    Does he handle better (or at least no worse) with a handler on either side, post parade-style? I had a field boarder who had a nasty shoulder-drop-and-bolt move in-hand, and that was how we handled...

    I have an aged small Welsh Pony in my care. He's...

    Honestly, pen and paper. Each horse has a file with boarding contract, owner's liability release, and all the "new horse" info. Previous years' health records are also in the file.

    I have one on 2mg/day (recently diagnosed, hopefully we can scale back once it's under control) and one on 2.5mg/day. The 2.5mg pony gets laminitic on anything less. And yes, it's cheaper and far...

    I did a bone scan on my mare with nonspecific training issues but no observable lameness -- strongly suspected back & possibly also SI. In my case it confirmed kissing spines and SI inflammation, as...

    Welcome to Potomac Hunt country! I'm no help on the drive and layovers, but I would definitely recommend doing the PHF series before you leave home. We're getting past peak season but it's not...

    If you have good people skills (or are willing to acquire people skills), there are jobs in the equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) fields that do not necessarily involve riding. And...

    Be sure to visit Brooke Grove and see if the turnout situation will work for you. Very nice facility, very nice price, boarders seemed friendly when I have visited. Turnout is mostly larger groups,...

    I have a second-hand MicroRain (MR25 model). Due to low water pressure we had to have a booster pump installed -- be sure you have your water pressure situation squared away before buying. Mine is...

    Yes, you can get a negative result. In my case the horse was actively ataxic and we repeated the titer in a few weeks in case the antibodies hadn't caught up yet. Still negative. (Dx cervical...

    I'm with everyone who says get it cultured ASAP. But in terms of finding alternate quarantine arrangements, call Purdue. I'm sure the hospital keeps a list of barns to refer clients for quarantine,...

    I have one in the barn who presented with "crabwalking" around the first of the year. After multiple rounds of diagnostics and treatments, he has been retired. The ultimate diagnosis in this case...

    I am fused T5-L4 to correct scoliosis. I was riding in weekly lessons at the time of my procedure and I was back in the saddle (with surgeon's blessing) at 3 months post-op. I was jumping again at...

    I might write off a first bad blood sample as bad luck. Twice in a row and I would be looking for a different vet to handle my lab work. It's just not that hard to get blood to the lab in the...

    Your horse is receiving an alfalfa mix hay. If he's alfalfa-sensitive, the hay would also be a problem. He's getting way more alfalfa in his daily diet than whatever pound or two you added a couple...

    Based on the details and being in the area, it isn't hard to guess which vet is working on this horse. If that lameness specialist is recommending a neurectomy, they are at the point where the...

    Another big, long-oval headed person here. Depending on my hair situation, I have worn 7 1/2-7 3/4 helmets. I have finally come to the place where I just suck it up and shell out for the $$$...

    On a horse who ended up with a nasty case last winter, I ended up clipping the affected area plus a little buffer (to mid-fetlock, in this case), scrubbing with chlorhexadine, and drying thoroughly. ...
