Not being a "professional" I can't claim such an opinion... :-)

There is no doubt that urethral extensions, when correctly performed, can assist with a reduction of, or even prevention of, urine pooling.

The ethical question arises as to why there is a urine pooling situation in the first place, and if that problem is as a result of a potentially hereditary conformational issue, and if it is suitable to possibly perpetuate that hereditary conformational defect.

How's that for not having an opinion?

Thanks, I have found with a lot of older broodmares their shelves tend to drop. Never thought of it as hereditary, just age and usage.

With some older mares, there is no doubt that the conformation changes simply due to wear and tear, but I am always conscious of the possibly heritable factor... not perhaps an issue in a 20 yo mare that's had 15 foals, but in a 6 yo that's had one... maybe!

We are talking the 20 year old version. A very expensive version!
