[RC] fever rings - Laura Hayes

My gelding, Desco Music, who is 15 this year and has three or four endurance
seasons and two years LSD before that, gets 'rings' or actual breaks in the
horn along the coronary band after some rides.  He is never lame from it,
and we can not seem to connect it to hard roads, heat, speed or other
outside factors.  It is very disconcerting to me, but since he appears to
suffer no ill effects, other than cosmetic, I guess I am not willing to
retire him because of it. Any thoughts?
