    Thanks everyone. All Trot, that sounds hopeful. Runwayz, yes, I can feel the ergot on the other hind, much smaller. This is a bigger lump just above it. I've put her in a smaller pasture so she can't...
  2. Sesamoid injury? Thoughts? Prognosis?

    My mare turned up off on a hind after our last 50 mile ride. It was our second weekend in a row, but she felt the best she has all season. It was the hilliest ride we've done yet this year, but she...

    Easyboot glove rubs -- solutions?

    I have just started using Easyboot gloves on my mare this season -- so far done six or seven 50s and they have been working great -- they stay on in mud or sand, she moves great in them, much happier...

    When your horse talks...

    Listen!!!

    As endurance riders, we all know about "know your horse!" and listen to them and all that jazz, and I have to say that when I started out doing endurance about 7 years ago, "Know your...

    Well I did not end up going because my horse was still getting over her abscess. Otherwise I probably would have at least tried it. But Friday when we would have been hauling it was 105 at the ride...

    Wish it was that easy, but if I never did a ride when I was miserable I wouldn't have finished many rides. I'm afraid I am one of those demented endurance riders that finds some perverse pleasure in...

    At what temp would you skip a ride?

    Ok, here's the deal. We live in northwestern WI, so we don't get a lot of extreme heat. Yes, we have days in 90's and lots of humidity, but few enough that we can generally just avoid riding then. I...

    Oh so happy for you!! Love to hear about people going up to 50's and loving it!! And all A's is fantastic! Isn't it great when something isn't nearly as big a deal as you are afraid it will be?...

    I was in your shoes this summer, wondering when it was okay to start a new horse in 50's. I've done 50's for several years, but that horse had done them her whole life. I had an Arab mare who did one...

    Okay. I'm not looking for a fight. I realize that I was emotional when I wrote last night's post because I was upset that he had hurt my Mom's favorite horse. When I get emotional I tend to sound a...

    I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. To explain a little more fully, my Mom and I are very experienced in working with horses. My Mom grew up with Arabians, including stallions, and I have...

    dealing with aggressive horse

    Okay, so this is a kind of long story. I bought a horse late this summer, a big, flashy Arab gelding, perfect conformation, incredible athlete, that I hoped would be my next endurance horse. He was...

    My Mom and I use a portable corral with plastic step in posts and two strands of fairly thick white electric rope. We have a battery that we can hook up, but the experienced horses really don't need...

    I have heard that alfalfa is good for ulcers, but I am worried that it is a richer hay and she definitely does not need that. Right now she gets a nice, mature third cutting grass hay with an...

    horse with ulcers and weight problems

    This is kind of a long story and I haven't been here in a while, I usually just lurk over on the endurance page, but I'm kind of desperate to help this horse. To start from the beginning, I have this...

    This horse has just been loose in a pasture her whole life, never had much done to her. We had a horse before that was kept in a stall most of her life and was a bad pawer, but I don't know where...

    She can't wear a blanket because she isn't just the bottom of the totem pole, she's not even on the pole. We tried putting a blanket on just one horse many years back in the winter and it was run...

    She's getting plenty of high quality hay. All our other horses are fluffy balloons. Yeah, I had a vague thought of oil and beetpulp. It's just so hard to use when it's -20F outside. We put her in a...
  19. Maintaining weight without horse going nuts?

    Okay, so we got a new horse in September, a scrawny 5yr. old Arab mare. Little horse, barely 15 hh. We put some nice weight on her before winter, which up here is quite brutal. Now, we are just...

    Up until this May the answer would have been a very resounding "no". The first two years I competed her she never took a lame step. I competed about 500 miles per year, and they were some pretty...

    Thanks Prudence. She's even more gorgeous in action -- her trot has a TON of suspension, so it's a bit of work to ride. She can't do much better than 10-11 mph. at a trot, but it's so big and...

    Those who guessed the Anglo are right. I've only had her for three years, but she's been doing this sport for a long time and has about 2000 miles on her. She's a terrific 50 mile horse, mostly top...

    Thanks. :) Cheeks is a looker all right, and she knows it too. She got two top tens in halter at the Egyptian Event as a three yr. old. Of course that does her no good in endurance, but she is...
