Regioinal database update - Volunteer needed

Nancy C
 

We've been talking about the regional database and members have stepped up to loan out a hay corer and  give support regionally. As noted, there have been a lot of new members added to the group since that list was started and adding more volunteers who will help out in their area is a good idea.

We need a volunteer to collect names that can then be put in to the database. IF you are interested in helping with this, please drop me a pm  - threecatfarm "at" cyberpine "dot" net.

Just a reminder, besides the DATABASE and FILES sections,  the LINKS section is also a great resource.


You can access these and MORE under the MORE tab (convenient huh?) on the group home page directly under the cover photo.


Thanks!

Re: Jesse.. a few stumbles today

Thanks for the reply. Jesse is alert and appears otherwise normal.. His last trim was 8/21 and the feet look okay. Sending in pix for Lavania to look at, is my plan.  lj friedman san diego nov 2014. 


Hay Probe to loan in CA central coast area

Lydia Lawson
 

I bought a hay corer from Equi Analytical and would be willing to loan it out to anyone or help someone get a sample in my area if they need to test hay. I looked in the files but did not find a database for that so just wanted to put it out there. Im in the San Luis Obispo area.

Agree, Kathy, that feet would be a good first place to look. Hinds are often forgotten, or last minute, and so important, but if the fores are off too, it can cause stumbling, back and hip issues.

Hi Lj,

Just a thought...when was his last hoof trim?  How is his trim looking and working for him?  I have an arthritic QH who I need to keep any eye on so that his toes and break over are correct or he will drag his hind toes and stumble........and his stride is wonky.

Re: Test Results for Jasper

 

Hi Corrine, how is Jasper and have you been able to increase pergolide yet with your vet's new prescription?

Re: Jesse.. a few stumbles today

 

LJ,

You mentioned Jesse's had a few days off and that its hot -- likely he's just stiff from not moving, as most older horses tend to be (PPID or not) when they miss several consecutive days of working. I'd keep an eye on it but wouldnt worry just yet. Likely when your trainer starts riding again he'll loosen back up.

I find when its exceptionally hot my horses tend to stand around (they live out 24/7) more than usual and the older ones get a bit stiff.

Without any other problems noted I dont think I'd worry too much abt the stumbling just yet. Its excellent you are observing Jesse so astutely -- hopefully you are keeping a journal of your notes.

Is Jesse acting fine in every other way (eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, bright/alert, etc?)

Re: Jesse.. a few stumbles today

lj friedman
 

thanks for the reply.. I guess I'm brainwashed that the answer to everything is to increase pergolide.. Jesse finished a pentosan regimen a few weeks ago as well as being on mov ease.  thanks for suggesting an alternative cause..   lj friedman san diego nov 2014 


Re: Jesse.. a few stumbles today

Valletta Lochridge
 

As a practitioner of Equine Craniosacral Therapy, I see many horses who drag their hinds or stumble in the hinds.  Often, this issue 
is a result of problems in the low back and/or hind limbs.  I'm not saying that this is the cause of Jesse's stumbles today.  I'm only saying that if it continues, (and I would watch it very closely) you may need to look into physical issues and pain.  You've said in the past that Jesse has been diagnosed with arthritis.  Be aware that, as in humans, the arthritis may not be limited to only the joints near the feet.

Re: Jesse.. a few stumbles today

With the seasonal rise still in effect., I was told to re-test and re assess mid September.. when does the rise start to taper off.. If the vet is coming out on tuesday, sept 15th, should I re test  cornell labs then? 


Jesse.. a few stumbles today

lj friedman
 

Jesse hasnt been ridden in a few days because its been so hot and the trainer usually rides him in late afternoon.. Ive been walking him.. This evening,.. he stumbled 3 times, nothing major , just a break in his normal stride, but it alarmed me. .. not sure which leg.. etc.. I asked a trainer to have a look and she said it looked like he wasnt lifting his back legs very much.. Possible causes?   seasonal rise?  change from prascend to compounded?  My feeling is that the answer could be to increase pergolide?  I have the vet coming on Tues for my other horse, so I can have him have a look.  I have increased pergolide  from 2mg to 3mg and see no other changes. Sometimes it seems that he needs to warm up from being old and stiff., but the stumbles happened in the beginning of the walk and after 10 minutes as well   He is also on mov ease. Could it be the very hot weather we;ve been having  100 degree highs and often 90 degrees at 7pm. He does have full shade and I hose him down as well.

New blood work done

Kimberly Simmons
 

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ECHistory5/files/Eclipse-%20NH/


This is Eclipse's new blood work. I had her well under control but then we moved and she gained a ton on weight. Got her a new grazing muzzle and her numbers are in the compensated IR range but her Leptin is high. I linked to our file in the History5 group.

Any thoughts on the Leptin and also, I don't think I did a great blood draw, would that make much of a difference?

Re: IR and thyroid medication

Nancy C
 

Hi Anthie

Thanks for your update.

Many of us have found that once getting the diet in order with correct proportion of minerals, the thyrol-l is not needed.  Primary hypothyroidism is rarely found in the horse but euthyroid sick syndrome is often found.
Here are good messages about thyroid by Dr Kellon.

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/EquineCushings/conversations/messages/132428
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/EquineCushings/conversations/messages/135426

  Many of us have used source successfully for iodine. Or had iodine added to our custom supplements. NRC raised iodine requirements in the horse so that iodized slat alone will not supply enough.


I would suggest using magnesium oxide for your mag source.  Lots of discussion about the chelated mags in the message archives but the summary info that is malate is not as well absorbed as oxide.  Here's an earlier message with links to more:

Equine Cushings and Insulin Resistance

 

Will need a Californian to suggest where to get feed grade mag oxide, but out east, I buy a 40 pound bag for $20 that will last almost all year.
