Dear Dr. Short Legs,


My name is Sarena and I'm a black Arabian. My problem is my owner Hayley wants to do a show with me but I can't jump!


Yours Truly,

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

I am a very odd horse. My ears are too big, my legs are too short, I don't like apples, and so on. How do I know if I really am a horse? What if I'm a pony or something?

Sincerely,

WHAT AM I???

Dear Dr Short Legs ,

I don't know what is wrong with me -  I am always tired . . . please help me, I can barely walk.

Sincerely,

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

I am a horse with short legs - just like you!  Some of my friends say I am not a horse, but a pony.  I don't understand since my mom and dad are horses!  My friends say I was probably adopted but I tell them it can't be true, since other REAL horses also have short legs (just like you).  What do you think?  How do I tell if I am a pony or a horse with short legs?

Desperately waiting for your response,

Little legs

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

I am a white horse, but when I go for rides in the forest my white coat keeps getting spotted with mud and it annoys me.  Burrs also get stuck to my hair, and since I am a white horse they are very noticeable.  What can I do to clean my coat and get rid of burrs?

Yours truly,

Riding Mess

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

I am a horse who likes to be very clean, but lately I have been attracting flies.  They are very annoying and pesky, and some of them make my skin itch.  How do I keep these annoying pests away?

Yours hopefully,

Fly Attractor

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

I have an embarrassing problem that I can't seem to stop:  every time I go out for rides I, ahem, go to the bathroom.  I try to wait until I get home, but, well, I just can't.  Is this normal?

Signed,

Horse Man Ure

22-Oct-2008 Dear Horse Man Ure,

It is ok, you should not be embarrassed.  Most horses go to the bathroom in the arena.  If it really, really, really, REALLY embarrasses you, try not eating until you get home.

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

I am very frustrated. My horse won't eat anything I feed it! I've even tried feeding it apples and sugar cubes, (its favourite treats) but nothing will work! What can I do?

Yours Truly,

Hungry Horse

19-Oct-2008 Dear Hungry Horse,

I would suggest seeing a vet as your horse has the symptoms of colic.  Hope it's not too late as this can be serious, but I think you will be ok. One more suggestion: put some mint in his oats and give him a good brush.

Yours truly,


Dr Short Legs
 

Dear Dr. Short Legs,

My horse never listens to me.  What can I do to make him listen?

Sincerely,

Frustrated with Horses
17-Oct-2008 Dear frustrated with horses:

There are plenty of ways to make a horse listen to you. The 2 most popular ones are:

1. Give him a tap with your leg

2. Get a crop and tap him on the shoulder.

If this doesn't work I would suggest you sell your horse.

Yours,

Dr. Short Legs.
