    Can she start trotting ground poles? Raised cavalletti?
  2. smay, that's the ideal scenario for a small,...

    smay, that's the ideal scenario for a small, partial clip. A fat horse WILL lose weight if he is partially clipped. Not enough to be COLD, but just to burn a few more calories. Works like a charm....
  3. Herbal products rarely contain what they claim to, and worse . . .

    A medical test answers a question. You have to ask the RIGHT QUESTION in order for a specific test to give you a CORRECT ANSWER. A flexion test asks the question "does it hurt this animal to have...

    I think you have to get a lot closer to an ideal fit right off the bat, because there's not a lot of adjusting you can do. But the flip side of that is that there isn't a lot of adjusting you NEED...

    The facility you have is going to dictate how easy or hard your life is going to be, and what compromises you will be forced (yes, forced!) to make. :) Think long and hard about what kind of time...

    Shivering is not the goal. Burning calories to
    keep warm is. My vet says he wishes more people would partially clip their fat horses like I do with my Shetland.

    Great news, but vertebrae are difficult to assess for fractures by X ray, especially in the T spine, because of the complicated anatomy. MRI is so much more accurate. So I'd write it off to the...

    Resurrecting the thread to see if you all are still willing to help on Saturday? Probably mid afternoon--should have official times later today. :)

    Of all the things listed the modality I would have the easiest time swallowing as safe, effective, and likely to help would be the cheapest: Pentosan. It's plenty easy to get at the moment. I've...

    Yeah, the term seems to mean nothing when you boil it down. Typical pseudoscientific jargon--sounds ominous, means nothing. :sigh:

    Monkeying with the endocrine system is a bad idea, just like...

    That's right, snugglerug. Some tremendously loud murmurs are produced by very small things. :) And conversely, if a loud murmur suddenly gets quiet, often you've got trouble brewing.

    It has been my unfortunate experience that a lot of vets are stricken in terror by the presence of murmurs, without any real reason. Good luck tomorrow! I hope you will give us a very detailed (and...

    The term "endocrine disruptor" confuses me. It is more of a media buzzword than a strict biological entity as far as I can tell.

    Well they do have plenty of enzymes, and they're crucial in protein digestion but to ferment forage, yeah--gut flora are mighty important!

    That explanation of why a R-sided murmur is worse than a L-sided murmur makes no sense to me at all, sorry. :(

    And the "loudness" of a murmur means NOTHING to me. Zilch. Nada. Soft murmurs can...

    Interesting conversation! I won't go into gory details but the topic of soy and estrogen came up and she told me that there is some research that indicates that, at least in humans, an ability to...

    As in all things, a matter of preference. When the first thing I see is MAKEUP then I think it looks awful. Especially eye makeup. But who can tell another person what to do in this regard?

    Hardly a revelation. :confused:

    I wonder what the findings would be if there was a way to get a dead-honest questionnaire of how much fitness work lower level event horses are actually asked to...
