Limping horse, don't know why?!
My 15year old TB is limping, he has been for awhile. He is on hoof supplements, and has been for the past 5 years. My farrier says he doesn't see anything wrong with them.
Any ideas on what could be wrong? Any remides i could try?
If a horse has been limping consistently for more than a few days, it's vet time.

It could be anything. Horses don't just limp because their feet hurt. You won't know until you have a vet out to give him a check up.
trying to bring a vet out within the next few days.
he used to limp a few years ago when he needed his feet done, so my first guess was feet.
I know the answer! He's definitely limping because he hurts somewhere. Most likely in his leg, hoof or body. If he's been limping for some time, it's a chronic problem that hasn't been treated effectively. As we're not psychics here, that's all we can tell you.
Please get an equine vet out asap & do not ride/work the horse while he's lame.
he has not been ridden in a very long time, atleast 6months. The vet told us what it could be, but the problem hasn't went away.
What did the vet tell you?
So you didn't actually have the vet out, just called them on the phone? That's what 'could be' means. If you'd had an actual exam, you'd know more than that.
Poor horse. :evil:
hes resting on his heel. so his feet needed to be trimmed short.
Which they were.
