Tracking up vs hind end lameness?

This question was brought to my mind by a recent thread but instead of posting there, I figured I should create my own thread about it.

If a horse tracks up (or nearly tracks up) at a walk and trot, does that automatically say that there isn't anything funky going on in the hind end?

That seems to make sense to me, but at the same time, horses have a bunch of different joints/muscles and one could be the "tracking up joint/muscle", I don't know.

Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.
