I'm sure he had arthritis in general but the worst was his front right knee. By far. I could always pick all his hooves... but that one? It took a lot of convincing and I had to pull it straight out, barely off the ground. The general barn farrier (I could not be there at the time) almost put him on the hard ground to trim his hooves. If I were there I would've killed him. Needless to say he was fired, my new farrier was so kind and patient and he used a sort of "Pedi- Paws" for horses on that hoof that made it way easier for him to lift and still get his trim done!
