Hock Curbs

My 4 year old gelding has got them.
Please can I have as much information as possible.
The vet is the owner of the practice and said that it should not effect him as he thinks it's congenital.
I'm so scared for my baby... please can I have as much information as possible.
Thanks x

Is your horse OTTB or OTSTBD? Are the curbs new or old? Can you post a pic?

Check out this website: HorseAdvice.com Equine & Horse Advice: Curb or Curby Hocks: Tarsal Plantar Desmitis in Horses

I hope that explains it a little!

What do these mean?
He's only a 4 year old, and hasn't been broken long.
They're ever so slight and do not come up on picutres.
He's a TB X Irish Draught and is registered as an Irish Sports Horse.

I don't know much about hock curbs but I know you can get boots for them, I don't know it this acts like a brace and prevents further 'curbing' or they attempt to normalise the leg. If your vet says not to worry then I wouldnt worry. Maybe get soft hock boots to protect his hocks, if he has a extra bit, then he might catch it of rub it.
