    When you look at the stress put on the body of a performance horse vs that of a pasture puff, of course they are going to have more injuries - generally tendon, ligament and joint injuries. Things like nails punctures in the hoof has nothing to do with performance, its just unlucky.
    I guess its the same in people - an elite athlete is going to have more injuries than your average joe office worker that does no strenuous exercise.

    My horse is just like your horse lol. I've said this saying so many times around my horse now its not funny 'fix one thing, 3 more problems pop up.' and its true. Hope he gets better soon, muss finally finished healing and we went to bring him back into work 3 days ago and typically he suddenly for no reason became lame. -.-

    Thanks Tayz, Sadly - his one of those horses who get bored being in a stable for one night, this amount of time will definitely be interesting.

    Eh I agree with Kayty. Mudpie could be wrapped in bubble wrap in a padded stall and he would STILL find a way to get hurt. :P And he's only half Thoroughbred! XP

    Good luck with Mr. Chinga – I can fully sympathize.

    You take such good care of that horse. I am impressed. Makes me feel like a real lazy slob; I hardly do anything for Mac beyond brushing him and doing his feet a couple of times a week!

    I'm sure Mac loves you for it.

    Honestly - right now I feel quite bad, even though there was nothing that I could do to prevent it and now we're doing everything to make him better. It's so frustrating! If anyone has any tips to amuse himw while his not in work? I'm more then happy to hear them.
