On countryfile last night, the Blue Cross stated that 'three quarters of all horses have something wrong with them'. So come on, 'fess up, what's wrong? Mine has a small curb and had a sarcoid last year, but I would class him as sound and healthy, 75% sounds very high.

Can only think of 3 on our yard of 16 that don't have 'something wrong'

Mostly minor things, we have 1 with sweet itch, 2 with cushings, 2 with copd, 3 with old leg injuries, 2 with box feet, 2 with dodgy teeth, 3 with general stiffness, 1 locking stiffle & a few other bits & bobs!

My big girl had tendon surgery last yr, but fingers crossed is now sound.

Am also about to acquire a beautiful 8yr old ex HOYS champion hack that nobody wants because she has a splint and also needs a small op. She was going to be put down, Sad so is coming to me for free and should make a fab dressage horse, as she moves like a fairy Smile

As for me. I have so many things wrong with me I dont know where to start Grin

Mine has wobblers (stage 3) and will be put down at the end of the summer aged 6 having only done one event last year. Beautifully bred, mega talented (used to school over 1.30m) and kind, affectionate personality but deteriorating quickly now. Very sad to watch.
