    A couple of possibilities:

    You don't indicate how much turnout she's getting or what it's like. It may be that she'd do better with more turnout. Also, if she is not going out with other horses...

    Yes, I'm buying their joint supplement for my horse. It seems great and I have no complaints.

    I have an oval head, and have worn both Charles Owens and Uvex helmets.

    I'd have the vet out again. It sounds like there is still some pain, something possibly left over from the cellulitis (?). It would be worth it, even if the vet finds nothing, for your peace of mind.

    You really need a vet to look at it. It could be that she has a systematic infection that needs oral antibiotic (or a shot of antibiotics), as well as banamine to bring the swelling down.

    Please...

    Very thoughtful post, OP.

    As you probably already intuit, the disappearing smartpaks (regardless of how they disappear) is probably just the tip of the iceberg. There are likely many other issues...

    How often does it happen that rodents will go after a horse's fetlock or pastern? Would they be more likely to do it if the horse already had a scab, say from scratches?

    Teeth marks? Eek.

    Pelham Saddlery, Rick's saddlery, Trumbull Mountain are all on-line and carry a wide range of saddles. I'd go to one of those places before going to ebay, largely because reputable online shops...

    Most Balance saddles are treed now (actually I think all of them are). I've had two Balance saddles, with trees, and liked them both. The Balance idea of saddle-fitting is different in that all their...

    You need JB to weigh in.

    merrygoround asks a good question about whether you've already wormed the pony (perhaps when you first got her), and if so, what did you use?

    I'd be a bit wary about...

    The new GPA helmet, linked to above on the Smartpak site, looks interesting, but WOW! at a price that I'm betting few will plunk down. (List price of $800, discounted to 748).

    I've been using a...

    Yes, I'd agree. I bought a LeMieux pad last fall, and even with shipping, given how relatively strong the dollar is, the price was quite reasonable.

    It's a great pad, too.

    It could easily be the case that when she went to the training barn, the trainer and rider assumed she knew certain things that she didn't know (in terms of cues, lead changes, etc.), so she became...

    You might try a baucher french link. Maybe not the preferred bit for the hunter ring, but you could school in it and swap out for the show.

    A lot of horses that are fussy with their mouths like a...

    If I were you I'd move sooner rather than later. The mare could come into heat without you even knowing it, and everyone is right: either she will get bred or she will get injured as the two boys...

    Yes, get the vet to pull a blood sample and have the Cornell test run for lyme disease. The test itself will cost a little over $100, but it is worth it because it's the most reliable test out there....

    The Nutrena blog agrees that selenium levels listed on horse feed labels are required by the FDA. In other words, the blog seems to be saying, the labeling is required by the FDA, not necessarily the...

    Regardless of what it says on the website, I think you now know that your horse's skin reacts badly to it when it is used under a wrap on the leg. And right now, what it sounds like you have is an...

    Call a vet, cold hose the leg (or simple ice pack on the leg) for 20 minutes or so.

    Take the horse's temperature as well. You could be dealing with a systemic infection.

    If the vet can't get...

    Thanks for this thread. I really needed a new dandy brush, and I have just ordered the Amazone.

    And then, I couldn't resist buying the Diva. Just because.

    Thinking about it, I also think that...

    It's easier to wash the wool pad than to wash a sheepskin pad, because the sheepskin is leather, and water tends to cause leather to stiffen over time. Once it's stiff it's liable to crack.

    Pads...

    In addition to the suggestions above, it's worthwhile to consider encysted strongyles. Has the horse been de-wormed with moxidectin (Quest or Quest Plus) some time in the last 6 months or so? If not,...
