My 3yr old paint is dragging herback feet to the point were they are squared. I would like to know possible reasons why she is doing this. I round her hooves out about every 2 weeks myself but it doesnt seem to make a difference. The farrier will be coming out this week but I refuse to get shoes put on unless it is ab****ely necessary. I think She is both slightly sickle hocked and slightly cow hocked and id also like you oppinion on that as well. I know this puts more pressure on her joints I just want another persons oppinion. I have tried trotting ground poles but it hasnt helped any. Sorry bout the pics.
Could it be:
