"OSPHOS® is an injectable bisphosphonate solution for the control of clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome in horses four years of age and older. OSPHOS® inhibits bone resorption by binding to calcium phosphate crystals (inhibiting their formation and dissolution) and by exerting direct cellular effects on osteoclasts. Dechra's OSPHOS® has the unique advantage of intramuscular injection and is a ready-to-use solution that does not require mixing or reconstitution. In clinical trials evaluating 86 horses, clinical improvement is most evident at 2 months post-treatment with 74.7% of the horses experiencing improvement in their lameness score. For horses that initially respond to OSPHOS®, it may be readministered at 3-to 6-month intervals based on recurrence of clinical signs. The improvement seen in lameness scores during the OSPHOS® field trial was achieved in the absence of concurrent corrective shoeing, pain medication or NSAIDs." Dechra
Tildren® (tiludronate) is a product which implements a similar mode-of-action. Tildren, however, requires a 90-minute intravenous infusion protocol for administration.Top

The average horse produces nearly nine tons of manure a year!
"What's happening (in a gassy horse) is whatever feed is getting to the colon (is producing) a substantial amount of gas. Generally when gas is produced it is because feed is being digested rapidly and the bacterial population in the gut has shifted. Gas is a byproduct of that, so it's really all about the 'bugs' (inside the gut).

Kayaking and Horsing Merge
Horses and kayaking have many similarities. Balance, personal growth (intellectual, physical and mental), exercise, exploration, enjoying nature, endless learning, sharing experiences with a partner or friends, safety concerns, etc., are all a part of kayaking just as they are for horse-back-riding. In fact, Bill and I have started our kayaking paddling the many rivers and creeks where we used to ride. We see these areas from a water view instead of a land view--it's fascinating!
Index/Kayaking (Many Articles)
Many of our horse trails went along rivers, bays and creeks. Bill and I now kayak and follow many of the waterways we rode.
