    Do the MRI - that is by no means jumping the gun and if you have insurance to cover it, it's silly not to do it. It's the only way to know for sure what's going on. Don't do the "let's try this... Or...

    If you get the Andis it comes with a DVD showing you how to clip. It's super easy - I clipped how they showed (shorter strokes) and have never had a clipper line/mark problem.

    My Northwind sheet is the only blanket I own that hasn't ripped. I haven't used Pessoa or Smartpaks ultimate one to compare, but the Northwind material is VERY tough.

    The statement from the vet that ranitidine is useless is crazy - mine and many other horses have greatly benefited from it for maintainence. I wouldn't rule it out.

    Ok - was thinking miserable = some serious illness going on. Every horse's ulcer symptoms are different. Hopefully the ranitidine will help him out. It's helped mine a lot!
