check ligament release

I've got a 6 y/o Rocky who is doing completely fine!! He had a surgical porcedure back in 2005 due to his rapid growth, he had tendon contracture in both of his front legs. The surgery was on the inferior check ligament, it was transected (cut) to release the tension so as to allow his heals to fully extend.

I want to say it again, he's doing fine, no issue but I'm curious if this might set him up for problems when he gets older?

We had a mare that we considered doing this to, and we were told that there wouldn't be any kind of long term side effects or causes. But this was for this particular mare.. I'm not sure about your horse. Did you ask your vet about it?

Yep. You ever had someone talk for 20 min. Just to say that they didn't know something.

I'm just curious, I've never seen it discussed before so I thought I'd toss the question out just to pole the audience.
