Hi. I got on my 17 year old gelding a couple nights ago for the first time this year. Just poked around the arena nice and easy. But at the jog he's got a limp on his front end. I tried to work it out a little thinking he just needed to loosen up, but it persisted. Checked his feet and they look marvelous, shoes were put on about 2 weeks ago. Nothing is warm or hot to the touch and I don't see any swelling. He's typically pretty clumsy too. We've gone down on more than one occasion due to him tripping. I'm wondering if I should start him on a glucosomine/joint supplement to see if it clears up?? I'm sure bute would make it stop for now but I would like to fix this long term of course.
Open to ideas! Thanks you!
