  4. Hoof Problems

    IME, one typical and usual, easy to fix cause of constant abscessing is often farriers leaving the bars too overgrown and laid over which traps gunk in there. Constant bar and heel abscesses are what you usually see in that situation. Not saying this is the reason, but all similarities in the horse keeping environment including the hoof care provider could be a potential cause. Pictures are needed to know more.
  5. Interesting.....

    Ive been watching these and IMO this is a step ahead of a boot but not as far as glue on or nail on rubber shoes. Pros would be they are breathable, less surface covering the foot, less aptitude to make the foot overly wet, no rubbing of boots moving around. Can be left on longer without ill effects. Can be adjusted in attachment position daily if needed on the velcro as you trim the foot or tweek the foots balance during the cycle. Eventually, the tape position will need to be moved, but I can see it being able to be left in place awhile white moving exactly where the clips hook in to it. Cons are probably going to be price, attachment failures, and unfriendly environment possibility issues id say. My big questions at this point are How much, and how strong are those clips and velcro? I think these would be vastly superior in rehab applications than boots. I love boots but they have some annoying limitations and inconveniences.
  6. I declawed one cat when I was young and she was already an adult and I had to do it to live in a rental. Never again. She was sensitive footed for months and months. I also observed strange litter behaviors and I can tell she suffered. With products like this available for pennies. Never ever again.
  7. Where Are The Mods/admin?

    Yeah im not so much up for coming here real often when A. a good 80% of the people I liked to talk to and became good friends with got banned or left over controversial bannings. B. Many of the bannings were clearly malicious and instigated by you know who C. you know who worked for this site and they kept allowing her to do it. I dont think they gave a rats behind about us. Didnt feel very welcome here. I do think they wanted this place much more dead for some reason. Maybe they saw a large super active BB as a liability and not an asset? IDK. But whatever the case, when 80% of the people you talk to leave and the boards stop having many, if any, new posts? Well, its time to move on to greener pastures I guess. Not because of any poster here, its just that home base we all used to gather at isn't so homey anymore and its pretty boring without much to talk about. Ive popped back in here and there and posted a few posts but there just isnt the amount of content that used to be here by FAR which means not alot to choose from that you might have something to post about. When you arent doing anything but logging on, seeing there isnt much and nothing to post about time and time again, you just kinda log off and forget to log back in for awhile.
  8. Oh wow GH, I just popped on here and see this! I am SO sorry! What a thing to do out of the blue. Been there myself also and its like a slap in the face. Im here to give you hugs and commiserate if you ever need to chat.
  9. Where Are The Mods/admin?

    I dont check in much anymore. This place is dead duck Dead. Nothing interesting any more going on. Nikki def killed it intentionally or not. I haven been here in months and there are like 3 to 5 posts in a few categories that have been updated. Many of the forums have no new posts at all. Facebook has lots of groups for different interests all ion one spot which is nice and content is ALWAYS moving lol. You just dont fall for click bait and keep your nose clean ;) I wish there was a way to make an active oldies horsecity group there. I have lots of general friends from HC there, but I know im missing people i really used to like to talk with from here. I miss the good old days
  10. So We Pulled A Carriage First Time Today.....

    That is one of the most gorgeous horses. I love him! I know you know the traces were too long already, but they should be shortened enough that the upper curve of the shaft rests in the saddle stirrup there. A couple notches actually it looks like. You almost lost the shaft completely out of the stirrup there in the video.
  11. Can we please sticky this mods? Would be GREATLY helpful. Please post any and all barefoot informational websites/ links to pertinant articals/ supplies/ case studies you can think of. Ill add them all to the top post and sort them if we get enough to need that. Also it would be good to have a few farrier supply sites. I dont think that conflicts with HC in any way and would be helpful as well to let us know the cheapest and best places to get things we need, medications, rasps, boots etc. Id like to put this all in one post. TIA! _________________________________________________________ Barefoot Hoof Trimming informational sites (most include case studies) One of the best informational sites IMO Pete Rameys Site Extremely good articals and information.

  12. Recipes For Thrush Treatment

    mix up some dawn and water in a spray bottle. Spray and scrub and spray to rinse. The soap can stay on. Ill scrub every day for a few days with an active untreated case and then maybe 2 or 3 times a week to keep it at bay if its gross outside.
  13. Recipes For Thrush Treatment

    Ya cant beat good old blue dawn for a good scrubbing clean now and then. Cheapest thrush remedy I have ever found.
  14. Looks silver to me. Silver dapple buckskin possibly with an overo gene with those legs and eyes.
  15. Oppinions On This Tool

    `Ive started using ELPO guidelines to get long toes back and breakover corrected the first trim in most cases. I find I get faster and better results. Ill leave the toe pillars long and strong for a few trims to get the toe back and the heels coming in straight. Then ill fix any issues with the pillars and quarters later. It seems to work pretty well. If the horses foot is trashed or too weak, I still take the toes back to proper breakover and cast them now a few rounds.
  16. Only when you choose to highlight news that bolsters your argument and not seek the other side. There are many cases of women (and children) defending against physically superior men via a firearm. They are often used in self defense or home defense even more so than gets reported. some fun links. Actually...a huge list of stuff....
  17. So....I sat my gun by the door and left it open just wondering if opportunity was all that was lacking to make it go crazy and kill people...and I watched it.... and watched it.....and watched it....for hours....days...weeks....months.......Its still there....hasnt moved. I dont think guns are the problem at all....Seems they need a force behind them willing to use them in some such deed. So that would be an "unstable and irrational human being judgement" problem, not a "gun" problem. So far my gun hasnt shown any homicidal tendencies on its own. Take away the guns ( except we ALL know that then every criminal in the US will have 40 of them and us none..that only punishes the responsible gun owners) and it will be cross bows and knives, then they will take those away and it will be stakes or rope to choke someone or so other such issue. Guns are the ONLY thing that equalize a 90 lb woman with a 250 lb attacker. Nothing else makes those two as equal with deadly force in an altercation.
  18. Any Experience With Keystone?

    It would be in their best interests to provide some video and photos on the site. Im just not motivated to go hunting for information that should be readily available if someone wants to sell me something. The only thing I am interested in so far is the claim that it repels moisture, callouses the foot and will work in wet areas. Sounds like a type of putty that solidifies to the shape of the sole (i hope) But it appears you have to use a shoe to hold it on.
  19. Any Experience With Keystone?

    How is this different than vettecs various products? I use that stuff all the time in varying patterns. Im just not getting anything from the website.
  20. Would Like Opinions On This Easy Shoe Product

    cant wait to try them personally. They look promising.
  21. Discomfort During Trims, Pain Management

    Bute for sure. Movement helps alot as im sure you know but at -30 there isnt much you can do, He is stiff and stoved up. Not much you can do but medicate him and try to make him not feel discomfort..
  22. Steampunk

    Something from Abney Park.
  23. True Faith

    I think you mean 1's and 0's .... but I get your jest.
  24. Steampunk

    try and try googling 1890's victorian and old west ladies blouse patterns. You may have to tweek them. 1890s and around that time western patterns will work in alot of cases.
  25. Spelling Names Differently Big Deal Or No?

    Lasagna! ;) i cant help it, I give pet names or shorten if I cant remember how to say or spell a name. Im dyslexic and odd spellings really mess with me. Do I get a pass? LOL, Even if I dont get a pass, i cant keep it straight anyway LOL. sooooo.... You'll just have to get over it ;) dyslexics of the world, UNTIE!
