    If you're going to split vaccines it doesn't help much to just pull out Rabies separately if you're then going to come back with EEE, WEE, WNV, flu, rhino, and tetanus at the same time.

    I have one horse who has white hairs from 2 different stitched areas. He's just special. IME some horses do that easily.

    Cool dani! I think your guy has some "sabino funk" going on with those front socks. The LF is a sock-wanna-be :D

    I wholeheartedly agree on the Progressive Rejuvenaide or Buckeye Foal Aid. What is the mare's diet? More carbs isn't the answer, more nutrition probably is. More food in general? What brands do...

    While that's generally a good idea, it's not something I'd do with a coming 2yo who, as the OP described, is very butt high. At that growth phase, it's often about all they can do to stay upright...

    If there are stitches still there, typically vets don't want you doing anything to it. Ask your vet - most likely s/he'll say "leave it alone".

    Beyond that, once the stitches are out, keep the...

    My N=1 agrees with Katy on this.

    My N=1 is a horse who I strongly suspect, but have never tested, to be IR. At some point in late Spring if he's not muzzled before he gets a little too heavy, he...

    I've never seen what is generally considered rabicano to not include at least some minimal white at the top of the tail.

    Without that white, it's considered to be something else, some Sabino most...

    Put some mineral oil on it to soften things up, then use a rag/sponge wet with hydrogen peroxide and you'll get a lot off. Just make sure nothing will drip down into his eye(s). You could put a big...

    Wow that's amazing that you came back to update! :)

    That said - can't help, the pictures are not remotely good enough to judge any conformation by :(

    It's possible the bone was also bruised, but that ET runs right down the front so wouldn't escape trauma from a head-on blow. Icing is still a good idea at this point.

    If it is indeed feasible, yes, buy your own TC Sr. It's a great feed.

    That said, if Legends Performance pellet (not textured!) is a more feasible option, you could go with that as well. It's nice...

    A lump on the front of a cannon bone tells me it's likely a bruised extensor tendon, and if so, while it might take a good while, will likely go away. I would be icing it for a while, 20-30 minutes...

    I would not be concerned if he's just out of the normal range - that's normal for drawing blood from a resting horse. They really should be exercised for at least a few minutes prior, so the stored...

    TBH I really don't know, because there's a bit more to what's in the forage than just what's in the soil. Meaning - just because there may be a lot of Se in a soil doesn't necessarily mean there's a...

    Rabicano can be really really minimal. My WB I think is a very minimal rab - just a few white hairs at the top of his tail, and seasonal white hairs in his flanks.

    You can't know that the small amount of Se in a free choice salt is enough. You have to have his blood tested to see if, out of everything he's eating, he's getting enough.
