I was curious about the coggins because just yesterday i learned that coggins are good for 6 months to 1 year.. and then to hear 3 years baffled me.
"The state of Maine requires a valid Coggins test every three years, however certain other destinations require proof of a valid 6 month test."
I got that from here here
. Just scroll basically all the way down to the bottom.
Though i would personally get it done every year just to be on the safe side.
HAF, i'm sorry you found out you were lied to. That's got to be really hard, but that shouldn't change how you look at Chance. She's still your baby :)
I probably wouldn't jump her if your vet or farrier told you to lightly work her. Jumping will just add to the stress on her front feet. I'd stick to 90% walking and 10% trotting.. if that.
The vet told Tom and me to start lightly riding Gem.. as much as i want to walk for a few minutes and trot him, i hold back because if i go to fast, it might hurt him.. and i rather have a horse i can get on and walk, than not being able to get on a horse at all....
