Re: Ive been diagnosed with navicular!!

Category: General Horse Questions


Hello, i would love to say that Prince is going to be ok with time but unfortunatley time is not the healer in these cases. If you look after him and use him as a light hack there should be no reason why he should not go on to a ripe old age, im afraid competition work is out of the question if you wish to have him around for years to come. His life span will equally depend on how quickly the navicular bone deteriorates,the main thing now is to make sure his feet are looked after with corrective shoeing. i wish you both luck, and you ve done exactly the right thing with the vet and the farrier.
