  1. Is it possible to have the flaps on a Passier cut...

    Is it possible to have the flaps on a Passier cut down? I have a GG, and I love it, but the flaps are too long. Maybe I should look into that for myself!!

    FWIW, Passiers are all I own now due to...
  2. Thanks for asking rcloisonne. Nothing really new...

    Thanks for asking rcloisonne. Nothing really new to report. She seems to be holding up to the extra weight from the pregnancy fine. No further deterioration, but the suspensories on both hinds are...
  3. She was getting 2lbs of Essential K daily total. ...

    She was getting 2lbs of Essential K daily total. I have since switched to Kalm Performer.

    I'd like to know more about iron and equines as well, as well as DSLD in general. I'm always interested...
  4. I sort of suspect that many who breed...

    I sort of suspect that many who breed arabian/warmbloods are breeding to keep for themselves. Or, are small-time breeders who don't have a website or large internet presence. Lots of turning over...
  5. If someone was in the market for an...

    If someone was in the market for an arabian/warmblood cross, where would they look? I've checked the usual suspects (warmbloods for sale, dreamhorse, equine, googled for breeders) but didn't find a...
  6. Do slaughter houses actually turn away horses...

    Do slaughter houses actually turn away horses (other than grays or paints with lots of white)? Honest question...I truly don't know.
  7. Yeah, I just don't see any good ending to this. ...

    Yeah, I just don't see any good ending to this. I'd vote for legal seizure and then culling of the herd, but I'm sure there would be at least some public outcry (save the horses!). And they'd have...
  8. Good point cowgirljenn. The "enforcer"...

    Good point cowgirljenn. The "enforcer" presumably would be the probation officer, so once off probation, the animal collecting could and would begin again.

    Lady E, I would never intervene...
  9. Is there any good way to handle a large herd seizure/hoarder issue?

    Recently on a local horse related facebook group, there was a post about a local farm (stock breed...I don't want to give identifying details) that supposedly has in the neighborhood of 100 horses,...
  10. What a timely thread! Thanks SAcres, I'll be...

    What a timely thread! Thanks SAcres, I'll be checking this one for updates.

    I'm also thinking of dragging my 22yo TB out of retirement. I trashed my knee and had surgery back in November, and...
  11. Senior Equines...how old is your competitor?

    Just a fun and curious thread. I'd love to hear from anyone who has an aged horse as their dressage partner.

    (I consider aged to be 20 or over, but anything in the late teens on up, feel free to...
  12. OP, so sorry for your losses. :'( My oldest...

    OP, so sorry for your losses. :'(

    My oldest horse had a very bad reaction one year (we can only guess it was the rabies vaccine, hard to tell because all were given in neck that year). Since...
  13. With a quick learner and a reasonably good pro,...

    With a quick learner and a reasonably good pro, 15-20 rides sounds reasonable to me. If he's turned out 24/7 his fitness level won't be as low as you may think. You could also help the progress...
  14. Can't answer for NorCal but I'd want to know if...

    Can't answer for NorCal but I'd want to know if there was any tearing or abnormal scarring to the ligament, which the US would show. Xray obviously would show bone issues (spurs, arthritic changes,...
  15. I'd probably go ahead and have it ultrasounded...

    I'd probably go ahead and have it ultrasounded (if you have a good vet with portable ultrasound, capable of relaibly reading the results...sad that I have to make that disclaimer). But, I'm probably...
  16. Annual Smith - Worthington sale...worth the trip?

    It's a 5-6 hour trek for me. How much of a discount have you found there in the past? I did talk to the wonderfully helpful people at the store and they let me know that there are very deep...
  17. An iron panel is all that was run so far, JB. ...

    An iron panel is all that was run so far, JB. I've been supplementing uckele poly copper because copper and zinc are iron antagonists. (Well, actually I supplement poly copper and poly zinc for my...
  18. rcloisonne, I have to agree that the stuides and...

    rcloisonne, I have to agree that the stuides and Dr. Kellon's website made me feel like she was setting me up to sell me snake oil. My interest in the iron test was mostly because my last mare's...
  19. I do plan to re-run the ferritin test after...

    I do plan to re-run the ferritin test after making some efforts to reduce the ferritin to see if they worked. In light of the DSLD diagnosis and the mare's history, it seems to me that the...
  20. Oh how I wish she had just gotten into too much...

    Oh how I wish she had just gotten into too much Guinness.

    sdlbredfan, did you run bloodwork to check liver enzymes after your horse came back with elevated serum ferritin?

    I really feel the...
  21. Thanks for the link to her website. I sent her...

    Thanks for the link to her website. I sent her an email requesting her fees and I'd like to do a consultation.

    This is such a frustrating disease. :'(
  22. Bloodwork results - high serum ferritin (DSLD horse). Next steps?

    Just a quick re-cap for those who missed the prior post:

    I have a mare in foal (due June) who was recently diagnosed with DSLD. Diagnosis and symptoms appeared after breeding unfortunately, and...
  23. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. My dansko's...

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. My dansko's are the professional. I can't imagine there being a less stable version! :eek:

    The negative heel earth shoes look interesting. I may see if I...
  24. Thanks for the tips guys. Why do I think I...

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    Why do I think I need arch support? Well, maybe I don't but my hip/knee/back all tell me they are happier with a higher arched shoe.

    Yes, I do feel ripped off by the...
  25. Need shoe help. Dansko's are going to kill me but I need arch support!

    I went to the walking company and had the whole workup done. I bought 2 pairs of Danskos ($$$$$ eeek!). The arch support is wonderful. They feel great on my feet. But I keep twisting my ankles! ...
