My mare acquired a stifle injury (atleast we think) September 3rd.
She is not even pasture sound anymore.
Right now we're trying to get her ATLEAST pasture sound, but due to her previous injuries (left front coffin bone fracture + left hock injury. 2011) my vet said that she will never be sound for riding again and that The best we can do is hope that she MAY one day be pasture sound.
Right now she's in a VERY small turnout, 11x11 and being hand walked daily. I can hand walk her for about 15 minutes without her going three legged lame and even walk over 4 or 5 ground poles at a time without an issue...
What are your experiences with stifle injuries?
