doesn't Cushings sometimes interfere with the ability to regulate body temperature?

    When were her ACTH levels last checked? Maybe she needs an increased pergolide doseage?

    I used to board at a barn where the BO would mock her boarders on FB. The worst was reserved for those who weren't friends with her on FB, but it was pretty tacky nevertheless.
