There has been some recent disucssion in this group about Rooney's Video
Guide to Lameness and a request for viewers comments or reviews. Rooney's
Video Guide is actually a two-part series covering the front leg; and the
back and hind leg. I think its excellent but I readily admit bias since
my company produced it.
But getting to the point of this post--Most subscriber's are "hands--on"
horsepeople. Rooney, of course, is a world-class expert on equine
lameness and biomechanics. As most know, he is the former head of the
Gluck Equine Research Center at the University of Kentucky. He's just
the type of guy most horse people would like to chat with.
It occurs to me that rec.equestrian just might be a vehicle for an exhange
of information. Subscribers could post their questions to Rooney here
and, periodically - say twice a month or so - he could post his answers.
It might be fun, informative and, best of all, free!
Please post your thoughts on this idea. If it has merit, I will take it
up with him when we have dinner in Lexington later this month (I'll try to
slip in the idea of yet another demand on his time at a point he least
expects it - probably sometime after we finish our second botttle of wine
and before desert.
Let me know what you think
