10 TheHorse.com THE HORSE February 2018 DID YOU CATCH OUR LIVE EVENT ABOUT NAVICULAR? I found this event ( TheHorse.com/39986) very interesting since I have a 21-year-old Quarter Horse with navicular disease. I have noticed that if the weather changes, he gets sore. Now I will contact our vet and farrier. I want to thank you for the meeting, It has helped me a lot. I treasure TheHorse.com, and I am making a reference book out of your articles. Corinne Fry I now have a much better understanding of navicular disease, its symptoms, and treatments. I have done the surgery, injections of Osphos, and arthritis injections for my Percheron/Quarter Horse. I had decided to euthanize him a couple of weeks ago, as he was so very sore, but he start- ed to suddenly improve and is continuing to improve! I can now start him on a low-impact exercise program. So thankful to still have my boy. Thanks to your experts for their insights and advice for this frustrating, complicated disease. Daryl Zoratti I have just listened to the (recording), and it was really great. I have a horse who has been diagnosed with navicu- lar changes, amongst other things (via MRI), and this has confirmed that I am doing the correct things for her. Jeni Ball STAY FOCUSED Your article "Hidden Horse Farm Hazards" (TheHorse. com/39787) was a great reminder. However, the one thing that I've found to be the hardest after 50 years of having my barn was to focus on what I was doing. The turn- ing off of lights, turning off the water, latching gates, and especially latching stall doors is done many times a day, and I try to make myself double- check everything I do before leaving the area. Unfortu- nately, what we do automati- cally can be left undone if we don't focus and remember to complete. Louise H.
