    Well, I loved the UDBB, and only a week ago decided that I was on the board so often that it was only right to pay the fee, which I did. And a week later it closes down.

    What is wrong with banning stacks of pads, as well as soring. Please, let me understand, do you think stacking up a foot is OK? I am not sure if the arguments against regulations are in support of...
  3. Let start with the stacks, are you defending...

    Let start with the stacks, are you defending stacks? I really don't care how heavy or light a shoe is, as long as it is not jacking up the hoof.
  4. Ditto! There may be a few ounces of difference...

    Ditto! There may be a few ounces of difference between an aluminum shoe and a steel keg shoe, but that is it. That is a really silly argument, the unlawful shoes are the stacks, stilts, "padded up"...

    I believe that the bell boots in question are weighted bell boots. These are not therapeutic or protective.

    In dressage shows, you are right, horses warm up in polo wraps, sport boots, bell...

    Weakens the argument????

    Is there anyone out there arguing FOR soring?

    "By enacting a law banning The Pads & Action Devices, the common practices of Soring will be unnecessary."

    Sorry,...
  7. I wish the OP would change the title of this...

    I wish the OP would change the title of this thread, as it is misleading. It brought my attention since I have been to R andR many times, my horse was operated on there, I respect them! What I am...

    Sure, Riddle can chime in any time, and of course Hopper too! Hey, why don't you contact them and see if any of them will adjust their statement (again) to address stacks and chains. You seem to...

    Still waiting for response from Rood as to why they removed this sentance from their original statement:

    "and in the reformation of the municipal celebration of Shelbyville, Tennessee to its...

  11. The Buffoons, my friend, are people like you who...

    The Buffoons, my friend, are people like you who think that putting horses feet on stilts and making them walk on their hind feet is acceptable. The rest of the world is aghast. Some sensationalism...

    um, do you think the article in the Chatanoogan newspaper today was written by a troll? Btw, the vet was not misquoted at all, if you read the article in Hoof Blog. Rood has already altered their...

    The statement has been modified on the Rood and Riddle website:

    New Statement:

    Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital is unequivocally opposed to the soring of horses and fully supports the efforts of...

    Hmmm, so the good Dr. H is being called out in print, in a newspaper. Would love the know what his defenders here, the ones screaming to sue the OP of a thread questioning the R and R doctors'...
  15. If the presence of R and R Dr. was a testament to...

    If the presence of R and R Dr. was a testament to their support of Tennessee Walker without "aberration" of the natural gaits, then the Dr. did them no favor by stating that all was well at the event...

    "Padded" is such a soft word, brings to mind comfort, softness, cushiony. It means to many the little piece of leather a farrier puts under the shoe. It is deceptive and just plain misleading way...

    Read the blog and hope you keep updating!!!! How on earth did that horse trader guy get all the pertinent info about the horses training (which was actually factual!) but no info on his name. Wish...

    I too am shocked by some of the members responses too!! Why on earth is something the doctor was properly quoted as saying not up for discussion?? What a sue happy country we live in. How is it...

    Please, is this really a reason to scream for suing? No wonder the courts are jam packed. The OP quoted the Dr. and gave her opinion. Anything in print or film is fair game for discussion and...

    Is Dr. H forgetting the HSUS video where horses were being beaten for flinching? These horses are trained not to react so a normal palpation exam is not going to elicit the same responses are a...

    Well done! I am curious as to whether he might have a hot nail or abscess if he is dead lame. He didn't look lame in front in the video. If the Amish shoed him I would get those shoes off and have...
