    Default PPE today! (Update from AHH no PPE again!?)

    After a nice discussion about the topic, SO decided to give the vet a call and set up a PPE for the future horse.

    PPE is today at 11:00am, and considering it's Friday the 13th, we're nervous! (Not to mention SO's sister put her heart dog to sleep exactly one year ago today...)

    Horse is a coming 3 year old dark bay (with a star) QH mare. She only has 12 rides on her at this point. She's a bit chubby, and has VERY little muscling. Her sire and dam are on the farm. (I havent been there, so cant comment on them, although I hear theyre both pretty overweight, but nice lookin horses. The sire was apparently a great reining horse).

    Anywho, just coming here for some jingles and luck that the horse has no problems and flies through the vet check!

    Good luck with the PPE, I hope it goes well and gives you a clear idea of you should pass or buy!

    I hate when there is a distinct maybe/grey area.

    Well, SO texted and said that the horse "passed" with flying colors. Only problem the vet could find was slightly flat soles. So i'm very excited! He's getting the vet to go ahead and remove wolf teeth, and maybe float. Then he's gonna bring her on home!

    FWIW for 11 years I had an otherwise very sound horse who had rather flat soles. We've got hard ground out here in NoCal, so, just during the summer, I did have him shod with flat pads for a little protection. In the 11 years I owned him, he was always fine, except for two instances of stone bruises bef. I realized I needed to protect him a bit in the summer. He lived to be 27 and other than age-related stuff, he was sound to the end. Something to consider.

    Sandy, thats great to know. I was actually just researching flat soles. This mare is very sound currently and will not be ridden on hard ground or gravel.
