Flexible Hock
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me....when you pull my ponies hind leg backward her hock goes further back and her leg appears straight which looks strange to how a normal horses leg looks in this position. My pony is walking, trotting and cantering ok....she even jumped a rather large pool of water in the field with no signs of pain. When moving the leg up under her belly or backwards she doesnt show any signs of pain.....its a mystery?? Can you solve it???:lol:

If you pull her back backwards of course to leg is going to straighten??????
I'm not sure what you're asking here, maybe get a photo of the leg?

For clarity I mean her leg straightens when pulled back from above the hock to a mule....its like her tendon or ligaments have suffered damage..even our vet hasnt seen anything like it....
