Ugh.

Some days I just feel tired. Poor Vaquero girl never gets to see her little grandson these days. Bob is showing serious signs of arthritis, and Lil Mama is running out of money. I can't wait for the days to get longer, and warmer. I am sick to death of the rain and mud. I am really worried about my poor horse. When he first comes out he is a little lame. (not three legged, it comes and go's and there is no heat in the leg or foot) Just a little hitch in his giddy up. With about 10 to 15 minutes of warm up he no longer limps. Hmmm??? I talked to a couple of my horse buddies. They seem to think it is arthritis. They think if it was anything else it would get worse not better after warm up. Again, hmmm. I don't really have the money to take him to davis to get x-rayed and he is 14 this year. I think I will start him on so glucosomine with condroitin and see if it helps. Does any body have any brand they perticulary like?

I really like Corte-flex or Corte-RX
Comes with Devils claw and Yucca ,(works like a daily dose of bute without the GI upset)

Sounds like arthritis to me. Keeping him legged up will help

Sorry about the last post... the link screwed up. What I said, was:
I wouldn't have a clue, but I'm hoping that warmer weather will help.
I don't know if this will help or not, but I went to the "Just Answer" people with questions about my cats (cat flu) and they were great! They gave me tips on what to do myself, and saved me a fortune in vet bills
They also have vets in all fields, so maybe it's worth a try? There is a small fee involved, but you can set the fee yourself...
Just type in justanswer.com (or justanswer.com veterinary) and then look up equine vets.
