Well I think she would be fine walking. When all the other horses are runing around acting crazy she just stands there unless the the top horse comes over by her and makes her move around. The vet said we she would end up not using the one back leg as much causing her to be lame then it would put stess on the other leg and she would end up not being able to walk. About 2 weeks after the infection was gone she still limped a little then after a month she was fine. But we havent done any work to her. She's just a pature pet. That happened in september 2005. I could probably walk her around the yard and down the driveway. But I will have to be carefull, we have snow and ice on the drive way. I wish I hav the money, I would have the vet come out and do x-rays.
I am going grocery shopping today so I will up some corn oil.
Razeal she sounds like your 12yo gelding, but she does not have a respitory problem. She probably needs work. Thanks for the help
