    Agree with all of the above posters; love the show (and there were some terrific episodes last season, some of them "movie quality" in terms of tense plotting and production values), but it's become...

    My filly (3 at the end of June) is barely 15.0-15.1 at the butt, and I'm afraid to measure her at the withers :( She has grown *verrrrrry* slowly, and I am worried that I'll end up with a shrimp! She...

    One of my students bred her 19 year old maiden TB mare :eek: to A Fine Romance, she took on the first insemination with fresh cooled.

    Of course this student is one of these rare people who seems...

    Thanks, Invested. I know how hard is was for you to lose Tonka :cry:, and that's painful and heartbreaking to hear re: Toby...So far Callie is holding up okay, though I do worry about her when we...

    Thanks, folks :) Getting another dog is not an option, unfortunately, so I'm just going to have to allow her to grieve and try to nurture her as much as possible--while providing her with positive...

    Agree, definitely very much the skill of the practitioner ;) Interesting article linked above, I hope lameness vets are reading The Horse!

    I think the point they were making is that nerve blocks are an "inexact science" in terms of locating the origin of pain.

    IME, it's usually lameness exam: including watching the horse move,...

    All interesting points, cheerio, and I agree--I do think it would be a good idea for vets to let clients know there is a "level of ambiguity" inherent to doing blocks. They are certainly *very*...

    Cool, thanks :) I've owned 10 horses over 40 odd years, and two of them have been black. The first black was my second pony; I was only 8 so didn't make the "equipment buying decisions" back...
