    All I see is a green vertical line, but if I click on it your picture and remarks about gut sounds appear.
    Good idea to observe normal sounds to recognize a difference if the horse is unwell. Thank you for this advice.

    One of the interesting points was using the ‘four examinations’ of Traditional Chinese Medicine and that we don’t need to be a vet of TCM practitioner – it really is, across the board, listening to our horses in every way.

    Just off to buy a stethoscope!

    I always used just my ear pressed firmly against their body with my hand covering the ‘off ear.’ I start up high, and then slowly ‘work my way down.’

    Great article though!!!!

    That sounds a good way Chuck, it is about knowing what you are listening for and at what time of the day too.

    AGREE 100%!

    ALWAYS good to check now and then so we know what is ‘normal.’ 😉
