    I was in the same boat until this year & finally bellied up and got a zero-turn commercial mower. Wish I done it years ago! In one season I can see a big difference in the amount of weeds in the...

    It's such a difficult time of year with flies, hard ground, dew, etc! Magic Cushion does help for sore feet--but it won't stay in as a real barrier outside for any length of time.

    Has there been any more recent bloodwork done? Things can change quickly in seniors, might be good to recheck liver, kidney values, etc. now and as others have said, probably for Cushings. Starting...

    I believe it's actually the perioplic ring not the coronary band, that gets whitish and swollen looking in wet conditions (like cuticles).

    There are lots of threads on COTH about neck threadworms (onchocerca), which can make for very itchy necks with welts and belly sores/sweet itch. Worth running a search here and/or googling to see if...

    Have you considered doing a bone scan (nuclear scintigraphy)? It might be able to give you a bigger picture (literally) of what's going on. Hope things get better for you guys soon!

    Very cute guy, but the dip from the coronary to mid-foot sure looks like there may have been some sinking/rotation (laminitis). He might be a lot more comfortable & a different looking horse overall...
