    BO becomes obsessed with the game of handball, spends all of her time playing it, and allows the barn to fall into a state of disrepair.

    I'd ask one of the other customers if they would be willing to contact their farrier on your behalf to make the introduction (or ask BO to do it). I do this for people sometimes if they are in a...

    I own a gelding like this, and have owned/ridden plenty of mares (and geldings) that are not like this. It's not a mare thing.

    I'm short on time, so I'll be brief. She doesn't trust her rider. ...

    For what it's worth, they don't always act sick or lethargic when they have cellulitis. And they don't always have a fever either (and definitely won't have a fever when on banamine). Is it sore to...

    Maybe I missed it, but is he being treated for cellulitis? Because this sounds like cellulitis.

    Actually, I think you'd be surprised how quickly the horses adapt to an early morning rider. I ride my horse super early every day before work, and have done so for years. Within a few days of me...

    I will just say that there are many horses out there that would never be able to get over that atmosphere, no matter how long they lived there. Lots of horses can cope with lots of things, but not...

    These things happen. I would not even give it a second thought. I'd just pull him out the next day and expect that things will be fine and that he will have forgotten the prior incident. Horses...

    Uh, there are no rules against providing contact information for other riders in the area. In the case of the clinics I organize, everyone knows everyone. It is a "closed" group of people that are...

    Hi OP, I'm late to the party but thought I'd chime in because I regularly organize clinics (2 a month) at the barn where I board. Clinic fees are generally non-refundable. I say so up front in all...

    My life became much less stressful when I just started doing all of the blanket changes for my horse. He runs so cold even I have trouble believing he needs to be blanketed as heavily as he does! ...

    I think she looks off on the left hind traveling to the right. But it's hard to tell because she is very inverted, racey, and braced through her back. That can make any horse look funky. Ridden...

    So, I did some troubleshooting. Last night and this morning, I put Surpass on the right stifle. He just about killed me when I touched the right stifle, but was okay with me touching the left one. ...

    Beau - I honestly have never made it a habit to x-ray every time on a horse that has been x-rayed previously. This horse is probably due for a new set of x-rays though.

    Stifle is not remarkable...

    Good question - forgot to mention it. The vet palpated him last week and said his back felt really great, supple, and well-muscled. I routinely palpate his back while tacking up, and all has seemed...

    So, I got on him this morning and walked for 15 minutes. Then trotted a couple laps each way. He was reluctant to pick up the trot and really felt braced/backed off. I hopped off and stuck him on...

    Yep, he will get an ultrasound if this doesn't resolve by Christmas. Interestingly, I had both hind suspensories ultrasounded last year because of a mystery lameness and they were both clean. The...

    Oh, and it's not a joint infection from the injections. I'm familiar with those. He's got no heat or swelling anywhere and he's not the kind of lame you see with a septic joint.

    Thanks guys...I'm leaning more and more toward stifle soreness from waiting too long on hocks. It helps to know that your hind suspensory horse didn't warm out of his lameness, Victorious. This...

    Part of me actually thinks it could be an abscess. The mud has just been awful, and he has had abscesses in the right hind hoof on several prior occasions. Sometimes they didn't respond to hoof...
  25. How long for hock injections to take effect? Or what else could this be?

    I know I've seen other threads on this, but can't find them. I've had my horse's hocks injected before, and he usually shows almost complete improvement within a week.

    That said, this time he was...
