    Well, I finally put my finger on the breed I thought I was seeing. Paso Fino. Only because he really reminds me of one of my friends horses, if you painted him black he would totally be Felix! I don't think that's very accurate though, he just reminds me of Felix who is a Paso!

    I loove the QH/Morgan idea and hadn't even though of that! My first horse was a QH/Morgan!

    Here's two from today just because he's adorable!




    Sometimes when he stands he turns his non-lame leg inwards. I really hope that's just cause he's lame! And it's not all the time. He seems to want to "spin" on that leg because he doesn't want to put weight on the other.

    I freakin love him!

    Definitely looks QH, I'd also bet he has some Morgan. I'm seeing Paso Fino as well. I have a Paso and his face reminds me of mine's face, a bit different though. You can go to Arthur's page to see my Paso for resemblance. He's such a cutie! What's his name?

    Sorry to double post, but he doesn't have shoes on from looking at the pic. I wonder if he's been in a soft, muddy pasture for a while and is reacting to the blacktop on his bare hooves? None of my current horses have shoes because they don't need them, but I NEVER take them on blacktop, cement, concrete, etc unless to cross a street or the driveway.

    I see a lot of Quarter in him too, and at first I thought Morgan also and yet his head really reminds me of the Welsh Pony at our stable who also is of the same coloring so now I'm thinking maybe a whole lot of Quarter with a dash of Welsh Pony?? Does anybody else see it?

    Not a problem about double posting! I haven't had the vet look at him yet, so any suggestions as to what may going on are also welcome.

    He doesn't have shoes and his hooves are in pretty bad need of a trimming. They are in good shape otherwise though, a little "rounded" (for lack of a better term). That is actually a gravel driveway, though you can't really tell in the picture. I wouldn't even really call it gravel, we don't have stones, but coal ashes. They are relatively small pieces, kinda like tiny gravel. And not real hard. The area we were standing in is just REALLY solidified/old gravel area, it's not cement or blacktop.

    Besides that, he does this in grass too. It does seem worse in the barn on the concrete though.

    I've seen a lot of horses in my lifetime, we frequently take in ones that just need their feet trimmed and some weight put on and find t hem new homes. I've seen a lot of lame horses. Never had I had one who shows NO other signs of being lame besides the limp/head bob thing. There is no heat, no swelling.

    This morning I thought I felt a little bit of warmth, but it wasn't significant and I had applied Liniment so I wasn't sure if that's what I was feeling.

    It's mysterious. I didn't give him any Bute until today. I wanted to gauge how badly lame he was. He has gotten better, so I started him on a little Bute to give him some relief and we'll see what happens. If he's not showing significant improvement by the time I wean him off, we'll be calling the vet for some xray's. I am no vet, but I am a tech - and I see *nothing* with the naked eye.

    The first two days he was "stretching" a lot - is anybody familiar with this happening with a lame horse? In my mind, I thought maybe a muscle?

    Hmm maybe. Can you post a video of him just walking in the grass or cement?

    Since he originally came from an auction before somebody saved him and then called me to take him, I have no idea what he was called before.

    I named him Floyd

    Yes, I can try to get a video before the Bute really kicks in!

    Here is a video. I tried to go get a new one, but I actually sprained my own ankle last night and couldn't even get my boots on my foot. Looks like i'm not going back out to the barn today, I don't know why it's gotten so much worse than this morning.

    So I uploaded this one, it was taken his first day here. I would say he has improved about 50%, before even having bute. He's now willing to put weight on the other leg but is still favoring it.

    ^^ I agree. That looks like it could be a pretty serious tendon or fetlock injury. He could even have a very severe abcess in there somewhere. I think a vet would be a good call.
