    I think the Chiro might help too. I'm actually going to give that a try with my mare as she's had lameness issues and whether or not it will resolve that (she has other issues too like EMS and previous laminitis with slight rotation in front and undiagnosed lameness in her left hind), I'm relatively certain that she's off at her withers. She has very similar symptoms as previously mentioned. I've had the chiro suggested a couple times and was trying to find a good one.

    Chiro came out last night. Red was out in his right poll and right wither. Same exact places he was out in March. Not major issues but he said if I continue to ride him this year (Depending on what the vet says) then to have him checked in 3 or 4 weeks. Which I will if I end up bring able to ride him.

    Curious to hear what your vet has to say. Just was able to get the # for the referral chiro so calling him tomorrow morning.

    Had my mare adjusted yesterday and she was out in several places. Definitely noticed some improvement but as to the lameness we will see. She's still crossfiring but I understand it can take them a week or so to realize they can use those parts again without pain. Has your vet been out yet and if so what's the verdict?

    I had his shoes reset last night by the farrier, and I showed him the video of what Red is doing, and he's rather stumped too and wants to know what my vet comes up with.

    I will update you guys when I know, tomorrow.

    Back from the vet:

    She thinks that Red has a mild case of locking stifle on his right hind. It doesn't ever lock fully, but it catches every now and then. She had me hold my own hand over his right stifle and I could feel it when it did it at the walk. We did x-rays just to be sure nothing was going on arthritis-wise, and the x-rays look great.

    So I'm relieved that it isn't anything serious, and hopefully will be something he "grows out" of. I'm going to try to do lots of hill riding until the snow/ice appears for winter, and then pick it back up as soon as footing is safe in the spring. She said there's the possibility we might have to do surgery in the spring to scar it together, but at this point, she highly doubts we will have to do that because it is not that bad of locking stifle.

    It makes sense that it is his right hind that is bothering him, because he turns a barrel worse to the right, where he should be bringing that right hind underneath himself (but he can't).

    So glad its not too serious and sounds like prognosis is good!
