Pointing toes in back - injury/hocks?
My horse is completely sound under saddle, but when he stands, he weight bears on one or other other hind foot, and "points" the toe of the other. We recently had his hocks injected and I thought it might help, but he still stands the same way. He is also resistant to letting me clean his hind hooves. Does the way he is standing indicate an injury or soreness - or is it simply the way he chooses to stand?
