    Help with hip

    Well we just got Jack home monday and he is such a good horse. We just have one problem, he limps on his rear right leg. Thought at first could be a stone bruise or from his feet going so long with out a trim. Well the farrier came out yesterday trimmed him up said he has great hard feet, and nothing wrong there. I told him about his limping and he took his hand and with two fingers ran them down his back, when he got to his back end Jack kinda slumped a bit, farrier said "Oh his hip is out". ???? Could that be true??? Is that all you would see is a limp (well he has a harder time crossing over with that hip too)?? Farrier then told me it may put it self back in place with a little light work??? Is that what I should do...... if not..... what??? Thanks a bunch for your help!!!

    I think it's time to call in a horse chiropractor to adjust his hip, most likley he'll find other thing's and adjust them also, don't be worried if you horse seems to be in off for about 2 days after that, trust me me after that it's like having a new horse
