Could she have arthritis?
My horse has been acting stiff and acting like it`s hard to turn,has an awkward gait, and isn`t near as entergetic as when we got her. We`ve tried to give her the midicine called mute or muce or something in her food and she refused to eat it.She has no hot spots anymore (she did about 2 months ago when I thought she could be lame). I don`t hear any kind of crunching or cracking and she isn`t resenting movement. I tried riding her for about 10 min and she was really shifty, sometimes I could feel her feet being awkward sometimes it felt fine. I tried to trot but all I got has a small jog-trot and I didnt want her to hurt herself just in case. I think if she does have arthritis it`s in her front left foot. When we pick her feet out they don't touch her body which i`ve heard was a symptom but i`m not sure...
Refusal to lift front left hoof
Acting up with farrier (Never happened with her she`s always good)
Bringing her back feet up to far
Tripping alot and Struggling not to trip
