    Skinny TB, HELP!

    Those sound very large feeds! Have you weighed them? It may be that you are giving her too much in one go and as a result she isn't able to feel the benefit of much of the feed.

    Alltech Lifeforce ???

    I got x3 months worth on special offer and would say it made absolutely no difference at all to my horse, and I think it was a waste of money!

    Elvis Vetting update - WWYD?

    Heartbreaking as it is for you right now, I think you've had a lucky escape too. I've had a couple of failed vettings when horse hunting, which I was gutted about at the time, but I think I then found better horses (who were sound!). Good luck in your search.

    Calmers for work while on box rest?

    I've always been sceptical about calmers, but on my vet's advice I used Prokalm for when my boy (also known as the duracell bunny!) had to be on boxrest and I am staggered at how effective it is. It is pricey, but I've claimed for it on my insurance.

    Laser treatment for ligament injury

    On the recommendation of my osteo, I have hired an equilaser to use on our horse who has recently suffered a trauma injury to the medial branch of her suspensory. Has anyone any experience of using laser treatment on an injury like this? Would I best to use it before or after her ten minutes...

    Horse constantly hops in to canter and won't trot?

    Hopping behind during an upwards canter transition is a classic symptom of hind lameness. I would get the vet to take a look at your horse.

    These would be the questions that I'd be asking, too. Personally I wouldn't risk it when you still don't know the cause of the lameness.

    syringe calmers - Oxyshot & Mark Todd not available, what else?

    Have you tried Prokalm? I used it when I first started ridden work with a horse who had been on boxrest for months and months, and it certainly helped take the edge off her (she's a sharp horse anyway!)

    Aoife Clark - any news on her horse?

    He passed me between huntsman's close and the quarry and smacked the horse who looked completely exhausted - I've never seen Armada look like that before. I was very uncomfortable seeing him pushing the horse on and I'm not surprised he was disciplined for it. I would have welcomed the officials...

    Best turnout rugs?

    Rambo - I wouldn't buy anything else. Their supremes are the best rugs on the market, imo.

    Lincoln pine tar spray will clear it up.

    Help with training a stubborn horse to load in a horse box!

    Could this be relevant? What did you go to the vet for? Could she have been uncomfortable when it came to coming home?

    Opinions on standing on horses.

    In the context of such photos being used in for sale adverts, to make the horse look sensible, it screams low end dealer to me.
