  1. Well, maybe she did know, and just didn't feel...

    Well, maybe she did know, and just didn't feel like answering me. She was a YOUNG vet. And it is a TEACHING hospital, after all. One of the older posts in these very Chronicles talked about a lady...

    Sorry. The question about, why is prognosis so dire in older horses.
  3. Yes, his lungs were ultrasounded. There were...

    Yes, his lungs were ultrasounded. There were lots of areas of air, some of which the vet identified as "gas from anerobes" yet the anerobic culture turned up negative. She failed to give any good...

    Yes that is a good question. I wonder if anybody has answers for that?
  5. Aspiration Pneumonia -- Long Term Survival Rates?

    I have a 23 year old gelding who was diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia on New Year's Day. The vet at the veterinary hospital gave him less than 1% odds of survival and felt I should put him down...

    Well, polo IS "English reining", nobody seems too confused by that. Maybe you should just try a better make of Western saddle -- I've never felt restricted from cueing for dressage in mine. Although...
  9. What does she matter what she wears and whether she would be eliminated in a dressage

    Everyone seems to be missing the major point that this horse is doing dressage beautifully -- 100% of the time, he is reliably straight, forward, rhythmic, balanced, carrying, engaged in the hocks,...

    No, you're not way off base, in fact you are right on.

    Keep "going to church" your own way (listening to the rustling in the grass) and let the other go. Lose the angst. You are not wrong, time has just gone on. (And I missing the dressing up in...
  11. Yes the spinning thing really works except

    I used the technique on a super-athletic somewhat snotty horse of mine and the very next thing he spooked at, all of a sudden, there we were, he was using it on me. :eek: Spinning like a champion...

    Get on the European E-Bay -- if I remember correctly, you go to the USA E-bay site and link to E-Bay UK -- a friend of mine from Germany turned me on to this. I got a fabulous hunt whip, barely...

    Yes, it is true you need to groom a horse well and often to get him to really shine BUT -- also feed flaxseed! It is guaranteed to really give the coat a bloom. It usually makes my horses dapple...

    I've had really good luck with Venice Turpentine. It's actually a blister, I think, some sort of an iodine/turpentine cross? Anyway, I smear it all over the soles of my Thoroughbred's feet, soles,...

    Don't think the fly masks with ears will help much. . .

    Ihave both kinds, and my houdini horse gets either off in equal time. I have just resigned myself to owning twice as many masks as I have horses, and retrieving the fallen ones whenever I am out...

  19. Hunting while "hurt"

    I have foxhunted while my lower left leg was partially paralyzed, post-brain-tumour-surgery. This didn't really hurt (until afterwards, that is), so I'm not really sure it qualifies to answer your...

    My experience with fear has been, it's true, in a way it's all in your mind, because your mind does control your body. I was fearless as a child, had the luck to have wonderful (Olympic-calibre)...
