    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...

    Hey people, this isn't the most pleasant topic but I noticed my stallion was having a problem retracting his penis into his sheath. It doesn't appear to be another overly significant and doesn't seem to cause him discomfort as he'll let me check to see if anything is obvious. I've done searches...

    Hello all! My gelding Whiskey threw a shoe overnight last night. I was out at about 10:30 pm and he was fine. This morning he was lame with a thrown shoe and a swollen fetlock. He is not putting weight on it. I rubbed some liniment on it this morning and wrapped some vet wrap just to keep it...

    My fourteen year old quarter horse mare has a swollen left back leg. She's not limping, not tender. I loped her in the round pen and asked her for sharp turns and she did them without a problem. There's no heat and I can squeeze all down her legs without a reaction. When she trots the leg seems...

    So I haven't posted on here in about a year but I really need some advice. I went out to feed my horse on Saturday and his hind legs were both extremely swollen. I couldn't find any cuts or scratches and he's not the least bit lame, just slightly stiff. And he's only swollen from the hock down...

    So just recently my horse Dolly got a bit of a cut on her hock. The cut itself wasn't deep (or bad for that matter) but her hock was quite swollen. I treated it every day by hosing it down for 15 mins with cold water, and cleaned out the cut. The swelling went down just fine in a couple days...

    We got my geldings neck injected about a day ago due to some minor arthritis in his neck. Woke up this morning to see four large swollen bumps along his neck on both sides, one is quite messy the others are just large and swollen. His neck is very stiff. Is this normal? Should I worry about the...

    Hello. I am wondering if anyone has any information re. personal experiences managing cellulitis in an older horse? I have a 30 yr old Mare with cellulitis in her right rear leg, it's very swollen. How long does it take for swelling to go down once on antibiotics and anti-inflammatories? She was...

    Hello, this morning when I went out to feed, I noticed my pony's eye was a little runny and a little swollen. Yesterday we took it easy and worked on lunging becuase we are preparing for a possible hunter pace this fall. The work is about 5 days a week with medium difficulty. Some poles, small...

    Today when I went to feed the boys I noticed Blue's sheath was very swollen(I'll post pics at the end). I admit it has been long time since I cleaned it. So I decided to clean it while he was eating. It was disgusting! I got so much crud out and I somehow managed to locate his penis(even tho he...

    Okay so my horse was diagnosed with Scratches aka mud fever on Monday the 21st of March, and he was put on 1 gm bute paste daily, and two scoops of Uniprim as an antibiotic. I also am scrubbing his legs with betadine as the vet recommended. It's not really getting better... :( He's not lame and...

    My gelding developed an odd swollen large lump right at the top of his scapula. This happened overnight after a non-riding day. This is not a bug bite and is not a saddle issue. The swelling is not showing signs of heat and is not changing in size. It is very firm... seems more like a deep...

    This morning I found Jack's pastern noticeably swollen. I felt the area and although it was producing some heat it wasn't significantly hotter then his left (healthier one). I just got Jack about a month ago and I have put him on Adequan due to his steeplechase and fox hunting career (the...
