Q&A then and now

Your Horse (UK) - - Looking Back At Horsey History -

It seems that some of the is­sues fac­ing horse own­ers haven’t changed over the years, with the first-ever Q & A sec­tion (right) be­ing mostly about lamini­tis. Read­ers of the day ap­pre­ci­ated pic­tures that showed ex­actly how lamini­tis af­fected the hooves, but they’re not so easy to de­ci­pher in black and white. There’s a lot of talk about ad­min­is­trat­ing purga­tives, which we had to look up! It means lax­a­tive. We may cover some of the same topics in 2018 (be­low), but much of the ad­vice has changed with the de­vel­op­ment of bet­ter di­ag­nos­tic equip­ment and more ef­fec­tive treat­ments. Own­ers and rid­ers are more knowl­edge­able th­ese days too.
