    S1969 replied to a thread Sedating For Farrier Work in Horse Care
    Yes, but I think the more important aspect at this point is a good farrier. If it's hard to find any good farrier, it might be even harder to find a...

    My mare was bred by a Hall of Fame trainer; was unraced at 3, unplaced at 4 and bred 7 times with 6 live foals, by lower and lower quality breeders,...

    Agree with this 100% - and would add that a consult with the vet and farrier about exactly what meds are appropriate is probably the best approach. ...

    I see the mane is an issue but his neck is "heavier" than the first picture. If you posted another pic maybe we'd have a different opinion, but I...

    I think he looks a lot heavier overall now, not just a hay belly. The first picture is just a month ago? He looks like he's gained 50+ lbs since...

    Interestingly, my vet did not recommend icing feet. Just treating with IV antibiotics and banamine. It certainly can't hurt, though.
