I have a yearling that keeps retaining fluid on the knee. She shows no signs of lameness and is bred to be a big hunter horse (indian artifacts) so she keeps going thru tremendous growth spurts. When a growth spurt hits she becomes qwivery, like she is having continous mascle spasms from the shoulder down. I have never seen this before in my other foals but am told it is common in the big hunter quarter horses (she is not impressive bred). My main concern is the fluid on the knee that comes and goes. I am mudding it, running cold water on it and buteing when needed. Anyone have any ideas or delt with fluid on the knee? Thank you!

the quivery is from the tightness of the tendons and I have seen it before in growthy babies. Is she unsound on the knee? if not why are you giving her bute? How are you feeding her? She may be on too much protein and growing too fast.... I would ask vet about the knee though.

Posting this information for anyone interested in attending this meeting. If anyone has questions let me know.

Hi everybody,
The date and location of our next Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition (MHWC) meeting to Saturday, May 22, 2010 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, up in the Traverse City area. We’re finalizing details on whether we’ll conduct the meeting at the animal shelter in Traverse City, then head on over to The Horse North Rescue and Placement Program in Fife Lake to meet some of the horses rescued from a recent case in Livingston County (see below).

And as you may have heard, the MHWC recently took part in its first rescue operation in Livingston County. A total of 11 horses were discovered on a property by Livingston County Animal Control on April 16th in response to a 911 call. Two horses were already deceased and one had to be euthanized due to extreme neglect and untreated injuries that prevented the horse from walking. Upon learning that the horses would be sent to auction, MHWC volunteers rallied to offer assistance in moving the horses to sanctuaries and foster homes for rehabilitation and rehoming. Please visit the MHWC website for the full story and photos here: [michiganhorsewelfarecoalition.org]

Please mark your calendars for the meeting date of March 22, and thank you all for your patience as we finalize the details of the meeting. And please let me know if you have any questions.

If I remember correctly from a previous post, some of those horses are tatooed Standardbreds. Check with the united states trotting association web page. They have money available to rescue groups for standardbred horses. Might help you guys a bit. Also...if you want to provide the tatoo numbers, i would be glad to look up last recorded owners for you...people need to know what can happen when they are not carefull who they sell there horses to!....thanks for your hard work for the critters!!

wink Just a quick FYI for anyone looking for a farrier. I love our farrier and he is now doing all of my gaited friend's horses. My horses have never been smoother. He is always on time, reasonably priced and patient. He will travel if there are more than a couple of horses. Give him a call: Doug Vanderwoude at 616 916 2766! You will be thrilled with his work.

I need some help from mule owners please. My husband does not have interest in riding horses. But this weekend we went to Brown County State Park (in Indiana) and there were quite a few mules. He REALLY liked them and decided he would like to pursue buying one. Any advice on buying a mule? My husband is a beginner rider. He hates "bouncing" and wants a gaited mule, but I'm thinking we can't afford one as I know that they can be difficult to find. Any suggestions on where to buy a good mule? Any other advice is appreciated. I have owned a horse for 25 years, but don't have much experience with mules

we have a nice gaited molly mule for sale. She is 15HH will go anywhere you point her. We don\'t consider her a great gaited mule She has what we call a mule shuffle which is real smooth. She loads clips, bathes, trims and ties great. She is completely sound and uptodate on all shots, worming and coggins. She has had 30 days professional training on her. She is a joy to be around. You can ride her in the front, middle back or away from the group. Call 231 854-3785 for more information and pics.

Im interested in camping and riding the Stoney Creek area but can not go on the Blossom ride. Is the camp and the trail open for horse folks all summer long or just during a MTRA ride? Thanks for any info.

Stoney Creek is a open Campground for anyone looking to camp all summer long for horse people or anyone else. There is some circle riding and a beautiful ridge next to a small lake to ride also just south from camp along the blue trail.

Yes I use them and so does my neighbor. Make sure you get them to fit correctly, I have a large for a 900-1000 lb round bale. My horses do great with them and I have much less waste. My round bales are lasting 3 to 4 days longer while using the bale buddy.

We have a horse limping, saw it first thing the next morning after the horrible storm. I am guessing the high winds, down pours, lightning and thunder scared him and he ran into something. Scary weather for sure in Northern MI!

Mules grow until age 7 usually. Maybe you shouldn't give up on her just yet. She looks like a very nice mule and could be a super trail/show mule.

The Shawnee National Forest is beautiful this time of year. We stayed at High Knob Campground and were pleased with nice stalls and shower facilities. There are many trails out of camp. Camp is uner new owners and they are really cleaning it up. It is a long drive but worth the trip.
