Thanks for all the input... That was my main concern is the long term outcome.

The vet xrayed both hocks.. Both were "pretty dang fused" as he put it.. However he only flexed positive on the right. We also xrayed the right stifle as we both thought the lameness looked higher up and that was clean. His owners had him on legend but he's been off of it for about 6-7 months and he has been fine. He slipped out in the pasture and we think he did something there.. possibly with his back as he seemed a bit ouchy.

We started jumping him about 2 months ago and he is a beautiful hunter... I'm just stumped on what to do about his saleability...

Awww that's sweet. I hate that people view some of these things as death sentences! What gets me is that people will pay $70 a month for Cosequin or some other feed through joint supplement but balk the second you mention Legend or other cheaper injections people freak out..
