Exclamation HELP..... What's wrong with his Hind Quarters.

Ok I have pictures to show you what i'm talking about.

The first picture is of his left hind quarter. You can see the crease of his muscle of his but. Also the second picture is of the left side to. (Sorry for him being so hairy. He's shedding)Also I see the cut on his left hind quarter.

The third and forth picture are of his right side. BIG deferents huh. Yes. His right side is just a flat smooth hind quarter.

So something went wrong somewhere and it needs fixing. I'm wondering if theres anything I can do to fix this or will he always be like this? One hind quarter bigger then the other.

I don't think anything is wrong...that line is a muscle. He could have more muscle on the one side. If you notice on the right side his muscle is smaller. Maybe work him more to the right, do more circles to right, to help build up his muscles evenly.

Do you have pics of both sides of him standing. Neck to butt?

If he's standing square. I would think he just favors one side more than the other so the muscle is more developed on the right. In the 3rd pic it does look like he's probably resting that leg so its relaxed, thus you can't see any muscle definition. Unless you've noticed that he's coming up lame, Nothing to worry about. Like the others said too, just make sure you are working both sides evenly.

I would suggest taking your horse out of the dryer promptly to avoid wrinkles and creases. Or, hang him out on a clothesline for a crease-free and summer fresh horse!


You got some great advice, I couldn't help it!

Also his top line..... I'm going to go to the feed store to find some top line stuff to get his top line muscular. I seen some kind of supplement called top line when I was watching WPRA last night. Is there anything I can do about that? I've been going up hills and stuff. He is more healthier then when we first got him. Fat and muscle wise.

He's 6 and 16hhs. I know he looks horrible still but I can only take one step at a time. He is much better then when we first got him. But it's really hard to tell that because he had so much hair when we brought him home.

Also he's a OTTB
