Okay, so my 10 year old Quarter Horse mare has stiffness issues. When I take her out of her stall in the morning she is soo stiff on just one of her front legs and her other front leg is a little stiff. She is out to pasture all day and then I bring her in for night or vice versa. Before I work her, I always lunge her and she loosens up a lot after that but she still is kind of stiff.
I was told to put front shoes on her but I don't know how that will help her joints, yes maybe she will be more balanced but I don't know how that will help her joint problems. I would like to try some joint supplements for about a month and see if that works for her. Have any suggestions for joint supplements??
And do you think the joint supplements will help her enough that I will not need to put shoes on her? Please give me some advice on this topic!
