My 15hh anglo gelding is really funny with his back legs. He overreaches, leaves his back legs behind him when grazing etc.
My problem with it is picking his feet out. I can do his front ones fine, he can be a little stropey. But his back ones... he does not pick them up, he used to, I don't know what happend :S. He doesnt get annoyed or try to kick, he just seems completely oblivious to me and what I am trying to do.
I have tryed giving him a treat and a pat after every foot and that worked for a while, until he got bored. I have also tryed taking him out of the stable where he's doesnt have any hay to distract him while im doing it, that worked for a while but only when someone is there to hold him (he unties himself).
I am worried that he may contract thrush or worse if I can't look after his feet, he may already have it but how am I going to treat it when he wont pick his feet up?
Any tips on what I could try next?
