    Miss Emma looks nice Joe, and I really like those bridles that snap over a halter. Sure wish I had seen that site before I bought him a wintec...although I like the Wintec one, I wanted to use a halter under the briddle for trails. You really can't do that with a typical english bridle because the noseband.

    Thanks everyone...just came back from the barn. A have a bigger problem right now. My draft cross has pulled his tendon off his fetlock. He is VERY lame on right hind. Barely made it across the pasture. Not sure if I should wrap it & keep him up until Monday, or what...

    If you think he's pulled a tendon, you would be doing the right thing by hosing it with cool water and wrapping with quilted pads and standing bandages (not polos) to keep the swelling down, and keeping him confined. For the first few days, lots of hosing will help the odds of recovery. If he will tolerate it, icing it (for I think 20 minutes is what is recommended) every few hours is helpful.

    Tendon injuries are tricky - bad ones can have very little swelling, and vice versa. Generally it's a good idea to get a vet to look at it.

    Thanks, yes, I will take him to the vet Monday. There is not much chance of recovery though, his fetlocks have been in bad shape for a while. I have held off putting him down, but it is time now I believe. I hope I didn't wait to long. I knew he was worse than I thought last week when he nearly fell over after his trim. I could not feel any heat, but there is a gap at the back of his fetlock.

    I only have 3 stalls and have not been feeding him inside the past couple of weeks, since the incident with the farrier. I have been worried if he falls down I would not be able to get him up. His main vet is 40 miles down the road.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I am heading back out there now...

    Thank you Ladytrails. I took him to the vet Monday, bless his heart he was so eager to go...he loved to ride in the trailer...

    The vet said he could only make him comfortable for a while, so I decided that it was more humane to let him go & not make him struggle. It is very hard, we have been thru a lot for a long time together. We knew each other well. He will be missed...

    Baby says goodbye
