I watched the video, read the first page and then the last two pages. It seems like you are going in a completely different direction - but it looks like stifle injuries to me.

Not sure...I'm computer illiterate.

If you can go to You Tube directly and search Snickers EPSM...It will be the one that says....EPSM Snickers trot in roundpen.

That worked
It might sound stupid.....im still seeing the lack of " connection" between hip/ butt and legs.
She looks like she is trying to keep her knees together while trotting, all movement is below the stifles. Emphasis on " looks like". Lack of strength in the large muscles makes more and more sense, tho.
And is she ever so sweet....

EPSM results not back yet. Even if they come back neg I will stay on this diet for a few months and see what happens. I am glad to see that she now is able to at least hold her trot, unlike before, before giving up or bucking. To me, she is controlling this exercise better even though to you it may look rediculous. Could also be her maturing, idk. I just want to stay on one path for awhile to get a good feel if there is actually improvement with consistency. If months from now, if she hasn't improved, I will go another route.

Yeah, it takes time. Besides, you have one competent voice already. Just keep her updated. She will see the progress, since she doesn't see Snickers every day and knows best as to what to look for

I agree....just keeping it real. I really don't feel, at this point, that she doesn't know where her feet are, so I'm saying it's not neurological, for now.

Dr. Valentine did get back to me and say to stick to the diet. It could even take up to a year for the body to change. So, that is what I'm doing. Good news is they are eating fine now that I've eliminated the soaked alfalfa cubes.....(Snickers is still boss mare...lol). It rained here the last two days, so we have mud. I could only ride them both around the ranch at the walk pretty much. A few of us are supposed to take a ride to the beach today. I think I will ride Snickers.
