    Deep breath. https://www.horseforum.com/horse-tack-equipment/where-do-you-start-when-looking-815239/ This is my previous thread about saddles. We have a 16 year old curly mare. She was fine for the first 3 weeks we had her but then my husband got a bee up his... well, big guy decided to ride...

    Hi everyone I did a pre-purchase exam on a 3 year old mare that I really liked. She has 90 days of riding with a reining/cowhorse trainer. She has just enough sass that I enjoy riding and being around her. She has nice hard black feet and seems sound in that regard. She trotted out sound on a...

    Hello, about a week ago I had to take an emergency trip to the vets. My horse, in the middle of eating his grain, stopped eating, stretched his neck out and started pawing then coughing and then he went down and started rolling. I call the vet and he said it sounded like colic or choking and...

    My Horse is Drooling? Please Help!! My horse has started drooling all of a sudden. Sometimes it's clear and sometimes its white and foam looking. It comes out long and string looking from her mouth. I've looked in her mouth and can't see anything that would be causing it. She is due for a...

    So I've had this mare for around 2 weeks now and her legs and face have 5 cent coin size weepy scabs on them. She does itch her face on the fence, and uses her hoofs to itch her back legs. Any ideas what this could be? Our other horse doesn't get this, and the horse we had before this didn't...

    Hi all, my mare has been having some issues lately with stiffness in her back (which really presented itself on her right hind). A reputable physiotherapist came out to see her, and said she was stiff in her lower back (rump area)...she proceeded to manipulate her to loosen everything as much...

    Yesterday I bought a horse, sight unseen. She came out of a bad situation and my first concern was getting her out of it. Once she arrived she was a little better looking than I had previously thought. But, she had an open wound that had aluspray partially over it. I inquired about it and the...

    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...
  9. Stallions and Broodmares
    I have decided to breed my mare through AI, I have a few questions first though. 1. How long does the whole process usually take? 2. Can you breed more than once from the same shipment? 3. How soon will your vet know if your mare has taken? 4. Do you have any tips or tricks the help make sure...

    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...

    Hello, I wanted to know what exactly I have to pay for every year in vet bills, farrier, and the dentist and if y'all could specify what I have to pay for. Sorry if this doesn't make sense it's kinda hard to explain, ahah! :smile:

    So here's another question: A horse where I board and I ride sometimes often coughs when ridden. He is 10 years old and has been doing this for years according to his owner. It's at the beginning of the ride once he trots or canters. Since I get to ride him I tried doing really slow warm-ups...

    One of our Hancock brood mares is sick and the vets can't figure out what it could be. If she decides to let her legs give the vet doesn't think she'll make it. She is roughly 8 mo pregnant. I found her in the pasture Friday, 3/13/15, morning with the following symptoms: -Standing still -...

    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...
