    Sigh....... First not "all", second we know what grain overload does to a horse. That's the extreme scenario, but milder versions of a disease process also almost always exist! So you get highly...

    Yes, but this assumes the heels have not been trimmed down enough to prevent more mechanical damage because it is high heels that causes the CB rotation in the first place. Whenever a laminitic horse...

    No , I am saying this not the researchers because that's what I experience in the field

    First, animals that are kept in immaculate conditions also tend to get their hooves cleaned regularly so...

    Because sole can easily be over thinned by trimming. You can scrape some lose material off and trim anything that would stand above the hoofwall plane that could cause pressure down enough, but it...

    Good luck finding some because I don't think this is even on the radar of many equine researchers. But they have found that horses that often do get thrush are in impeccable environments and well...

    Of course he does - all I am saying is that he needs everything he needs ASAP! :) There's a reason why the the Equine Yahoo Cushings group call it the "emergency diet" when a horse IS laminitic,...

    I disagree - as much as possible, necessary chages should happen simultanously :) You would not wait in a laminitic case to make immediate diet chnages, or would you? This horse may in fact be...

    Excuse me, but diet is often a factor in hoof health that should not be ignored and far from misleading, along with proper trimming and adequate movement! It is one of the most misunderstood and...

    Thrush is usually a sign of unhealthy hooves. Health comes from the inside out. Incorrect diet (high in NSCs / missing nutrients) makes the hooves weaker and more susceptible to invading pathogens. ...

    Well great, sounds like perhaps teachings have changed :) BTW, let them know that tendons attach to muscles, and muscles that can be released as well if they are worked on at the same time!

    Why do you even post if you have nothing constructive to add?? Really does not make you look good, but I guess that's your objective!:)

    The leg that is in the lead in the canter is NOT the dominant front leg, nor does it initiate the canter. The leg that initiates the canter is the diagonal hind and in right sided horses this would...

    Hmmm, keep in mind too that QH are prone to EPSM or PSSM. This may also play a factor when it comes to fibrotic myopathy.

    First I wonder are we talking real fibrotic myopathy, which cause is unknown and degenerative or just scar tissue from a muscle injury? If it is just scar tissue, the horse should heal and move on :)...

    Not quite, keep observing :)

    It gives hooves a chance to heal from the nail holes and effects of the shoes. How would you feel if you had to wear shoes 24/7 and you did not really evolve to do that? :) Every human LOVES to take...

    Yawn.....this hoof used to almost have 3 " heels! This is work in progress, as I hope you would agree that you cannot take high heels down all at once.

    In addition, this hoof cannot tolerate...
