    Darn cute! I wish my horse did that... He uses his powers for evil instead and just throws things at pasture mates.

    He gets 2 flakes alfalfa and 2 3-way per day. If I have the opportunity to move him he can go onto grass hay, but until then those are my only options. Unfortunately, I can't feed him as much as he...

    Well, my guy's mystery lameness diagnosis turned out to be a moderate injury to his medial collateral ligament...

    We didn't MRI, just xrayed and ultrasounded, so not sure if there is damage that...

    I went the barefoot route for now and am going to re-evaluate in a week- any thoughts on special shoes with multiple breakover points? (from what I understood). I'm willing to do shoes but my vet...

    It's actually the right stifle, so the vets think (unfortunately) that it's totally independent.

    Waiting around for a pastern ultrasound and foot xray now, oh joy... They are doing their best to...
  15. Unexplained RF lameness? (UD with diagnosis)

    As some of you might know from my other thread, I have a warmblood (just turned 7) who is going in for stifle surgery on Wednesday. However, while he has been laid up the past month he seems to have...

    I found it best with my guy to anticipate when he was going to run out of steam/motivation/interest/what have you and end the ride slightly before that (always on a good note). It gets irritating for...

    I agree, I've had a similar diagnosis thrown my way regarding my wb when he was a youngster (5)- later xrays/re-evaluation have basically revealed it to be a bogus diagnosis.
