Then wouldn't that mean that you would be as much to blame as the "stupid vet"?

Maybe I'm missing something here..

I think it just means she was frustrated when she got conflicting answers. It is easy to get tense when you are concerned for the health of your horse. Just IMHO. Better to be overly concerned than not concerned enough!

Dressage...yea...the vet would be to blame for not giving me straight forward answers and confusing me....

But the ultimate blame would be mine, because It would have been up to me to find a different vet who will tell it like it is....and be proactive about HELPING horse owners who are genuinely concerned about the welfare of their horses with the answers and advice they need.

There's always other vets out there....and I am shopping for a new one. Because she is not offering the support and advice that I am seeking. My next vet clinic will deal SPECIFICALLY with horses. I have two in mind. I will choose one, and set up a exam and consultation .....

Bsms, you are exactly right!!!

Love the draft she looks great just my kind of horse. I do think there is a couple of pounds floating around but if she is not in hard work or it is spring grass one would expect a couple of pounds to spare. On the other hand if you are going into winter then she is in good condition for the season change.

The vet. I understand your feelings. I now won't take my horse to a vet unless that vet owns and rides a horse. The one that castrates dogs just does not do it for me at all. An emergency, any vet will do as my horse comes before my feelings on the vets ability. However horses for courses, most medical practioners specialise and I use that as a measure when selecting a vet. Mine is 80 miles from my home but good at what he does.

Love your horses.
