Re: [RC] fever rings - Laura Hayes

Thanks, but to see the actual horn broken really bothers me!  My husband and
I were just talking about it this morning, as Music got horizontal cracks
from the National ride, and I did not ride hard, the weather was good, and
there were not alot of roads....I feel like I am abusing him!  We campaigned
a horse years ago named Rushcreek Kapper, who did the same thing - just

My mare got rings from the OD. We did as much hard road riding as we
could to simulate the concussion training for it but she still got rings
- not lame. We got rings from going out West in 2001 - was it the
trailer ride or the rides we did? I have no idea.  I have noticed minor
rings from a lot of things. We got rings for West Nile. We will probably
get rings from this cold weather we are having in FL this year. A lot of
things can bring on rings. Unless there is something else, I wouldn't
worry much about it.

My gelding, Desco Music, who is 15 this year and has three or four
seasons and two years LSD before that, gets 'rings' or actual breaks in
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?
