I was in the lead...

    From reading everything yesterday it seems the "if you don't pay up I will shoot your horse" is not in the actual livery contract it is something that liveries are told verbally....but even so If a YO said this to me I would run for the hills

    Hornet sting allergic reaction. Skin now sloughing off

    My lad had a bad casting accident when he was a four year old and the vet was convinced that the mix of a kind of pressure sore, stress and a severe tying up (from we think the struggle) caused him to sweat serum and then like yours his skin bubbled up and came off. We used Green Clay (lots of...
