I was offered a chance to work this TB/Gelderland cross. But the next week after that. I met up with the owner and she said that the horse is now lame because of a fat pocket around the femur,stifle joint (it is a big fat pocket) and now he is to be a companion pet...
I know she doesnt know that much about horses and health she's kinda nooby. So im thinking the b/o trainer has told her whats going on about the fat pocket.
I've never come across a fat pocket on my horses. So I don't know to much about them. I did try to google it and see if I could find an article saying they can be lame from fat pockets. Has anyone had a horse become lame from a fat pocket? Or is this a case on the location of it?
Would exercise help? When I watched him run around in the arena he looked normal. What do you guys think?
