He's chesnut, but very flashy. He's more of a copper colour and in winter he gets to be a liver chestnut. haha he changes.

He could have injured his shoulder after a jump.
Before stopping your horse for months at a time, or spending a bunch of money on expensive tests, call a chiropractor. If he can't help, then stop your horse.

it's funny that you mentioned that because I just called my chiropractor to get him checked out.

Well recently we decided that since he was going to be in the stall for so long that we could at least take him out for a walk and grass everyday while drugged. So at least he's getting out. I'm currently at school so i'm not able to see him but every 2 weeks, when i drive back home.

I second the chiro idea. A good chiro can give great insight. From your description it sounds like it's preimarily a check ligament issue. Have you tought about trying magnets? They can work wonders. Also considder swimming him. It's a great way to get them safe exercise and can help keep them sane while not in work. We have a few horses that we race out of the pool. No track time at all...just swim, race, repeat!

well the chiropractor came out and spent hours working on him. a bunch of things were out of alignment but his scapula was the worst apparently. It didn't fix his lameness, but the chiropractor agrees with me- My horse's muscles are extremely atrophied. The chiropractor also thinks that my horse also may have a nerve entrapment in the leg.
