    Thanks! Well I’m glad I followed my gut and didn’t just listen to all the people trying to convince me it was all attitude! I KNEW it had to be pain related. Chiropractor came out and it turns out that Ace’s left shoulder was slightly dropped, he had pain responses all down his back the worst spot being where a rider sits, and his sacrum wasn’t aligned. Fixed all that and his whole demeanor changed. I swear if he could have forced the chiropractor to stay permanently he would have! Rode him lightly today. He started off bracey and defensive but slowly started to relax. We shall see how he does tomorrow. He’s still being scoped for ulcers.

    The pain can cause ulcers too so glad you are still looking at scoping.

    Well, I can’t use that awesome coupon :(
    I double checked with the APHA and her colour testing has to be through either Etalon or UC Davis for them to consider it.

    I’m leaning towards going ahead and doing the full panel through Etalon so I have the PSSM test and the pattern test (and a whole bunch of other stuff) done all at once.

    Yeah, AQHA only accepts UC Davis.

    Come to find out Brandi has *not* been getting her supplement for a while. $&@&$Sjfnakfnfbfnan%#$&@!!!!!!!

    Maybe, just maybe, not getting her MSM has something to do with why I’m having issues with her again?:mad:

    Still planning on testing. Just to be sure there isn’t anything else. But good God almighty. I’ve got a 17 year old horse who tends to be sore. GIVE HER HER **** SUPPLEMENT!

    Eh, I don't know that MSM would make that much difference.

    At her age and with the activities you do (barrels) I'd wonder if it is time to consider things like joint injections or Adequan.

    I’ve considered that.
    I do think the MSM does make at least a little difference, though. Historically. Though it’s certainly possible that she needs more than that now that she’s getting older.

    BM apologizes humbily (what a nice change from the old place) and is going to make sure she gets her supplement. We’re going to give her the loading dose for a week to build it back up in her system. We’ll see if it makes any difference.

    And far as joint injections, though, I don’t think the normal hock injections will do the trick. I’m not really sure what we’d inject. And can only imagine the number of X-rays needed to isolate what should be injected.

    IM injections or Prevacox is what I’m going to look into next. Especially if the PSSM test is negative.

    @DelP uses IM injections for her STB and has great success. I'm sure she'd love to share her thoughts!
