Chevaux, she is very comfortable to ride, smooth trot, rocking canter. and she picks up her feet too, never drags them. i was planning on training her in dressage and hacking and having her for kids or small adults to compete on her and use her (im a bit too tall to do anything with her really).
In the 2 years i've owned her she hasn't progressed and it hasn't gotten worse. in some photo's and when she stands up square it doesn't look as bad as it does in other photo's.. She's been on and off in work since i've had her.
She's NEVER gone lame! not once! which is also why im confused =/
had a different vet out a few days ago doing her Hendra Vaccination and now i have 2 possible ages for her.. (her branding looks like an 8 (as in 2008) but then kinda looks like it's been branded over with a 2 (as in 2002), so im screwed on knowing how old she really is. one vet says she's around 5yo, and the other says she's aroun 8-10.... -.-
4horses, she has a raised scar on the front of her hind left fetlock that does give it that effect but both her back pasterns are slightly swallen (kinda like their just filled with a bit of fluid) but have been since i got her. and they've never flared up or gotten worse with or without work..
Is there a chance that it could stay how it is? because it hasn't changed when she was in full work (in a sand arena) and doing some jumping?
If you look at the pictures and draw a straight line down from the front of her pasterns to her hoof, her weight is still bearing on her hoof at the heel, not completely behind it...
