Powerfull hind leg lameness every morning
Powerful hind leg lameness every morning
Three months ago I discovered that my horse had a lameness in the left hind leg. Something had happened during the night, or in the pasture the day before. Out of the stables the horse was moving as usuall, I rode it for 10 days after this event. The horse continued to be lame when we put hom out of his box, during the mornings. I therefore went to a horse clinic and X-rayed, they found nothing in the bone itself and ordained medication that was supposed to end any inflammation. It was suspected any form of inflammatory higher up. The morninglameness consisted, but otherwise the horse was not content. After 3 weeks, a second bending test and the horse was not limp, but the limp out of the box during the mornings was just as strong. I have roden and tried to trot off and there is no problem, the horse is not lame when he moves, but he continues to be nearly four-degree level when he goes out of the box. It should be added that the horse does not want to put down the hoof without constantly choose to rest on the toe or place the leg under him to relieve. The hind legs are x-rayed in hoof, fetlock etc. without any findings. I have had a chiropractor who have tried without finding anything, the fact remains, the horse goes very lame from the box and stops limp from after about 20 meters. Anyone have any idea what it could be?
