Picking up his feet?
So, Ice has been doing something really wierd lately. Its not consistent, he'll only do it occasionally, but when I go to pick out his feet, I'll ask to pick up his front left foot, and he'll pick up his front right and hold it there. I usually ask first by just touching his leg and that pretty much cues him, occasionally I'll have to squeeze. He can also pick up the correct back leg when I ask for it, its just a front leg issue. To get him to pick up his left foot I have to make him walk forward, and then ask again.
So whats up? Would you be worried if this were your horse, or does he just not want to put weight on his right leg?
