    This really looks like locking stifle, coming out of the canter.....

    Last one....
    She CAN run, it's just when she slows down....everything falls apart.

    Really?..locking stifle? Maybe she has more than one thing happening? I am particularly wondering how she throws her right hind leg/hip out after she slows from trot to walk....

    I will try and get video walking up and down a hill this weekend. Chiro thought her cadence was just waaaay off.

    Thanks guys.

    As far as hay bags go, I highly recommend this one. My 10 month old colt has had it for a couple months now and it's in perfect condition even though he absolutely abuses it. The description says it only holds 2 flakes, but I can stuff almost 20 pounds of hay in there, which is about 4 flakes of my coastal hay. It really slows down their consumption so they eat longer on less hay. It's great!

    Thanks Kayella! No problems with lips getting sores or anything? I think I may try this one too. I double bagged the two large hole ones I had today...really need the smaller hole ones.

    Ok, so is her RH the main problem? And the first video, right at about 47 seconds....is that what your mainly concerned with? I believe, if it is locking stifles, there is a very simple and easy procedure that will fix it. I know the procedure, just can't remember if it is for locking stifles. You need to send these videos (esp the first one) to a few vets. I HIGHLY recommend Oregon State University. Dr. Mckenzie is AMAZING!!! And so incredibly helpful. You should try calling vets from around your state and asking their opinion and if they wouldn't mind looking at the vids for you.

    Nope, no sore lips. The holes are just big enough for him to pull strands of hay through without any issues. :)

    Those look like regular hay nets. Am I wrong?
