Typically founder effects the front feet first and leaves the horse in a position where they are leaning back onto the hind legs to get weight off the front.
I've always heard it is risky to feed haylage to horses due to the higher risk of botulism. I'm really worried when you say he is off feed and its effecting his hind limbs as I was told once that are two symptoms to look for in an adult horse. I really hope this is not the case and its a much simpler and easy to fix issue.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
