I'm not sure if this is exactly where this should be but hopefully it's close enough. =)
So I was wondering if I should go find Lacey some sort of leg protective gear since I've noticed that she seems to have a predisposition towards hitting her hind legs (pretty much in her fetlock/pastern area) against each other (or something because sometimes she's ended up with scrapes on the front of her pasterns). She just got shoes on (her hooves were just cracking and getting chunks taken out like crazy) and so I'm kinda wondering if I should get her something in case the shoes make her more dangerous to herself...
She has pretty nice straight hind legs so I'm not really sure why she hits herself but she evidently does....
Also, if you recommend I get her a little something something, what brand should I get? What type of shin-dig?
I've used SMB's before and liked how they worked, but Lacey seems to hit herself more in the pastern and I'm not really sure something that starts at the fetlock is going to do much help, yknow?
Also, what size do you figure she'll be? She's an Arab so she's rather light boned but more old school bone wise than the current super tiny Arab bone-liness... I was thinking maybe a medium?
Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzaner gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat
Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat
Rest peacefully, Lacey.
