    To clarify, in my roarer's case the surgery did not kill him, the aftercare did.

    Roaring is more common in large than small horses. The dressage world is filled with big warmbloods.

    That's terrible, what happened? Was it hospital care or home care?

    My entire post is not quoted. My vet was not speaking about roaring in the above instance. I had a horse with a partially collapsed trachea, that I thought was roaring until I had her scoped. He was talking about the partially collapsed trachea not being uncommon in higher level dressage horses.

    I had the surgery at a clinic rather then a hospital. I did not trust the vet/clinic owner for the surgery so brought in the retired head of surgery for Davis. I thought the clinic would be safe for after care and I wanted to be able to visit my horse daily which would not have been possible working in SF. I had gone and checked things before the surgery and it came recommended by two friends who had had surgeries there. The aftercare was beyond negligent and my horse developed salmonella. I tried everything for 11 days. In hindsight I would have had him euthanized on the second day. That clinic closed and that vet moved to another state.

    I can report having a successful outcome following surgery for my horse but prefer to share details with you via PM because I have experienced some "personal attacks" and would prefer to keep private details private............

    Also, not sure if anyone noted this but when discussing options with New Bolten in 2001 they noted that "roaring" issues are COMMON in MOST draft breeds and large warmbloods......my recollection of the explanation given was......something about the long distance the nerves that control the epiglottis(?) had to travel up and across to the other side of the neck.....???......I posted information on this topic years ago........(see above)
