  3. Hives and edema in the legs...anyone seen this?

    My horse presented with hives over a week ago. His turnout buddy also had them, so we are guessing something in his/their pasture. They are the only 2 on the farm who had hives. The other horse's...

    Thank you everyone!

    I'm hopeful that we can get this resolved, but I'm still very tentative on who to call and what to do next. It is very hard when there is no clear consensus amongst the...

    Thank you again JB.

    The vet felt that the farrier would need x-rays to see how much toe could/should be removed, and to confirm coffin bone angle. I have not consulted with the farrier yet...

    Are there any good resources out there for horse owners on these issues?

    I had one done by the folks at Smith Worthington. Very reasonably priced, knowledgeable people. They were great to work with, and I'd totally use them again. I was leery sending it off (no local...

    The good news with foals is that you can still influence bone growth and health. Even if there isn't much you can do externally, I'd definitely be taking a close look at the foal's diet, and...

    When people think about switching, they often get hung up on the brand names, or they don't look past the % of protein, fat and fiber.

    Tear the tags off the products and look VERY closely at them,...
