Karen....I am beyond ecstatic that my local distributor was within your driving range. Kurt's Feed is a family run business, and they are the best. So glad that it worked out for you and Apollo. It's a longer drive from there to Chana, IL to get Stabul...but again, they are excellent people to work with and I trust them because Dr. Kellon has helped them to develop their protocols. So if you are ever making the trip down here to get ODTBC or  Stabul, please let me know. We are not that far apart and I would love to meet you and have you meet my old boy.

I feel like we are in the same boat...just doing the best we can with our take care of our animals.

I think I am working with a good farrier again, who shows up on time, and is quickly becoming a friend. NO ONE I have worked with was willing to take advice on hoof trimming from this board. My current farrier understands what I have been through, and I don't feel as if I have to tread quite as lightly around her. I assure her that she is the expert, and when I ask a is just that...a question. Her answers and explanations make sense to me. After much hesitation, I bought a small rasp, and if I think Scotty's feet look a little *off* between his 4 week trims, I am taking a few swipes here and there. I would never feel confident enough to do it 100%, but I now have an option to help him out.

We all need support...I am glad that my suggestion helped you out.
