    Supremely unimpressed. I will not be watching, but I will be laughing. "lol"

    The film producers really should have approached actual barrel racers who have good reputations and are somewhat better...

    Wow, I must have been doing it wrong rehabbing maneaters all these years.

    I've never had to (or accidentally) flip, hobble, unusually tie up, use sketchy equipment, spur up, jerk on, run to the...

    I would be ashamed to use personality-altering drugs on any of my show horses.

    *Ashamed as a rider... as a competitor... and as a trainer.*

    You know, in my world, which seems to have...

    "She/he doesn't try to kill me."

    LOL. Pleasant, cute, obnoxious, responsive, arrogant, light/sensitive, aware, not spooking when I say "That's enough." I love horses who get jealous and come...

    I've got a bunch. :) And was intending to update all my pics on several horses in the next week or two... but I'm on dial-up and could only do low-res photo uploads right now. If you want hi-res I...

    I'm leaning towards Panomec, since Bimectin had that scandal a few years ago... has Panomec had any scandals?! hahaha.

    Picking it up today and will be dosing Wisher/Lukas. Poor Wisher is just a...

    Thanks EqTrainer. I have been managing him this way too, always careful to leave lots of hoofwall when I trim him, but still in keeping his toes knocked back.

    I'm looking at dewormers available...

    Of course, today he is definitely on the verge of acute laminitis because he escaped into the grassiest paddock on the property for a couple hours. :( GameReady seems to have gotten the pulse/heat...

    No kidding! I was meaning to ask too--- have you seen any hoof improvements on your bunch, Eq Trainer? Especially those with recurrent mild laminitis in spite of drylotting and low/zero-starch?

    I...

    Hey ladies (and gents). This thread sure was an eye-opener and my kudos to those who have itch-free horses now!

    Just wow on those contracted tendon babies, too. I trim an aged gelding who has...

    I skipped through.

    I agree, there is no such thing as a "four beat lope". A lope is a THREE BEAT gait... therefore if a horse has four beats, it is not loping, period.

    I don't ride WP horses...

    There is a pad I use from "Lamicell"... but I don't know if it comes in english styles, just western and barrel racing. It basically has a suede top, a neoprene bottom, and in between are two panels...

    Sounds like there is more than to problem than just thrush. Stonebruises, gimpy feet, and now thrush that pops up in only two or three days of wet weather... to me, that means someone has likely been...

    Is it also possible that the riders ride similarly? (Ie, over-flexing, framing too-tight, false-frame without real movement from behind, bouncing in the sitting trots, etc?)

    While my first thought...

    Ohhhh yeaaah.

    I will twist myself into some pretty pretzelly positions just to keep the horse comfortable while I'm trimming. They cooperate much better!

    My yearling filly decided to try and...

    I own one and my mom's a sales rep in Ontario. Love the machine, although it's a pain to drag in and out of the barn every day- kinda heavy.

    The pain relief is serious- I used it on myself when a...

    Awful trim. Done by a hack-job, literally.

    It really depends on the horse and the environment. As a rule, I only remove whatever scrapes off with "barely there" pressure of the tip of the hoofknife. It's often not much, more in dry weather....

    There are horses who are just plain lazy. I own a few. The difference is how you train them. A lazy horse can still learn to be "hot" off your legs (without spurring the bejeezus and sometimes even...
