Flexion tests are a totally subjective thing and it is important for the owner to be present to ask the vet questions about what s/he is seeing. There are a lot of variables including footing, whether the horse its trotted off straight or on a circle, if the horse is ridden or led, etc, etc depending on just what lameness the vet is trying to pinpoint.
What were his hocks injected with? Is he on an adequan or legend regiment? Has he been diagnosed with osteoarthritis? Have you discussed treatment options with the vet?
