    Hi there and sorry about such a generic question, but we are rather desperate; I’m originally from Germany but since German Google was not very helpful, I figured that it would be best to diversify and ask for help in the Horseforum community. Our 17 year-old horse has been lame for...

    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 Horse Forum, This is my first post and I came here looking for answers I have been unable to find. I am a relatively inexperienced horse owner, and just recently experienced/induced one of the biggest fears I have related to keeping and riding horses. I was en route to have my first...

    Cole is a 16-year-old gelding at my grandparents' farm. He's aggressive, but it's also a reaction to pain as well. My grandparents couldn't find what was wrong by themselves so they dismissed it as arthritis. I want him to see a vet, but he tries to bite you if you try to brush him, or pet him...

    Regretting not taking any photos, but have put a reminder in my phone to do so when I reach the barn tomorrow. Long story short my gelding was lame Thursday in his front left. I was worried it was an issue with his hooves, as he's off and on battled cracks up his toes. After feeling around for...

    I have a 2 1/2 year old grade (Chincoteague pony x TWH) gelding who has come up lame for the first time ever today. I can feel some heat on the inside of his right front leg at the knee joint. I applied some liniment gel, stalled him and called the vet. I'm still waiting on a call back to...

    My 17 year old, 13hh overweight pony (368 kg) was diagnosed with cushings this Thursday. She has a high count of over 700. She is now on half a tablet, I'm not sure what the tablet is called, but it begins with a P. Could someone answer some of my questions please? I want to do what's best for...

    Powerful hind leg lameness every morning Three months ago I discovered that my horse had a lameness in the left hind leg. Something had happened during the night, or in the pasture the day before. Out of the stables the horse was moving as usuall, I rode it for 10 days after this event. The...

    The issue that has just arisen with my horse is when he goes into a fast trot and transition to canter it takes a lot of work on my part to get him to go into the speed I'm asking. Usually he goes into the canter nice and easy. Now when I ask he really refuses and trots fast but looks off. Seems...

    Posting for a friend who has a show on Sunday! On Tuesday her horse came up suddenly lame while she was riding. This horse was fine one minute, and limping the next. I wasn't there when it happened, but apparently my coach started checking out the right leg. It was weird, because there was no...

    My 12.2hh pony keeps going lame in trot. But one day he will be able to trot fine and not pull lame at all, but then the next day, he will be either slightly lame or quite badly lame. We checked his feet and they are stone cold. He is slightly on the fat size but we are keeping him in most days...

    Hi :) My 6 year old gelding has been lame for 6 months and has shown little to no improvement. He was slightly off at the jog one day, but worked out of it fairly quickly. Later that week, he went lame on his left front. The whole time he has been lame it has only shown up when tracking left at...
  13. New to Horses
    Hey everyone, I'm coming back to horses after an 8 year stint in L.A. And I need help. My parents "kept" my horses "for me" after I got married. I was able to visit them a grand total of 2 times during the first 8 years of my marriage, the last being about 6 years ago. Now that I've moved back...

    About two months ago my 17 year old APHA mare became suddenly lame in her RF foot/leg. She was very sore all of a sudden, held her foot pointed and only walked very slowly. There was some minor heat around her foot and up to the knee, no visible swelling. The BO said to give her some bute for a...

    Hello again hoof people! Here we have a horse bought by my friend earlier this week - 17yo quarter horse that has foundered. No radiographs sorry. SO we've begun fixing it, toes were already brought back, so I've lowered the heel a smidge, dug quite a bit of bar out today which really seemed to...

    Hi, for the past month my horse (8 year old TB, barefoot, seriously good doer) has had on and off lameness which is sometimes pretty bad and other times not so bad. Last week he fell lame and it's really bad, he's limping and finds it hard to walk and he walks really really slowly. We got our...

    I have a QH that is 5y/o and he's probably one of the best horses I've ever worked with.. except he has *very* tender feet. He has a very mild case of club foot (it's so mild that until you look very closely at his feet, they look normal) and overall, his feet suck. The hoof walls have irregular...

    My gelding has been having laminitis issues (was recently diagnosed with Cushings after suddenly coming up dead lame). He has always been barefoot with excellent feet (I would not be surprised if he has never had shoes). My vet recommended shoes with pads during the summer for the trails. Her...

    Whats the best thing to do for lame horses?! My mare seems to have gone lame, the lameness is in either her front right or her back left. What should I do to get rid of it? Supplements, exercises? etc. We had a vet come out and they prescribed cortisone but someone in my barn seemed to have...

    I've owned my 16.1hh skewbald mare Summer for about 5 year now. She has been lame for 3-4 of these years. After x-rays and nerve blocks and whatever else you could imagine and that could burn a hole in my pocket the vets came up with nothing and said give her 6 month off. 2 year later there...
