    He's not remotely ewe-necked, and it makes me sad your vet said he is :(

    he looks like he toes out a little on both fronts. If the trainer who broke him at 3 said he was straight, and now it's not...

    Right, it doesn't cross-pollinate, it merely invades via seeds, in terms of introducing the particular endophyte.

    The rule of thumb is add 2h to the 12 month height, then 1h to th 24 month height.

    But, you say he's leggy, so he may have done a bit more growing up front than "normal".

    Ranitidine and omeprazole do the same thing - reduce acid production. I won't pretend to know the mechanism by which they do that (though I should learn it).

    Neither does anything for the acid...

    It could be an impaction that's building and making her feel just...puny. It's good the vet is coming. A colic situation should be high on the list of things to check.

    Do you have a picture of the 34cm Duett on her - no pad, girthed up? It would help to know if it's the right shape but just too narrow, or not quite the right shape.

    I would take her jammies off once a day for a good grooming, to make sure you're not missing some skin ickies. She'll appreciated the scratching too, since she won't be able to do it for herself....

    This is definitely a purely mud issue, as this is not where horses hang out or congregate. It's simply a pathway between 2 areas, and through a gate. And not flat in any direction :\
