Stumbling, off on left, buckles at the knees
I JUST got this horse... so I am scared that this is going to be something chronic. I have all the xrays, I got them done, and they are thorough...and recent. All ok.
He stumbles on his left front, like a knee buckling.
If tacked up, with girth loose, and you try to pick his feet, he will buckle in the knees and go down slowly. If he is tacked, and he trys to nibble on a piece of hay on the ground, both knees buckle and he will very slowly go all the way down.
Now, he is off on the left front. Very pronounced.
I had a vet come out... said it could be bruising in the heel. Got him shod - went sound for about 4 days.
Got chiro.. man said he was very blocked...left shoulder was in spasm. Cracked him. This was just a day or two after the new shoes were on.
Im really nervous, not sure what to do!
