    The 1st few rides are SO critical and as I've done it before and have nothing to prove, I'd rather a younger "crash test dummy" do it. I prefer to be the person on the ground because I know the...

    Your vet needs to follow through with the blocks. I just went through this with one of mine, I don't know why she would've stopped at the foot, that makes NO sense whatsoever. Even if she had found...

    Notice my use of the word "usually". ;-) If you're an existing customer, that could change things and not all companies are created equal. Again, playing the odds.

    Yes, this is the same horse. Thank GOD I didn't spring for the bone scan because even if the bone scan finally did what it's supposed to do (and that's a maybe in my book) and the hock-ish area lit...

    Given that you just bought the horse and may not know his entire background/care, I'd insure him, at least for a year or two. My money would bet on the fact you'd need the major medical before the...

    Further diagnostics, as mentioned, really are needed at this point. I wouldn't necessarily say the roached back is a deal breaker, though, I've known a few FEI horses with that particular...

    Yes...but ('cause I know where you're going with it) said horsie was re-ultrasounded after MRI findings and vet said he still couldn't "really" visualize it. He said we would NOT be able to use U/S...
  8. Suspensory Desmopathy/Tear Diagnosed by MRI, not found on U/S, anyone??

    That's pretty much the question. Vets involved don't give % of tear or anything measurable, other than saying "it's tiny". Horse blocked sound to the hock/suspensory area, nothing of note found on...

    I'd like to know what she does out in the pasture? Lots of running/bucking/playing? Also, what does your ground work consist of? I can't imagine you're getting on a "dominant" mare without w/t/c...

    Ask your vet, maybe he'll wish to take a blood sample. Ignore the idiots at your barn lol.

    Why does the vet think that area lit up and why is it not a "problem". I've *never* heard of that area lighting up, so strange! (but very interesting!)

    What part of his head lit up? That is fascinating! The fact that said horsie has "almost kissing spine" is not necessarily a big deal. Because the bone scan did not light up, it most likely is not...

    Yes, you're right. When I typed "I do", I meant simply that I trim/bang the end of the tail. I do that for all the reasons mentioned above, not for growth.

    Wouldn't the protein come up if fed with say, timothy pellets, though? I'll have to check my Vit/Min sup for the other levels. I wish you could get all that w/o the fillers....:-/

    I do. I keep them a little shorter than most folks do as well. I like a banged tail just above the fetlocks....fwiw.

    I hardly think you'd need to inject it. I had a weanling that was ridiculously low. I fed Platinum Performance Vitamin E, monitored the levels via blood tests and it came up pretty darn fast. Do...

    I'm curious now regarding the comments that a multi-vitamin can't begin to "compete" with a ration balancer. JB, should I start another thread about this or say it ain't so...:-/.....???

    Seriously, nothing? What about these freaky fractures that were supposed to occur with its use? Anything?

    TILDREN revisited

    I'm curious as to how all your horses are doing now....5-7 years later? Did it help? Did it last? What body part was it supposed to "fix"?

    I just want to make the comment that yes, soft tissue injuries can/will show up on the soft tissue phase IF they are imaged. A bone scan is not "just a bone scan". It's just that you need to narrow...

    Why doesn't she just soak the hay pellets, add a vit/min with the flax and call it good? I'm sure I'm just missing something.... :-/

    I feel your pain, I really do. If it's boney, you'll most likely find it. If soft tissue is the main problem, that will be more difficult. Keep us posted, would be wonderful to hear the outcome. ...
