This is great stuff! Marnie, what a good idea to take photos like this, bound to be a help to someone, there was a post somewhere on forum about numnahs and someone said that they didnt like polypads due to them slipping. Your photos prove the point very well!

I love this post!! I liek to learn anything vetinary, I wanted to be a vet but never made it so look up and learn as much as I can from home, internet and other horsey people.

Agreed on polypads, dont like them, my lab has the one that came with my tb as a comfy cushion in her bed, works on another level as my lab is called Polly and she loves sitting on her poly pad..... :/

Sorry, have only just seen your question! We never got a name or diagnosis or such, they came up and down a couple of times and then it just stopped. The vet just put it down to her growing, he wasn't overly concerned and as I say, it stopped after a month or two!

My horse last year when he had 4 month boxrest for a eye ulcer.

I do appologise for the amount of pics I have. I had to take one every day for 4 months an I cant decide which are the best ones to show it off. haha

Ulcer at the start



Day after Contact Lense was Fitted



Day Contact was taken out



These are just a series of the healing process

Some fascinating pix here! Mine are a bit humdrum by comparison - typical ringworm lesions :eek: This one is before Imaverol treatment, it started off as a raised area of fur but then the fur sloughed off. It's about the size of a 2p piece



And this is about a week after starting treatment, the lesions were looking a bit less red and the new ones that came up were very tiny and didn't get any bigger ;)



And a very old (late 1980s :eek:) set of 'before and after' pix that show what a bit of TLC & a new saddle that actually fits can do for a horse that's a bit sorry for himself (and proving that white hairs under saddles can go away ;)) The pix were taken about a year apart as I recall.

My horse is undergoing treatment for suspensory damage (has just has a bilateral neurectomy) and arthritis in both hocks (will be having corticosteroid injections into hocks and sacro iliac and will be treating with tildren) so I thought I would post some of her scan images as I thought they were interesting so thought some of you lot might to :)

Full album is here:
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=31595&id=1678350003

Xrays

Clear spine:




Right Hock from outside-Showing greater arthritic changes in the 'shock absorber' joints, note less clear distinction between plates


Right Hock from inside-Showing greater arthritic changes in the 'shock absorber' joints, note less clear distinction between plates and also dark patches where the body is trying to combat the arthritis by eating away at the bone.


Right hock from front-again note lack of ditinction between plates and the dark patches


Left Hock from outside-Showing slight arthritic changes in the 'shock absorber' joints


Right Sacro Iliac


Left Sacro Iliac



Ultrasound of left hock-the part with lots of lines is the tandon and thedark lines are bad


Right Hock:


Bone scans

Hind quaters-dark region around the sacrolilac shows higher levels of metabolic activity-this is bad


Rib cage from above (I *think* the dark area is the heart)


Lower hind leg


Hocks-again you can see the really dark patch on the right hind and the less distinct dark on the left


Pelvis/Sacro iliac-there is damage here from she had been compensating

My horse recently passed away due to a disease called atypical myglobinura, these are pictures taken 4 hours after falling ill and he passed away not long afterwards.

My friend was intrigued to how the drip worked so I took the pictures for her:





I really want to spread awareness of this condition its not a very nice way to go and the horses deteriort (SP) very quickly, Koko was competing succesfully the evening before he fell ill. I would hate for someone to go through what I have so they are not nice to look at but I want people to know what this disease does to the horses.

found both of mine in the field after a slanging match!
grace had this on the inside of her hind leg, healed very well without stictches. just a small scar visable.

caused alot of swelling travelling down the leg so she was bandaged to stop it going down the leg.
swelling visable on the inside of the hock

prince had 4 year old scar tissue bust open and agrivation of old airline fracture. lame in walk for 3 weeks. cant see it very well on the photo other than the very swollen leg. took nearly 3 weeks to heal with dressing everyday with intrasite gel.

wow that is one of the worst KS i have seen. what is he like now?
She is only 8 weeks post op and not being worked yet, out in the field though and seems to be doing well, She will start physio in 4 weeks and then lunging so we will see. She's a tough cookie though and I think she will be fine!

Oscarwild, may I ask what caused the ulcer and did he regain vision in that eye?
To be honest we are not entirely sure what caused the eye to ulcer. But he escaped out the field and did a roational fall over the 5ft stone wall and caused lots of damage to shoulder, neck, internal organs and legs. That was 6 weeks before the eye looked like anything was wrong. So there is every chance that it has came from that accident and took time to develop from the trauma.

Oscar still has a white blob scar in the centre of his eye. He has sight in the eye but is blind behind on the side of the ulcer. The scarring white blob will not get any smaller now and we just have to see how he gets on due to the blindness behind. So far he is doing fine :D

I found this horse in the Algarve a few days ago. It unfortunately disappeared after a gypsy saw me taking an interest in it. I am doing everything I can to locate the horse. Wanted people to have a look at the photos as I have had an opinion from a vet from these photos and would also like to know if anyone's horses have had similar injuries in the past and if it was treatable.





Evidently this hasn't come on over a day or two so this horse has probs been in pain for some time. It is very lame on its right hind and we believe it to be about a year old.

they look like sores of some kind, it unlikely that would survive, the infection will get into the tendons ect if it hasnt already. those legs are very swollen. poor little man. :-(

Oh those are heartbreaking photographs. Poor animal. Might be worth posting in Veterinary as a new thread in its own right in case people don't come into this specific conditions/injuries one? Hope you manage to locate the animal again.

3 year old QH colt, before during and after cleft palate surgery - vet advised that only 20% of the new palate would 'take', however thus far we have a 90% success rate.
Pre surgery(also much younger!) Note the mucus

Immediately post surgery
