    Hi There, On jan 1st Zephyr knocked his hock while walking over a solid metal bar while we were out for a ride. He was immediately very lame but after I led him for a bit he became OK enough to ride him back to the float (about 1/2 hour walk) When I got him home I poulticed him with a clay...

    My mare showed up with an injury to her hock. It appears to be from a kick by a horse with shoes. I just moved her to a new barn. Being that this is my first horse I have not had to deal with an injury this severe until now. There's significant swelling and a deep cut. She walks and stands fine...

    My 2.5 year old AQHA gelding sliced his left hock. I had the vet come, he put my horse out, washed with antiseptic and sprayed some silver stuff on it? The vet said he doesn't THINK he cut down to tendons or any ligaments. I've been giving my horse bute for pain everyday, it's been almost 2...

    So just recently my horse Dolly got a bit of a cut on her hock. The cut itself wasn't deep (or bad for that matter) but her hock was quite swollen. I treated it every day by hosing it down for 15 mins with cold water, and cleaned out the cut. The swelling went down just fine in a couple days...

    So, since at least about last Monday/Tuesday my pony has been stiff at the walk on his right hind, and it looks like his stifle. He only looks stiff tracking right, but not tracking left. He's also perfectly fine at the trot, doesn't look even the tiniest bit lame or stiff. I walk-trotted him...

    I am considering buying an 11 year old paint gelding. When he moves (mainly trot or canter) it seems as if his right hind hock is stiff. All of his other legs seem fine and he doesn't act like that leg bothers him. This stiffness is hardly noticeable. He does not limp or act in pain. The owner...

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I am hoping someone can answer a question. I have a nine year old appaloosa/mustang; he is in overall very good health but has a large bump on the back of his hock (point of hock). It doesn't seem to cause him pain and he has had it since I bought him...

    Hey all! I just bought a 3y/o 17h TB gelding who has stiff back hocks. He's only been off the track for 3 weeks now, and is currently on pasture board so that he is not standing in a stall getting stiff. However, his back hocks are still REALLY sore. I'm trying to determine if I should a) put...
