Nelson's hind right Stifle was locking on him - just every once in a blue moon. I took him to a local Equine Lameness Specialist who watched him move.
I thought it was his hock to be honest - I seriously did, and I was surprised to hear the Vet say Stifle within watching Nelson move in the first 20 seconds. He asked me questions, like does he feel like he's tripping in the back end, etc, etc stuff like that...so anyways, after he watched him move, he palpated him and took xrays.
He ended up inkjecting both of Nelson's hocks, and both of his stifles - he injected his stifles twice, both with this iodine stuff and believe it or not, it worked like a hot ****.
I have to do exercises to get the stifle to strengthen up. Lots of cavaletti work and hill work to get it to build up and strengthen up and lots of strait work.
Hope you figure it out.
