    I think that if possible the vet should see him again. You don't say how swollen the leg is, but I'd be concerned about cellulitis or lymphangitis. Maybe the vet has already spoken to you about this?...

    It's easiest to upload the pictures to another site, like Google's Picasa or to Facebook, and then provide a link to that site in your post.

    I have owned two different types of Ariat paddocks, and have always loved them because they provide support and they happen to fit my feet well. The ones that I've had are the Performer Zip IV...

    You need to consult a lawyer.

    If the horse was stolen, or wrongly sold by the trainer, then it is possible that you would have to relinquish the horse to the original owner and the original owner...

    You might go with the Easy Boot Back Country: it's a Glove on the bottom and the top is taken from the Trail model. Because of the top, it's a little more forgiving in terms of sizing than the basic...

    I think one lesson a week is fine; if you can afford to do them a little more frequently, particularly now as you're getting back into riding, then you probably will gain confidence and form a bit...

    The vet should pull a blood sample to be tested. It could be lyme disease, or there are also other tick-borne diseases, or it could be something else. Lyme can cause fever and soreness and stiffness...

    You should post some pictures; if the horse's hair coat is good, and weight is good, it's hard to imagine that the hooves are bad because of nutrition.

    Also, you shouldn't buy into the whole...

    I'd also consider having hoof boots on hand when the shoes are first pulled. They can make a huge difference, particularly on the front hooves. Get some Durasole as well, and paint it on first thing...

    My horse has had lyme twice, with the two times separated by 5 years, so they were probably the result of separate infections.

    The first time she was intermittently lame in the hind end, backsore,...

    It's hard to tell because of the angle of the photos, but the feet look like they have seriously underrun heels and long toes. That may be what is contributing to the dished look.

    You could go to a Duo or Nathe mullen mouth bit. Those generally are about as mild as they get, and often encourage horses who are reluctant to take up contact to do so.

    Often though, when a horse...

    Yes, I was going to say that it's a Pink Stallion complex:winkgrin:.

    Actually it was interesting seeing that after the ad that preceded it (I don't know if everyone else saw the same ad). It was...

    It really doesn't surprise me that she could become herd bound in just a few days. Nor does the neurotic behavior.

    This is a horse who has had one owner and, probably, a very set routine for 9...

    I agree that it's a horse being a horse. And especially it's a horse new to his handler who doesn't quite trust the handler to be able to take care of him when something new comes along.

    I'd say...

    Or Holmes (for Oliver Wendell Holmes)?

    Just trying to understand: are you saying the weight of the bit creates poll pressure? Regardless of the type of bit?

    Personally, I think that if one is feeling a lot of pressure under the poll after just putting the bridle on, without any pressure on the reins or anything, then maybe the straps are done up too...

    I don't think that it's possible that all bits cause poll pressure. I don't see how mechanically that's even possible.

    For a bit to put pressure on the poll when the reins are pulled back, there...

    I think he looks tons better; he just doesn't have a topline.

    Another vote for the Uvex. It's very well-ventilated, particularly in comparison to my previous helmet (which I otherwise liked), a Charles Owen.

    I like how the Uvex helmets look, and Uvex has a...

    I would say try using hoof boots on the fronts when you go out on the roads. You don't have to use the boots all the time when you ride and he doesn't have to be turned out in boots.

    I am married to a very non-horsey man. He really does not get the horse thing at all. He's never said any of these things.

    You mention that he's not acting "ulcer-y," but has his behavior changed at all? More lethargic? Spookier? Any quidding?

    Depending on how long it's been since his teeth were done, you might have...
