    Might as well post them so others can benefit too!

    I do his stifle stretches whenever I am out there. The vet showed me. One is just basically holding the leg back (as if you were a farrier) and the other is holding the leg forward and up toward the belly (also stretches the hock with the stifle).

    .....although I didn't do his stretches today when I buzzed out there at lunch because I didn't exactly want to get my khakis dirty.

    You got any other stretches besides that?

    I should do some other more often (and I'm going to make myself) but I also stretch his front legs forward, stretch the shoulder (by letting him relax the leg and rest his toe, and not sure of the name of the stretch but I call it his front end yoga pose, because you pick up a front foot and bend it toward the opposite knee.

    I got showed all those last year when I had Red get a massage. She gave me a few other pointers too, besides the stretches.

    There is another stretch! But its rather difficult and you MUST have the correct body position so you don't get hurt, and I really don't want just anyone to be attempting it and possibly getting hurt, hence why I will PM it to you.
