    Yes. Add the parking out funny when standing relaxed.

    This is true. I grew up in a Morgan show barn where literally every horse including weanlings (for in hand) were trained to park out. None of them did it on their own in the pasture or in their stalls.. unless of course it was a male urinating but that is very different. They would do it with a rider or when cued in hand. Standing camped out like that with no prompting is not normal, even for a horse trained to do it..
    Horsecrazy, I am not commenting on anything else, but in your OP you say that he does it on his own.. then you backtrack and say it's only been a couple of times.. but even in your standing still shot of him in his field, he is doing it.. I really do urge you to get it checked out. If it is an underlying spinal issue or other bone issue, riding him could be seriously exacerbating it, and you could potentially end up with emergency vet bills versus just a standard check up.. I figure it makes more sense to pay a smaller fee now than to end up with a potentially huge one in the near future.

    Your horse is grade, and lame. I don't know why you post asking for opinions just so you can disagree with them. If you don't value anyone's opinions and feel confident in your own knowledge, then don't ask for the opinions.

    Maybe as you don't want to pay for the vet, you could email the video to them and ask if the horse looks sore?

    If you watch the video carefully, this horse has a problem in both stifles and something extra going wrong in her right hind. In general, this horse moves short behind, doesn't even come close to tracking up, and sinks a little in the hip each time he takes a step. It's signifigant that he does not travel straight, but prefers to carry his head and shoulders to the right and on a separate track of his hips and hindquarters.

    In addition, he has a pronounced flinch each time he brings his right hind forward and steps off.

    I suspect ongoing stifle and/or hip problems on both sides, more pronounced on the right.

    I am not a vet, and I don't play one on TV, but that is what I see as a moderately experienced observer.

    I am taking into consideration that the horse is green, unshod behind and working on hard, uneven ground. However, the things I observe stay consistent despite gait and direction and cannot be completely dismissed.

    Thank you maura, for doing what nobody else has attempted! All this time I was saying "I don't see the soreness,etc" and you have actually pointed out specifics. That helps a lot! That is much nicer than me being bashed and saying "why am I starting threads asking opinions"..umm...I haven't posted any more nor have I kept asking what breed, I HAVE been trying to point out that I can't see anything off. Instead of bashing me why don't you people try to point something out???Jeesh. Thank you maura!

    Parking out can be a sign of hoof pain (this was the first symptom of my gelding's navicular) or more often back pain.

    Jeesh indeed, must be all our faults that this is the only one of three threads that has not been deleted or massively edited by the mods.

    Everyone has said there is something going on with the rear end of the horse. Your mare looks worse by the way, in the video you posted previously. Close to really limping lame, but dead lame all the same. I would suggest that you don't know as much about lameness as you think you do.

    My mare has nothing to do with this. Yes, everyone has said something was off but nobody could pinpoint what exactly, so nobody was really helping me. But btw, Chanti was lame because she hurt her tendon, which is why even now she's still being rested. She's not lame now but tendon injuries take a long time to heal. I'm not nearly as stupid as everyone seems to think.

    We've tested his feet, he's not ouchy at all, and he doesn't show any indication of it being navicular. He's also never shown any symptoms other than parking out at odd times of back pain.
