  2. Strange lameness and not eating grain correlated?

    My TB gelding seems to be prone to thrush, but I have never had a horse like this before! Every time it crops up I treat aggressively, get rid of it, and then if I stop treating preventatively it...
  4. Is there any way to prevent fading without a fly sheet?
