    My 19 year old arabian all of a sudden developed swelling in all 4 legs from the cornet to the knee. This has been going on for months now… It only happens after exercise (and yes always above and beyond with the warm up and cool down process)! The swelling will usually start some time between...

    Okay so there's this horse I really adore and are looking at buying, but he tested positive in his right fore during the flexion test.

Giving it time to cool down and rest? It wouldn't be anything hard only popping over some trotting poles and a small cross bar :) Would...

    I think my Shetland Pony mare may be in foal. I'm not sure though, because I don't think she has been with any stallions. I know there are a few geldings who are currently int he pen with her, and a few months ago there was an older colt who wasn't a gelding yet in there, so that's why I am a...
