Not all hock injections are bad for the horse, sometimes they are just replacing lost joint fluid in older horses...that being said, twice yearly hock injections in a six year old are a big red flag.....that is really quite young to be needing that sort of maintenance...I would consider Adequan or Legend more in the preventative category than actually injecting the joint.
Make sure you get a PPE done before purchasing!
