You can actually do a flexoin test on your own. Do some research, learn all about it, then have a friend help you out. It "should" tell you pretty quick if there is a soft tissue issues in that leg. Then, if you know there is a problem, you will have information for the vet rather than a vague description.

A quick search on youtube found me these two... but I watched with the sound off, so I don't know what they were saying. I really like the second one - but again, I only watched, did not listen.

My horse has started dragging his one hoof at a walk/trot and it's definitely not him. We have narrowed it down to a back/leg problem. So I'm sure if he's not just being lazy there is some sort of issue lying underneath it all.

Maybe try having the chiro out. That's what I'm going to do for my guy first before running and calling the vet because he isn't in pain nor is he limping.

Hope you figure it out. Good luck!

I'm thinking his pelvis may have rolled to one side causing a leg length issue and dragging just the one toe... a job for a vet / back man I'd say x
