I have a mare that we are retiring from show due to arthritis in her shoulder. She has been comfortable and sound in pasture, and sound for light riding occasionally with a little bute . Recently though I have noticed she is starting to limp around a little in the pasture at the trot. She still runs with the best of them and is a very happy mare. I have not been giving her any sort of pain medication for the arthritis on a daily basis. I had been trying to hold off since she wasn't showing signs, but now that shes is, I feel I need to start giving her a little something. The bute works perfectly, but I do not want to use it as a long term solution for fear of what it will do to the poor girls stomach! So what supplements would you all recommend? I will be asking my vet as well, but thought I would get your input.
