If you have time and get a chance, how about checking out the second two videos I posted and tell me what you think?

I'm not tryimg to brag, but I watched 4 of those lameness labs, and was right on 3 of them, with the forth being a trick question, since the horse was not lame at all.

The chestnut in your second video is clearly lame in front.

but, YOUR horse, I still think it is right rear. your video is a WALK video, so will have to be judged differently. Look at the VERY first couple of strides he takes. look at how, when he pushes off from his right hind, he limps , and uses his whole body to absorb the movement.

A trot video could change my opinion, but from what I hae seen, I still say right HIND.

Ok. I'll take a video of him eating at the tub when I get a chance. You can watch him pick up his foot and handle it gingerly.

The videos all say it's hard to tell hind without a rear shot showing hip elevation. From what I understood, if the hips stay level, the hind in not lame.

Maybe I can set up the camera on a tri-pod and take a trot picture. I'd sort of like to see that myself. I'll also take my camera to the vet.

can someone help you do a homespun lameness evaluation?

you would pick up his hind and lift it up as tight as possbile, up so that it's right up touching his belly. you hold it up as high and as tight as possible for two whole minutes . then have someone trot him off , preferably on hard ground, and you watch for uneven movement.

or, at least lunge him on a circle. that helps to clarify things sometimes.

30 seconds is enough, a minute is very good for this flexion test.. can do for all 4 legs to watch if he reacts on them. but take care to let the tested leg recover before you take the next one on, otherwise it can off set the test.

I also saw some lameness in the right hind.

Well, I don't know much about this stuff but I don't suspect a flexion test would show an abscess.

Without discussing this with Google, I'm "thinking" the flexion test is used AFTER the determination has been made of which hoof is lame using the methods described in the video, elevated hip etc.

The flexion test would then be used to determine the source of the lameness. If the horse is lame in a foot but passes the flexion test, the indication would be the source is not located in the muscle/skeleton but in the hoof itself.

Anyhow, first appointment available was Friday at 3:30 PM. I took it. Roman will also get a snake shot at that tme.

Hopefully you have a vet with a good eye for deducing the area of lameness.

Even if Rimmey is lame in hind, don't discount something might still be brewing in the old frog injury. Horses often end up lame on a "good" portion of their body from trying to compensate with the good side --- which then becomes bad.

By snake shot do you mean rattlesnake vaccine? I'm old ya know, so I only think I remember someone on some forum saying a rattlesnake vaccine is available for horses:)

Roman is my Border/Kelpie and is only a year old. He is small and might die from a rattler. And he would likely attack it. Meka has been bitten twice. Head swelled up but didn't die. Vet gave a shot to reduce swelling just in case her airway got closed. Not worried about shots for any of the horse. They just stay away from snakes but no shying.

Last evening Meka was doing some strange barking. I thought a ground squirrel was likely hiding under the trailer but the bark still didn't seem quite right. Went to check and heard a high frequency buzzing off to my left about 15 feet from Meka. She was looking at the rattler. Sorry rattler. Thanks for rattling but you gotta go.
