    I tried to event my appendix... she just really doesn't like to jump (took longer than it should have for her to get that through my head.) So, we're being DQs together.

    I have only ever used the velcro ones for my mare's bedsores, which she thankfully doesn't get now that she's not living in the sand. I used the Davis rubber boots, as I've found they are durable but...

    I am really quite shocked that a rep said this. The manufacturers, including Charles Owen, all say that helmets should be replaced after a fall. Not because they want you to buy a new helmet, but...

    Is the bucket raised or on the ground as well? With a horse that old I would also wonder about neck arthritis.

    I second the recommendations to try tacking her up with friends nearby and to try hay in front of her as well. Horses have three behavioral needs: access to space, access to forage, access to...

    As others have said, it's a personal thing. I've done it enough times I know exactly how I need to handle it and I need to be there. I'm dry till the vet drives up the driveway, try to hold it...

    I also have a road ID with two tags, one interactive, one not. Why? Because while USEA wanted the interactive version (at first) Pony Club would only allow them if you had all your info on them. All...

    Why? Because zipping a boot on and off is far easier than pulling them on and off and requires no extra equipment (who remembers losing their boot pulls?) I would far rather deal with the occasional...

    No one ever told me how long to stay off. However, I think it was 4-6 weeks, but more so because I had to wait for my ribs to heal.

    I started with the Pony Club record book, now I keep a bunch of word documents based off the headings in it. It includes pictures of various states of wound healing in the extra vet visits, which is...
