New horse dragging left hind only limping at a walk long hooves
Ok so.... I just got an abused mare from someone, too much for him to handle. She does not stand tied for anything absolutely freaks out. I have had her since Monday and yesterday she stood a good 20 min with no lounging or work! Yay!
Ok here is the bad thing. Her back feet are pretty bad. I will post a pic. She just started limping on her back hind 2days ago and it is only at a walk. She drags her back left moreso than her back right. She is splay footed and I thought she was cow hocked pretty bad but I think it is just her feet. Her feet are flared on only the outside wall. Could she be limping and dragging her feet because they are so long and over grown? The farrier will be out next week to check them out but I am just wondering if it could be her feet messing her up. Any replies are welcomed! Thanks so much!!
She is around 7 years old and is a quarter horse
