Soft Feet & Lameness - All The Time!!!!
So my mare Annie came off the track and she steps down totally flat on her frogs. She is so tender footed it's no wonder she didn't perform well on the turf.
First, she had to have all four feet with silicone pads and then normal shoes as well. STILL she tip toes her way around. God forbid I take the shoes off. She will literally lay down in the pasture and not move.
I gave asked several differant sources what was wrong. The vets all say it's not arthritis or joint problems, that it's definitely in the hoof itself. They can't offer anything besides "She's just really soft footed."
Suggestions please. She is one of my favorite to ride and she isn't that old. :/
