    If you read the link - a club foot is genetic. Your mare has another issue - back, hip or shoulder.

    Thanks you! ^^ I was just going to say that. There is no preventative treatment to stop a club foot happening, a club foot is genetic, if this is something new it's more likely a soundness issue.

    It's not new, but because it's not noticeable, I didn't realize she even had it. My farrier pointed it out. She's had it since I got her.
