There is ONE... ONE WAY to confirm Navicular Syndrome...
By nerve blocking and radiographs!
Fugly has x-ray vision, and so do a lot of other people. Who? I would like to meet these people and have them travel around with me with their x-ray vision! Good Lord!
Listen... I truly believe this broad started out with all good intentions.
However, as with many people who can't handle their 15 minutes.....
There Is Not a farrier in the WORLD who will "CONFIRM" navicular syndrome on a case study horse without rads! And being a farrier... I have yet to be informed on the "EXACT PRIMARY CAUSE OF NAVICULAR"... smaller hooves on larger horses seems to be One common factor (NOT Always) IN horses diagnosed with navicular syndrome, and many of those horses where badly shod for awhile, so the "actual" cause???? Unknown! And it is EXTREMELY RARE for a unshod horse to be confirmed with navicular syndrome. I work on A LOT of horses with small hooves and larger bodies, who have been sired or foaled by navicular diagnosed horses NEVER get diagnosed with navicular syndrome.
Sooo please, anyone reading this SHIT she posted.... you are being seriously misinformed!!! NOOO ONE CAN PREDICT NAVICULAR SYNDROME IN ANY HORSE!!! There are more questions than answers on navicular syndrome at this point and time, hence the word "syndrome"! Every farrier and vet I know do NOT diagnose a horse with navicular "disease" until the navicular bone progresses through to the stage of actual deterioration, a point of no return. Which I might add is seen ONLY through rads!
Q: Did you get PM'd a "top secret" email? Please forward me your "secret"... HAHAHAA
YET!!! YOU can PREDICT navicular syndrome BEFORE symptoms are present in a SOUND horse, ON A 2 yr old!!??? When NO VET or FARRIER can officially diagnose a LAME horse WITHOUT a study of tests and RADS! You ARE a frickin JOKE! Now you have the knowledge above vets and us farriers!
Seems how Fugly is an expert... why is she not advising this member on the inhumane bullshit this horse is going through???
The first picture really dramatizes his poor confirmation because he’s standing down hill.
BuuuuullShiiiiiit! I see no grade in the ground from the picture, ahhh.. see where the barn meets the ground? Anyways... 1. That's NOT how a horse stands on a grade .. 2. that's NOT why the horse is standing in that form...
THIS IS WHY!!!
First He needs BUTE NOW!
He needs a TRIM NOW!
And because of all the damage, Needs Shod NOW!
He needs a sugar free diet NOW!
He needs a cushioned stall NOW!
and Rads asap!
HE'S IN HORRENDOUS PAIN!!!
