Lame? *video*

Candy is off, but I suck at guessing which leg. Can you help me?

She was a bit better today (in the video)... Vet comes in Thursday.

Sorry for a crappy video, I had to film it by myself + I don't have a round pen.

It would be a lot more helpful if you trotted both directs. But from the video it looks like the left front, but it isn't bad at all. She barely looks off.

Watch her head when she steps down. It'll bob up on the lame limb.

Sorry, can't tell much from the video. She is off, but I can't decide which leg. I do have to say that your pony is adorable, however!

Both hind legs look suspicious with the left maybe a bit more. I also agree that something is going on with the left front but I think it is higher up in the shoulder.

Right hind. She's dragging it a bit.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

That was my initial thought, rt hind, but wanted to see what other more eagle eyed folks would see.

Thanks for help everybody :)

I'm sorry for the bad video, I took 5, but only that had a horse in it

Mom came with me today and we went to our neighbour's round pen (I didn't know if neighbours are comfortable with me taking videos on their property, so I didn't)

We think she is lame on both hind legs, depending on which direction we're going.

She also stands like this a lot:


She was always standing like that when she was on a steep hill, but in the last month I noticed it's more and more often. She stands like that when she's resting, eating, when she stops, even if I rode her and stop, she would put her leg like this immediatly. She doesn't prefer any leg.

Back problems?

And about 2 months ago, when it was one of that rare days that I went to my neighbour's round pen to lunge her, she was having problems with keeping correct lead in the hind when cantering. She started right and got a wrong lead in the hind in the corner then fixed it and lost it again...

Yes, I'd go with back, stifle, or "general neurological" based on that photo.

I also think it is hind end, right side more than left. Is it possible she may have injured her hip. Just thinking about her standing splayed like she does could possibly be because she is hurt up higher and it is more comfortable. I would have to think standing like that she is trying to relieve pressure up in hip or back somewhere. Just a guess though.
