My aunts gelding is a back breaker and rotator cuff tearer! He's got thrush in the right front foot and is very sore (it's gotten much better now though). So everytime we go to pick up the left front foot, he resists so much because he doesn't want to put any pressure on the right foot. The hardest part is getting it up, that's the part that hurts your rotator cuff (muscle in your shoulder). If you get it up than you have to worry about him lifting up the right and expecting you to hold his weight and left front foot, that's the back breaker!!! Eventually he gives it to you. It helps when I go right in there and hit the back of his leg with an open hand and just immediately expect him to pick it up all the while leaning on him. He gives it to me than.
