I have a miniature filly. She is just now 6 months old.
I brought her home at 5 months old.
She was trimmed 3 times before I brought her home.
Her next Appointment is This week friday.
I believe she needs corrective trimming.
Her front legs are knee knocked.
Her back legs are cow hocked.
I have read many article's about mini foals and development as many people say they may grow out of this if corrective trimming and proper care.
Making sure they have limited running while maturing and bones are fusing.
Well.. I also breed and own big dogs. For the first 2 years of my puppies lives I let them be lazy and keep there activities to light paced fetching or more learning with fun games to stay active.
Could this be the same for a miniature horse? Less activity while growth and development?
While having light work outs and kept to trotting straight areas and not much bending or circles, unless kept very big.
Keep more to ground manors, conformation and light workouts?
