No I haven't hear of that, but I had tens therapy on myself and it did a world of good. It's actually kinda funny because I was just talking to the hubby about why this wasn't a common therapy for horses.

I definatly agree that most race horses are started and galloped WAY to early. Leading to alot of issues down the road. But just the same as other disciplines. I have a reining futurity horse that wasn't started until after she turned two, people can't believe that I would waste my money on such a "late start." Most reiners/cutters/pleasure riders (really any western competetive rider) starts their horses at a year and half old. Two is plenty early enough, too early still. ( I think futurities should be held off until a horse is 4 so you can let them mature one more year before riding them)

How come your girl needs surgery? A result of galloping or something else?

It's funny how horses understand when we need a cuddle. When I'm having one of those days when all I feel like doing is crying I go out and get some cuddles from my best friends. They are amazing creatures and I really couldn't leave without them.

Oh some how I may have miss comunicated somthing..
My gelding Tiny had surgery when he was younger due to some bony growths on his stifles.

Candi is great. No surgery is needed on anything. Sorry if I miscomunicated something.
I had a series of X-Rays done before i brought her up here even tho my Dad was her previous owner I had an extensive vet check with x-rays etc done.
You just never know what might be foound. She came back great with everything. A bit underweight.

Actually I was looking at her today and I can already see some weight gain and muscle tone. This is all good!

You know I am pretty sure that there has been some type of therapy for horses for a while now that is somewhat similar to a "Tens" unit. I too have used a tens for various different injuries.

The Auscope is a bit different tho. If you want I can put some info about in the other post I made and others can read it!

One thing with Candi is boy does she get sweaty quickly! Today i had her in the round pen for 20 minutes, maybe less and she got sweaty in the first 5
Then I end up with her in the cross ties and she gets the towel dry massage lol
At least is was warmer today with no wind and after a bit I was able to go into the sun and walk her out.

It is funny because both of my horses have the different coloring around their nose. Candi has it around her eye and she also gets red highlights in her tail! lol Ty on the other hand has a black mane and tail.

We just cut her mane yesterday. It did have a ton of red highlights in it but now it is all short!
Interestingly she looks almost black but then you see the red highlights in certain places. Tiny my other horse changes a lot. He has dapples that really stand out when he is in the sun.

I went to the ranch early this morning to just drop of Starbucks Latte's for all the staff. They all work so hard I thought it would be a nice thing to do to thank them. I will try and post more pics later of Candi and Ty later today.
she looks identical to my tb mare tricky
