I have a question for all of you out there....(I'm sure this topic has been 
brought up before, but me being a "newbie" have not seen any info).
I'm just curious how splints can/will affect the endurance horse.  I have a 
3 y.o. 3/4 Arab filly that developed a splint when she was a yearling (got 
scared by a bear....ran quite a ways, including through a few fences....nice 
big vet bill).  She has never had a problem with it since- no 
I want to start ground work with her in the next few months (I'm not going 
to start riding her until she is four, just in case anyone was wondering).
So, anyone out there had/have a successful endurance horse with a splint?  
Is there any extra precautions I should take other then hosing down that leg 
before and after I excercise her?  Other then that, she is a very nice 
mover, and has good conformation, and great mind.
Thanks in advance!!

season ALREADY?)

starting to kick already....)
