More on DSLD, Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Desmitis

After my last post on DSLD I got an email telling me the reference from Dr Deb Bennett was written before the latest study. That email went on to state that no horse with dropped fetlocks should ever be bred. The inference was because of the information in the study I had referenced.

While I appreciate someone trying to be sure I understand the information, I can't help but be frustrated because it is clear the person has not really done her homework. The scientific evidence does not conclude nor support that all horses with dropped fetlocks should be excluded from the breeding pool.
