    LOL. How can I give you too many compliements if your horse obviously looks unhappy? Your op showed that you don't truely understand arthritus, so we were trying to educate you. I don't think she looks bad, you obviously are treating her well, trying to fatten her up and don't ride the crap out of her.

    She isnt unhappy. Thanks you for saying I treat her well. I understand arthritis bc I have it and so do my parents. Please don't assume stupid crap.

    Well... I'd have to ask how the owner's before you diagnosed her with Arthrithis. If it was done by a vet, there's no use in arguing because, well, they're vets and we're not, right?
    If they've owned her for forever and have gradually watched her gaits and behaviour change, then there may be something there even without a vet's diagnosis.
    Arthiritis doesn't always show itself in such fashionable ways as lameness. Stiffness can be arthritis, which can gradually work out. I have a 22 year old Arabian mare who most days runs around better than my two year olds. However, there's a small degree of stiffness in her hocks and pelvis that, even though she's LAME per say, I know she's got arthritis, just not to a severe degree.
    There's a lot of varying degrees and symptoms in horses, which can't be compared to that of a human. The only thing I'll say is maybe it'd be best to have a vet come out and see her.

    On the other hand, what a beautiful head she has! Fattened up, she's going to be heck of a looker. :)
    Best of luck with her!

    Erin, that is a very childish attitude. No one was being rude to you, just trying to alert you to what they see. There is no reason to delete this thread.
