    Have read that gelding early tends to make the foal grow taller and that the growth plates in legs close later than if not gelded. So maybe there is something to this. Now I'm curious also.

    Agree w/ replacing SafeChoice with TC Sr. I'd also knock off the free choice alfalfa and switch to a grass mix hay during the day and maybe during the night also. Some orchard grass hay can be VERY...

    How is he today? Sometimes you only need to do a tiny, tiny bit of tweaking
    til his whole hoof is more "normal". Maybe next time don't do quite as much at a time.

    Oh, this brings back old memories. My son, around 5, was caught by me bringing his 33" pony out the kitchen door. Not wanting to scold him too quickly, I asked where and why they had been. His...

    Sassy, while you're in "waiting for the hoof to grow and change" mode, maybe this a good time to starty trimming your other horse you said was very overgrown.

    Sometimes when we start seeing...

    Mark your calendar so that every 4-5 days you need to examine his hooves in
    minute detail. Maybe even map them again. Because you WILL see changes
    and in 2 weeks he will NEED to be tweaked.

    I feed Omega Horseshine which has stabilized flax in it. It's never gone bad on me here in hot, humid Fl. Plus my horses look better on this than regular ground flax. I think there's some extra...

    Might be time to get a good vet out to get some fluids into her. If she's not drinking they can go downhill fast.

    Some think Strangles is a simple disease, and they always heal up fine. Not...

    In my experience navicular syndrome is a catchall phrase used to denote "heel pain" of unknown origin. I've seen many cases where poor
    trimming and unbalanced hooves, mainly high heels, cause the...

    You might put a Wanted Ad on the Lexington, Ky. area Craigslist, as some of the bigger farms have resident nursemare they might loan out.

    Spazzing out is pretty normal when they have a good day and feet are feeling better. I think they have to learn to take it easy or they get sore.

    This is why you need to be careful with using...

    Wish my horses had strong healthy frogs like these hinds. Soft, sandy soil does not build frogs. darn.

    Hinds should be a snap for you- heels back and down, trim bars. ...

    You're moving in the right direction, I won't repeat what JB said, which was all helpful, but yes you're on the right track!

    Sassy, PM your email to me. I have some good photos and drawings that will help explain some things much better. I realize it's very difficult to understand without pics or or descriptive diagrams.

    Orthene has warning on the label "Hazardous to Humans and Domestic Animals".

    I use it in some areas but not in horse pastures. It will also kill chickens and they WILL eat it.

    I've read that rye grass is a no-no for previously foundered and/or IR horses.
