I have Canadian cross mare about six years old and she has gone lame. My farrier has indicated that it is the inner flexor tendon on her front leg. There are times when she is alright and suddenly she goes lame again. What can I do for her?

Thanks all for the advice, finally found a local person with big enough trailer to haul the horse.

check your local tack or feed store, there maybe a poster board there with some one advertising to do hauling for horses. Also, the trailer should be at least 8 ft tall and 8 ft wide so your horse won't panic. I would help you but I'm in B.C. Canada

OK, I have two Clydesdales and have just come across a few items stating that this is the time of year to delouse your horses. I have search for information on this and have been unable to find anything tangible about it. Can anyone give me any information of determining if I actually need to do this and if so how? Thanks

Elaine, before you do anything to your precious horse, it is important to get a proper diagnosis. Either your vet, or someone you trust who knows how and what injuries affect horses could be helpful.

If it turns out to be a permanent injury, why not let him run happy as a pasture horse, with lots of love. Hope this helps

The federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has issued its 2010 Round-up Schedule which provides for the capture of a staggering 12,000 additional wild horses and burros, at the cost of 32 million of our tax dollars! Given BLM?s recent handwringing over the number of horses in government holding, this announcement is simply baffling. More than ever, America?s wild horses are under siege, their long-term survival increasingly threatened.

Nevada?s Calico Complex, with over 2,500 horses slated for removal next month, is high on the list of questionable removals and another example of BLM?s out-of-control behavior. This herd was last rounded up in 2005, when BLM left an estimated 575 horses on the range and gave the mares a contraceptive vaccine. Yet, BLM now claims there are over 3,000 horses in that same area, a preposterous number, even by BLM standards. Locals familiar with the herd are adamant there are far from that many horses left on that range. Indeed, only BLM?s creative accounting could find that a herd has quintupled in size in less than five years, let alone a herd under a contraceptive program!

Interesting background information: last year, BLM authorized a 300% increase in cattle grazing for the area, and the building of a fence that BLM itself admitted might cut wild horses from their winter range and cause them to die. Wild horses would also be locked out of the best pasture with the most abundant water during the driest time of the year. At the time, BLM justified its decision by arguing that wild horse populations in the area were minimal. A couple of months later, it came out with its puzzling claim of population explosion, setting the stage for this massive round-up.

Clearly, something here is amiss. Where did these 3,000 horses come from?

Comments to BLM regarding this round-up must be provided by Thursday, November 12, 4:30 pm PST to Jerome Fox, BLM, 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd., Winnemucca, NV 89445; Fax: (775) 623-1503; Email: (please be sure to include the following reference #: DOI-BLM-NV-W030-2010-0001-EA)

More importantly, the Department of Justice, which is currently investigating BLM for other misdeeds, must be made aware of another instance of this federal agency running amok. Please express your concerns over BLM?s questionable practices and continued mismanagement of our wild horses to:

John Cruden, Acting Assistant Attorney General
U.S. Department of Justice, Room 2141
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20530-0001
(note: letters to the DOJ are not subject to the Nov. 12 deadline)

On behalf of America?s wild horses, thank you for your support,

The AWHPC Team

Try Googling the terms to find websites of breeders in the area you want, but be prepared to pay quite a bit for one as they are still a draft-de-jour. How easy is it to look after those long feathers in NY state's weather?
