    When I had to store my tack for about 7 months, I cleaned it well, smeared it with the leather conditioner Ko-Cho-Line, wrapped it in towels and then pulled large garbage bags over it. The saddles I...

    I echo the comment about the dapples! Very cute mare. Good luck with her.

    Actually, I'm not convinced that beer doesn't do anything (although whether it helps with sweating I have no idea).

    Alcohol is a mild anti-inflammatory, beer has B vitamins and active yeast...

    Agreed with previous poster who said you need to measure the horse's feet and go with the boots that match the measurements. Some boots are sized for horses with almost perfectly round hooves, and...

    The one thing I would worry about would be intestinal parasites. I've read that MSM has some effect on worms, so it's possible that there might be a connection to colic because of the (possible)...

    Although you say that he is up to date on dental and vet stuff, it would be worthwhile to have the vet come out to look at him. It's possible that there's a cracked tooth, or an oral abscess or...

    Has he always done this or is this new behavior?

    Another possibility is lyme disease. Lyme disease often makes horses very touch-sensitive.

    I've worn/used the ankle safe for years and never had an issue with it getting hung up on branches or vines. I think it's great.

    My first thought is that most ponies wouldn't take a medium saddle; they'd take something closer to a wide.

    Second thought is, given where he's getting sore, it may be that the shape of the tree...

    It's true that there's no research (AFAIK) about supplements and prevention of arthritis.

    MSM *might* be a good addition, though and it's pretty cheap as these things go. My vet also said that the...

    Cavallos might be a really good choice; you could get the pads that go in them as well. They are without a doubt the easiest to put on and take off.

    Easyboot has a lot of new models and so you may...

    You've definitely gotten a lot of great advice from people who are very experienced with horses and OTTBs in particular.

    It would be worth your while to double-check saddle fit. If the saddle fit...

    I'm not a farrier (or trimmer) either, but in my very inexpert opinion, putting shoes on those hooves would be impossible.

    I can't understand why a farrier/trimmer would leave so much toe on the...

    Add some flax seed to his diet; that will help protect against reactions to bug bites. If his skin still seems too sensitive, add some MSM as well.

    Good luck.

    It sounds as though if the horse has flares that develop between trims, then there's something wrong with the trims.

    I know it was just a function of autocorrect, but I liked the idea of an "armature" job on your toenails.

    Made me think of a stegosaurus or some such.:D

    It's possible, since bute isn't providing any benefit, that it's not the arthritis that is causing the problem.

    I would begin exploring other issues, such as lyme disease or problems with the...
