Week #2

This stunning 6 year old sorrel 14.1 hand mare was rescued from the feedlot in May 2006. She has been started under saddle and is available for adoption to the perfect home.

I would guess an abcess with how quickly she is getting lame on it.

Hey Ally... she does look a tad tender, but not three legged lame. Hopefully it is just an abcess like Altanera suggested. I don't know much about foundering, but Trish said that Class likely foundered in the past, hence our concern about her being on grass. The grass in her pasture at Red Barn is so minimal, short and dry, I can't imagine it would be that...? And of course, I don't know enough about foundering to know if the off-ness in this video could be due to foundering?

Maybe Dr. Hannah wouldn't mind taking a peek at her on Friday after our chiro appointments? Unless, of course, Class is fine by then :P

Thanks for taking such good care of her!

I was thinking that too, about Dr Hannah.

There is very little grass out there- much less than I thought. I just had Carole up her hay ration about 3 days ago because with the work we've been doing I thought I saw her losing weight.

I hope she did something silly and that she'll be fine. If its an abscess we can deal with that too- I've been hearing about them from so many people this year.

I'll keep an eye on her and we can always have Dr Hannah look at her on Friday if need be. :( :?

poor girl! I hope she's back on track soon for you.

I have to say, she looks GREAT under saddle. I am just completely impressed with this girl and how quickly she's coming along.

Will you try and do some schooling shows or something to get her soem exposure? (once she's sound again of course!)

Well- the plan was to go on a trailride this saturday- get her that experience. If she's sound we'll still go. *crossing fingers*

I'd love to take her to some shows- but I dont know of anything local coming up, and I only have her till the end of the month.

Another challenge: no trailer. So Julie or someone would have to haul us places :) And i know Julie is about to be slammed with moving again and stuff- so i dont know how realistic that would be. but it sure would be fun! :D

Here's to hoping she's sound again soon!

There's supposed to be a schooling show this month at Reber Ranch, supporting and hosted by a local drill team (the one Rachel and Natalie are on). We could try going to that? Hehehe! :)

I hope Class is sound again soon!!!

Yeah they are hosting one there. I actually was thinking about trying to take a horse there since I am no longer on the team I can go ride in the show. :) Ally if you wanna go to the show I can pick you and miss Class up in my trailer and take you there, no charge! Even if you just wanna hit the trails. lol I should get Cassie really going so I can take her to the show too. :shock:

It doesn't sound much like founder to me. If it was you'd definately feel heat in her hoof. I haven't had much experience with founder, but I do have an extremely easy keeper who has foundered before. I was told to watch out for heat in her hooves, especially in the spring when there's new grass. If I did feel any kind of heat I would have to take her off the grass and put her on a dry lot until the heat went away. I just thank god that Keila has never foundered serious enough to make her permanently lame. Keila is permanently on a dry lot now (for her suspected cushings) so I don't have to watch out for founder anymore with her.

I hope Class feels better soon.

ya- definitely didnt feel heat.

i do have these little temperature strips that i am going to put on her hooves this afternoon- not so much to see the temperature but to check if there are any differences or if they are all consistent.

i'll post an update tonight!

I'd bet anything it's an abcess. We've seen a ton of them this year. My mare Belle blew one out complete with blood and pus, and she had not been any more lame on it than Class is now.
