So I've just now gotten to the point with my mustang colt that I can safely take him out on walks around the property. He steps out a bit more when we're in a new area, and I was noticing a crack, crack, cracking. At first it sounded like joints popping, but when I turned and watched him while walking backwards, I realized that he's overreaching and clipping his front hooves with his back hooves.
My question is, will this negatively affect him in any way? He's due to be trimmed... does this mean he might not clip himself as much once he's been trimmed? He's about a year and a half old right now, is it possible that he'll "outgrow" this overreaching?
