    If you can, I would up the senior for a few days while he gets use to the flavor of the tri-hist. Also, soak the senior for 20 minutes or so, so it expands and the meds mix in well.

    Right or wrong, the dam is almost never acknowledged. Breeding is most commonly listed as sire x dam's sire or sire x dam's sire x dam dam's sire. It is not at all because the mare is unimportant,...

    Freaky fractures happen in horses that have never been given Tildren. I suspect most fractures are not caused by one or two doses of Tildren most horses receive, but rather the owners of those horses...

    Usually, toughened, dry skin is the cause of cracking. Intentionally increasing toughness may give you deeper, more painful lesions.

    Did I miss where she said the vet didn't come out? It sounds like the vet evaluated the horse when he was "called out" to see the horse.

    I've never understood this rule. Especially in the Junior division. A junior cannot take a pony to NAJYRC, which is unfortunate. Why limit that pony and rider to second level (fei ponies).
