    Be VERY careful about putting a tender-footed horse out on gravel that he's forced to walk over. That's setting him up for abscessing and/or laminitis. Make the gravel - and make it pea - optional,...

    Free choice is not the same as "all you can eat buffet". It means "available (nearly) all the time". That could be a restricted 15lb, or it could be as much as the horse will stuff into himself, 30,...

    I assume that means you have the tubes and can pull blood yourself? If so, then just get those to your vet.

    You can do a blood and urine analysis if you want to look at various mineral levels -...

    I would be doing something more to see what's going on in the foot. You might be looking at collateral ligament damage

    The concern is valid. It's not just "restricting eating", it's restricting eating high sugar forage. Lower sugar calories can be made up elsewhere if necessary - more hay, more of a low sugar...

    If you're going to split vaccines it doesn't help much to just pull out Rabies separately if you're then going to come back with EEE, WEE, WNV, flu, rhino, and tetanus at the same time.

    I have one horse who has white hairs from 2 different stitched areas. He's just special. IME some horses do that easily.

    While that's generally a good idea, it's not something I'd do with a coming 2yo who, as the OP described, is very butt high. At that growth phase, it's often about all they can do to stay upright...

    If there are stitches still there, typically vets don't want you doing anything to it. Ask your vet - most likely s/he'll say "leave it alone".

    Beyond that, once the stitches are out, keep the...

    I've never seen what is generally considered rabicano to not include at least some minimal white at the top of the tail.

    Without that white, it's considered to be something else, some Sabino most...

    That said - can't help, the pictures are not remotely good enough to judge any conformation by :(

    It's possible the bone was also bruised, but that ET runs right down the front so wouldn't escape trauma from a head-on blow. Icing is still a good idea at this point.

    If it is indeed feasible, yes, buy your own TC Sr. It's a great feed.

    That said, if Legends Performance pellet (not textured!) is a more feasible option, you could go with that as well. It's nice...

    A lump on the front of a cannon bone tells me it's likely a bruised extensor tendon, and if so, while it might take a good while, will likely go away. I would be icing it for a while, 20-30 minutes...

    Rabicano can be really really minimal. My WB I think is a very minimal rab - just a few white hairs at the top of his tail, and seasonal white hairs in his flanks.
