I recently bought a 13 year old Quarter Horse gelding w/ a calcium deposit on his left knee. I've been trying to do some research on them on horses, but im coming up mostly empty handed. I've been told that he hasn't had any major issues w/ his knee, and so far he hasn't. Sometimes when we are going downhill he will slightly step differently, not limping, but just different.
I don't do any competing or anything w/ him. He's just a trail horse.
Does anyone own or know of a horse w/ a calcium deposit?? Do they have any long term effects on horses?? Should I be giving him any supplements??
Any info would be great!!!
