  1. Bah.... this is why all farriers should carry...

    Bah.... this is why all farriers should carry it. Nothing personal to owners, but I do it. That way I know it's done (correctly). Plus, it has to be done on naked feet.

    While you wait,...

    Not just you. It was unprofessional. Too bad professionalism doesn't make a competent farrier though.

    He may be reluctant to shoe him because your horse has some scary walls. That would...
  3. Any farrier that won't put shoes on a foot sore...

    Any farrier that won't put shoes on a foot sore horse, is one you don't want.

    He might feel badly that your horse is sore after his trim. For him to expect that horse not to be sore, is sort of...
  4. AMEN!!!!:yes: Your horse has tissue paper...

    AMEN!!!!:yes:

    Your horse has tissue paper walls right now. No wall support and a saturated foot can mean big trouble. Sore = inflammation. Inflammation IS laminitis. Laminitis means bone loss....

    Just a quick update. Raylan is doing fabulous! I will have updated pictures in a few weeks.

    I do want folks to know that his previous FL owner, is working with us to do what's best for him and...

    I work on a lot of WLD. Without radiographs, you don't know for sure. What I do see for certain, is a thin soled horse with a really bad fungal wall infection that has delaminated his wall quite a...

    Thanks everyone and I will pass along the appreciation to his new Mom.

    So coincidental, I was seriously considering bailing him myself as I lurk here. He reminded me of the horse I had as a...

    I did not work on the horse in FL. .. only after the move up here.

    A client of mine made a deal and he arrived in Maryland last Friday. I offered free services after getting info from his veterinarian to help him, get him sound (he wasn't) if possible and keep him...

    X-rays and external landmarks aside, I would like to urge frequent trimming on these horses as the blood supply tends to follow the distortion. Much like the quick in a dogs nail. It is easy to hit...

    I swear there needs to be a warning on the label.

    I accidently burned my daughter's pony last year.

    I was livid and wrote to the company. They sent me a water based product which didn't work...

    It sounds as though your horse probably has (at least) rotational, and perhaps angular deviations in the limb causing the skewed hoof and the loading (not flat), that you are seeing.

    Not defending...

    Not to frighten you, but I had a horse that suffered a fracture of one of the atlas wings of the skull. He exhibited the same symptoms. He was ataxic and couldn't lift his head. I had to put him...

  18. *ADOPTED* 9yr Palomino Mare (QH?) in Mt. Airy, MD

    Bella is a 9 year old QH (?) mare that I rescued a year ago from a bullet because she was in a field, 400lbs overweight, in acute founder and couldn't move. The backhoe had been called:(

    I had four epidurals for my sciatica :eek: and then finally went to the chiro. Along with regular adjustments, he has me in a sacral belt which is my new best friend :lol: The thing has been...

    Oh wow, it IS the same horse. No improvements since then? I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but if he is still landing toe first, you need to address it SERIOUSLY right now, or that joint...

    Your description of his lameness sounds like he is landing slightly toe first at the walk. When this happens, it will cause the tendons and ligaments to "kerchunk" (technical term :lol:) or "snap"...
