    Default lameness exam/diagnostics on an OTTB - clinic?

    Sending my 8yo Tb for a thorough lameness exam and probable diagnostics. I can either go to Spurlock's in Lovettsville, or Valley Equine near Charles Town. Which do you prefer and why? I used Spurlock about 15 years ago for nuclear scintigraphy on my old gelding, and liked them. I keep hearing so many friends and such speak highly of Valley Equine as well.

    Opinions please!

    Here's the thing...Both are excellent and experianced with thoroughbreds who have raced. Spurlocks will have more experiance with horses who are now enjoying Sports horse careers and how any old race wear n tear will impact their future soundness...JMTC...
