.... my daughter's horse, Bentley, has "mild navicular".
To be honest, I've always thought him a prime candidate with his tiny QH
feet and build.
The Good News is that he doesn't have arthritis going on in the pastern or
the fetlock or the coffin....
So, as we need to keep him working sound for another few years, the plan is
"navicular shoeing" and isoxoprene.
Someone today, also told me about an injection of something called Tildren
that they do in Europe more often than here, that costs $1,000 for a series
of 5 shots, and can only be administered once a year or so, but has kept her
navicular horse going well and sound for the last couple of years. Anyone
hear of that? I'm going to Google it but wondered if there were any more
first hand experiences.
