Relaxed or hurting?
So Capone doesnt have a vet appointment til after 4th of July.. His knee swelling is going down, and still doesnt bother him..
But we have been working on ground work with him and he is always bending his back legs like he is relaxed. So I was thinking he is just takeing all the work well and being relaxed throught the work..
Last night we saddled him, to see how he would react.. we cinched him up and he tried walking of but after telling him whoa he stopped and let us finish.. he bent his back leg almost completley rolling his hoof under him. When mmy Old Horse is relaxed he doesnt do it that far.. So we got his footing and put a little weight in the stirrups and he bent his back leg again.. so finally my fiance threw his leg over and sat down.. Capone did not move but continued to alternate what leg he had bent.. So my fiance got off and did a littte more ground work and we let him go for the night and yet again, he walks off fine, no limping or even babying any leg..
My questioin is, Is he relaxed or maybe hurting?
