  1. Maybe check out a ski shop or an. Outdoor sports place? I will ask my friend who has climbed Everest a few times, see if he can recommend something.
  2. Bumping up....would like to know as well
  3. Looks like Right front is currently abscessing on back of heel bulbs?
  4. Will be posting a new trim pic hopefully tomorrow!!!!
  5. I totally understand where you are coming from!!! So glad to hear you were able to finally ride, that is awesome! LOL, sometimes its the little things that give you the most pleasure. Prayers for you that he stays healthy! What a handsome beast
  6. Sent you pm!
  7. OK, here's my update post....neener neener (lol) Trimmer doesn't clear quarters, doesn't really pull toes back, puts bevel on back of heels to get them back further. They have trimmed twice now, and I just can't keep my hands off afterwards...They came out prepared to put on leather pads and casts for all her pathology but changed mind when saw her and how much progress I had made since last visit. I think their 4 wk schedule is much too long when dealing with these feet. When they left, I was told to apply bevel to heels about every 2 wks, call if I had any questions or needed them to come back out. Also said there is a shoulder disparity, and that RF needs to be raised, possibly could do a wedge to raise heel up (after cutting way down to help stimulate proper pressure/growth) and take wedge down as heel grew in correctly...but that wasn't something I wanted to do anyway. Lets treat the correct foot...the one that is TOO LONG. And the hinds are another story. After lots of questions by me on how to deal with it, they finally realized they were being misled by what they were seeing. They had to go back and redo the hinds after measuring as they had missed it too. So now I will be addressing the wall heights by measuring CG. Hope that will start some long awaited transformation. I know, still a LONG way to go, but the way they are approaching it...I don't see a decent foot happening for over a year or more at their rate. Left Front - kinda small Right Front and PS - don't try to take pictures of a horse who is not squared up, and who is on uneven ground and tell me about limb differences. Get on a flat surface. I am a detail oriented person.... Actual hoof pics in album http://s198.photobucket.com/albums/aa288/Jumps4Lu/Lassie%20Hooves%20%20Sept%2023%202012/
  8. Yes, you are thinking of "Ramey's goo" One tube of antibiotic cream and one tube of athletes foot cream mixed together. White Lightning can be purchased for about $15 for a bottle, mix it with vinegar and then soak. Oxine is another one you can mix with vinegar and soak. Clean Trax is another. If you look around the web, I think I have found it for about $16 on someones website (a barefoot trimmer) Hope that helps?
  9. No, I haven't. I will see if I can get in touch with them this weekend. The feed store told me they didn't have an NSC value since it was an expensive test....is that true? I mean, they make their own mix and supply a lot of barns. My current barn uses their mix but has bran added to it as well (but also feeds other feeds).
  10. Thought this was interesting and a helpful visual http://blog.easycareinc.com/blog/bootmeister-natural-hoof-care-tips/heels

  13. Current barn was just put up for sale last month, so that plus 3 medical issues in 3 weeks indicates a change is really needed. New barn will have approx. 6-7 hours turnout M-F. They also grow their own hay (I think she said they have it tested, but am not sure). Downfall...is they feed a local mix that is a 12% sweet feed. When I called feed store, they didn't know NSC value, but said it would be close to a Purina Omolene 100. What I found online says its 40% !!!!! Not sure if its the Straatman version or CheckRMix. This is Straatman's 12%: For maintenance of horses Guaranteed Analysis Crude Protein, not less than 12.00% Crude Fat, not less that 2.75% Crude Fiber, not more than 15.00% Calcium, min 1.00% Calcium, max 1.50% Phosphorus, min 0.50% Copper, min 21ppm Selenium, min 0.45ppm Zinc, min 95ppm Vitamin A 3,000IU/lb Ingredients Processed grain by-products, grain products, forage products, magnesium mica, calcium carbonate, molasses products, salt, grain products, plant protein products, vitamin A supplement, ethylemediamine dihydruidide, maganous oxide, copper, sulfate, zinc oxide, vitamin E supplement, vitamin D supplement, ferrous sulfate, sodium selenite, cobalt carbonate. Feeding Directions Feed with hay and/or pasture to make a complete ration for horses. Feed mature horses at a rate of ? to 1 pound per 100 pounds body weight, along with 1 pound to 1 ? pound hay or equivalent pasture per 100 pounds body weight daily. After observing your horse for a period of time, you may want to increase of decrease the daily feeding of Straatmann Country Pride Sweet 12 to keep your horse in the desired condition. The amount required will vary, depending on the quality and amount of hay or pasture consumed. That is the only feed they use. She said that most horses do well with the 2 flakes of hay in Am and 2 flakes in PM, plus a 1/2 of 3qt scoop at each feeding of the sweetfeed. Now I am worrying that this will not be a good thing. This place is 12 miles further out, and more expensive. A place where I can do pasture board is an hour and 15 minutes away, and I know she keeps a good eye on her horses, as she breeds and sells TB's/sport horses. The distance / gas was the deciding issue on that place - I would be lucky to get out there once a week, plus about $28 for gas round trip (diesel truck) I am just so frustrated right now with this. I sold my 'good' smooth older horse, who my daughter adored (due to financial difficulties and time). Now my mare is being a freight train, not listening when being ridden, crow hopping when asked to canter and just being a butt head, and I sure don't want to put my daughter on her if she is acting up. (This has gone on since I moved her down to the stall with a run 2.5 months ago). I am worried my daughter is going to hate horses since my mare is much bouncier than old horse, and I feel like I never get to ride since horse is always having an issue. I have a 'new' barefoot trimmer that has offered to take care of horse's hooves if she can do a case study. I was not impressed with the first time she trimmed and casted...but am willing to give it a go if I don't have to pay for it. I think they follow the equine podiatry train of thought. I guess main thing is...what do I do about the huge jump in NSC level? She is currently on Strategy GX, and gets a total of 6lbs a day, and 4 flakes grass hay. Please help... EDITED because I wasn't in my right mind when I posted
