    So. This is going to sound like a really dumb, probably obvious question- if you know it. So here goes. Has anyone ever heard of... Sternum breaks? or something similar? in TWH's? Ya know... all that exaggerated high stepping? Pretty sure if i tried that, i would most definitely knee myself in...

    Shameless plug for survey answers here :p I'm part of a team at Cambridge University investigating lameness, and we're running a survey looking at it effects on horse owners. It only takes 2 minutes, and you can exit at any point. If you could spare some time to give it a shot, we would be...

    Hello, all! I've been in the market for a new horse for some time, but really just taking my time to find a horse that suits me. I'd been interested in this OTTB mare at a nearby rescue, and finally, I got to meet her and see if I wanted to move on with the adoption process. I made it quite...

    Hi everyone, A few days ago I noticed a little lump on my mare's front right leg, the leg that has predisposed problems. At first I was very concerned. The first day it was very hot, but she showed no lameness so I used a "wait and see" approach, knowing it wasn't one of the bigger...

    I own a 14 year old Trakhener gelding, and he had an injury to his fetlock last year that left him lame for several months. After his time off, hes been used for casual light riding and has been great. He's recently developed a medium sized lump on his fetlock where the injury occurred last...
  10. Member Journals
    Hello everyone and anyone. After reading through (and loving) many journals I thought I may as well start my own, and create a place to share/vent/laugh/cry about all things to come! I guess a little back ground to start with: I'm 25 now, I started riding when I was around 4-5 years old, my...

    Hi all, I have just found out a couple of days ago that my 6 year old show-jumper has a severe rupture of his deep digital flexor tendon which has also ruptured into his tendon sheath. He's incredibly lame on it (10/10) and has been at Liphook Hospital having numerous scans as vets cannot...

    My gelding just had a bout with colic. I called the vet out three days ago and she said he had an impacted bowel. We had to inject him with Banamine a few times, and there was lots and lots of walking. I spent a lot of time with him, and checked on him at least once every few hours for days...

    I looked at a 6 yr old OTTB that had a minor tendon tear in her left front. It healed, has been ultrasounded, and she is cleared for everything but high eventing. I want her for a barrel horse. Would you guys risk buying her?

    Last Wednesday I noticed that my mares hind left leg was swollen and warm. She was babying it and would rest it anytime she stood still. I talked to my boss and after seeing a video of her etc she told me to give her previcoc 2x a day until sunday night, along with cold hosing her leg. I took...

    I have a 16.3hh Gelding who sustained a 40% tear in his front left tendon whilst racing on the track. I took him back home where we secured the tendon back with silicon and gave him a 8 months to recuperate. The injury healed beautifully and almost four years later (Today) he hasn't had one...

    Horse arrived home from a traveling 24+ hours home from a show in good spirits. I noticed that his left front looks quite weird, but it is not hot or sensitive. It looks to me to be the lateral digital extensor, but I'm not sure. He trots sound, but it looks significantly different and...

    Welp. I'm afraid i'm going to be down and out for a tad bit and after 9593 days of life I have officially broken my first bone. I suppose I would of rather had this happen earlier rather than later when I have a job and responsibilities but it is what it is. I'm going to be quite sedentary for...
