I got my mare Flower, a six year old paint, in September last year. She has pretty good ground manners, but has always been a bit of a brat with her back feet. Then at the end of October/Beginning of November she got an abscess in both of her back feet. First one in her back right and then in her back left. She recovered from both of them and hasn't been off since. But almost every time I pick her back left hoof, she acts like she is off balanced and puts all her weight in the hoof, forcing me to drop it, and then stumbles to the side. Some days she won't do it at all and then other days I'm lucky if I can pick it out at all.
The vet has looked at her feet since the abscesses and has not noticed anything and so has our farrier. Do you think there could be something wrong with her? I don't know if she is actually sore in the hoof and that's why she's doing it, or if she's doing it to be a brat
