    Not a bad way to do it - I’ve donw it, but first I got a vet in to do flexions & rads as needed/warranted/suspected. It can just save paying the above mentioned board for 6-9months........

    I’m sorry it’s turning out like this @mooselady. I would get a good lameness vet in & do a proper PPE before dropping anymore $ into board and training and clothing........

    I was delighted, I had led her up to have a look, she sniffed, she tried to eat it, she walked on it. Put the line on her and she just went straight over.

    I have her on this Probioplus at the moment.

    I notice the stiffness on her right hind. I dont necessarily see a true blue lameness, I see a stiff horse, who maybe needs a bit more strengthening

    I've a funny feeling Miss Miss here is going to turn out to be a pass on project ML. For what you want, looks like she's not going to fit, but for someone else she'd well be perfect. Good luck. ;)

    (Possibly) Lame horse isn’t a fit for anyone (except a pasture pet horse, anyway) so I’m not sure what you mean by this?

    I’m not sure what ML is thinking, but I think it’s still too early to tell.

    I’m thinking if I could turn back the clock i wouldn’t buy her...

    I’m thinking that unless I can sort her out I am SOL here, because unless I can actually get some money for her, then I am going to be grounded, possibly forever....and as you say, ain’t no one going to buy a lame horse.

    BUT I am just depressed and kind of confused with her right now, so taking a deep breath and carrying on.

    Hopefully her issues are something can be sorted and she turns out wonderful— either for you or someone else. :)

    Saw a cartoon on Facebook that was something like, “If you stare at a horse long enough, you can make it lame in any leg you want to.”

    Which can be both encouraging or discouraging depending on what you’re dealing with. :rolleyes:

    Hopefully it’s nothing major that can’t be fixed with time and a little tlc.
