There is a gelding at the barn I board at who has stringhalt. He's about 22, but he's had it since he was 9. I know what it looks like and that he isn't in pain, but I'm curious about it. I've tried Google and stuff, but I can't find anything too conclusive.
What causes it? Is there something that makes a horse vulnerable to it, like genetics?
How quickly can it develop, and do you see symptoms before the condition completely develops?
