Upsetting experience

I always forget that my mare is an "old horse", she always acts like a filly. But really she's 24...

Today, the farrier came and she was being really weird with her right hind leg, really playing up. When the farrier let go of her leg, she couldn't put it down! When she did manage to get it back down, she was limping for a few moments. She was obviously in pain, which is why she'd been playing up. It looked like the pain was coming from her hip.

I'll be getting a chiro out this week to look at her, and I'll be adding joint supplements to her diet. I don't know what the point of this post is, just needed to vent. My poor old darling :(

She's probably not in a lot of pain all the time, just when the foot is held up for awhile. STill, I am sure you want her as comfy as possible.

I don't know if your farrier can trim her lower to the ground and closer into her frame or not. If she has any stifle or hip soreness or any ouchiness, maybe some gentle stretches can help a little beforehand too.
