    Quite a few of you saw my last thread on these two, titled "New Rescues - Help!" ( New Rescues - Help! ) and gave me some great advice for how best to rehab these two girls. Today we got them outside and I was able to take a few "before" pictures of them. For anyone who didn't see the last...

    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...

    Almost two years ago my mare came up lame after a run. It didn't seem serious so my parents knowing Nothing of horses didn't want to take her to the vet. I started working with other horses and I need her. Now, her foal being seven months old, I've began to work my mare. I haven't done to...

    Hey guys, So long story short, a fat horse and a stirrup free two-point did my knees in.

    Hey guys, today I went out to see a horse that I was hoping to turn into an eventer. He's a 13 y.o. OTTB, and raced until he was 9. He had a total of 80 starts. :shock: He was purchased by a company that buys TB's to rehome them, and pinned as suited for flatwork and pleasure riding, due to...

    I am looking for some hope in the recovery of my Spotted Saddle horse who has been struggling in his fight with pneumonia for 11 days now. He means the world to me and I do not want to lose him.

    In April, I bought a 2 yr old paint. I would just like to share his recovery. When we first bought him, he was small, scraggly, and skinny. He looked all mangy. He was underweight and ugh it just made me mad! Well I bought him some weight gain supplement powder, oats, and sweet feed and began...
