    Back leg joint sticking

    Estrone injections help, too. I forgot about those. That was the first treatment we were going to try on one of mine if the exercise etc. did not help.

    Choosing boots

    I've used the gel pads to take up space. It reduces the size of the fit by maybe 1/4 size or a little more on my guys. Snugs them up a little.

    Walking/Hiking with our minis and ponies - Mile Tracker!

    20 minute for Cappy, ground driving and 10 for Oatie. I about boiled over but it didn't bother them at all. I probably had a hot flash :-)

    Back leg joint sticking

    Sounds like you are describing"sticky stifles". Gentle walking incorporating some hills and pole work when he's stronger might help. He's probably worse now as it sounds like he didn't get much exercise when you and hub were not feeling well. My older guy get previcox/equioxx once in awhile...

    This Bud's for You

    I hope this will open for you. They went right in front of my barn today, you can even hear Peanut whinny in the background if you listen closely. They were gorgeous.

    Walking/Hiking with our minis and ponies - Mile Tracker!

    I agree, people hear are complaining non-stop about the heat, but it's no worse than usual. It is dry, very dry, but the temps are the same. Oatie and I have been practicing in-hand dressage and he enjoys his walks. 10-15 minutes each day. He won a 5th in an online show in a "walk-only" test...

    Equine Quirks

    This may or may not apply, but I have heard that sucking the tongue might indicate ulcers. I think a vet told me this years and years ago. I don't know if there is any truth to this or not, but Cappy DID suck his tongue when he was going through treatment for his infected sinus. He was on a...

    Howdy MC! Good to hear from you!

    Did you have welsh ponies? I just watched the Royal Welsh Horse and Pony show and those small welsh are beyond gorgeous. Just lovely little things. I have a welsh pony and would love another, but too much $$$ as they all are made into pony hunters!

    And then there are the pony hunters. I've seen some huge "ponies" go around in those divisions. Like 15 hand "ponies". I had pony that fell into the "large" category by about 1.75 inches and the trainer I had at the time swore up and down she could get her to measure 13.2 so she could show...

    Count my vote for Tonto! He's cute! A little bigger than DD (who looks wonderful!)

    Walking/Hiking with our minis and ponies - Mile Tracker!

    30 minutes for the boys today, a short walk for all three. Marsha, did you pick up the minis this weekend with your sister? Can't wait to hear about them if you did.

    Skin condition - extremely concerned

    Have you tried allergy shots (if they have it) for the gnat allergy?

    Skin condition - extremely concerned

    I would guess if it's seasonal it wouldn't be feed related then. I'm curious, does he sunburn or does the condition get worse when he's in the sun? My guy with lupus has to go out covered in the summer because the stronger sun triggers it.
