    I want to thank the people who have shared info and appreciate their kindness. It was helpful, but sad, to hear of others tragic experiences.

    If anyone has anything helpful to share, please...
  2. Bluey, there are plenty of people who can't feed...

    Bluey, there are plenty of people who can't feed alfalfa because it adversely affects their horses. I am far from the only person who has ever experienced that. Also, there are other people who...
  3. So is my oldest friend. Like many vets, my...

    So is my oldest friend. Like many vets, my friend also has a closed-mind when it comes to vaccine issues. In spite of many unexplained "coincidences" between vaccinating and new, unexplained health...
  4. The former, not the latter. I am not looking for...

    The former, not the latter. I am not looking for anyone to agree with my concern about the rabies vaccine. However, there is a healthy way to disagree or express another opinion and a nasty way. ...

    I certainly do expect other people to have opinions. There is a civil way to express an opinion and a belittling way. You have the belittling way down to an art form.

    Your views could be...

    Sounds like she is enjoying her life :-) What is her breeding?
    What I have found with a lot of Saddlebreds is that they seem to be ok on alfalfa, perhaps a little more spooky, but it is when they...
  7. Thank you Snowflake. I am sorry about what you...

    Thank you Snowflake. I am sorry about what you went through. It must have been that much harder having bred her. It is easy for people to judge unless they are in your shoes, and the judgment would...
  8. Thanks for your post. While my money was...

    Thanks for your post. While my money was refunded, I am $2000 in the hole due to vet bills, fencing and transport. I won't be getting another "dream horse", at least not for years but thanks for...
  9. My mistake on not adding the "s". Been...

    My mistake on not adding the "s". Been sleep-deprived this week and not at the top of my game.

    Your opinions are just that: opinions. They are not universal truths and even if they were, there...
  10. Thanks Foxtrot. The guy who euthanized the filly...

    Thanks Foxtrot. The guy who euthanized the filly does this as a business. He is 83 years old and has many years of experience. He is concerned that there will be no one to take his place when he...

    Nootka,
    You can always have titers done to see if your dog is still "protected". I have known three vets who attended their 25 vet school reunion. The attendees were all allowed free titer testing...
  12. So glad that the horse was ok. Just seeing the...

    So glad that the horse was ok. Just seeing the fencing and post like that is a heartstopper until you know they are all unharmed.
  13. Thank you. What a horrible experience with the...

    Thank you. What a horrible experience with the TB gelding. I am so sorry that you went through that and so sad for the gelding as well. By the way, you are a compelling writer, as I literally felt...
  14. Thanks Terri.

    Thanks Terri.
  15. I am referring to Dr. Jean Dodd. She is part of...

    I am referring to Dr. Jean Dodd. She is part of the Rabies Challenge Fund, whose goal is to have the rabies vaccine administered only every 7 years for pets.

    The rest of your post is too rude to...
  16. Thank you for your support. The transporters...

    Thank you for your support. The transporters basically said she was crazy from the beginning. I have left several messages with the transport company (US Horse Transport), because I would like to...
  17. Unfortunately, yes.

    Unfortunately, yes.
  18. Hi Nootka, Sorry that your dog reacted that...

    Hi Nootka,
    Sorry that your dog reacted that way. Vaccine reactions usually worsen with subsequent injections. You can get a "letter of exemption" for the rabies vaccine from your vet and the...
  19. I don't know how she survived. That is what makes...

    I don't know how she survived. That is what makes this even more bizarre. I do have photos of her in a pasture as a foal at the side on her dam. The videos I received were of her in a completely...
  20. Actually, the two leading vet immunologists in...

    Actually, the two leading vet immunologists in the world, Dr. Dodds and Dr. Schultz both believe in vaccinosis. Most vets will deny it exists because a high percentage of their income is from...
  21. Thanks Bluey. Didn't know that about locoweed. ...

    Thanks Bluey. Didn't know that about locoweed. Definitely doesn't match her behavior. The day she arrived was totally frantic, whereas last Monday, she was more like the energizer bunny. The last...
  22. fatwhitepony, Thank you for your post. I am...

    fatwhitepony,
    Thank you for your post.
    I am so sorry about what you are going thru. It does sound like your foster filly does need to be euthanized for the safety of everyone, including herself....
  23. danceronice, the rabies vaccine can cause erratic...

    danceronice, the rabies vaccine can cause erratic behavior, visual disturbances, and lack of appetite in horses. The term is called "vaccinosis". This filly did have a poor appetite. She would...
  24. The vet did mention locoweed as a possibility.

    The vet did mention locoweed as a possibility.

    What you write is sadly true. I don't dismiss that a brain tumor was possible. It certainly makes more sense than anything else.
