DSLD is becoming more common. You cant diagnose it till after death by looking at the structure of the muscle fibers in the suspensory legs. I agree. When I saw the first set of pictures I was like Holey Cow. Those back legs have some sort of suspensory issues. The best thing for this is 24/7 turnout and support boots (like smbs when possible.) Talk to your vet about the exent of his problem. My first horse's suspensories eventually turned to scar tissue. It felt like they were calcified. He was stalled, but only when I would put standing wraps and pillows on him.
