Hey there! This is my 11-12 year old Quarter Horse (Thoroughbred mix?), Zeus. He's 16 hands, lazy and sweet as can be. We've been having heat and swelling in his hocks, is there any conformational faults that may make him more predisposed to hock issues? He's on a joint supplement, and I'm considering Adequan. Anyway, enjoy! His left front hoof is clubbed as well, he's getting trimmed tomorrow.



Showing off his hock wraps:

Easy hack (not me):


Bonus funny:



Thank you SO much! :D

His back legs are quite straight. This will cause issues with his hocks and could be part of his arthritis.

he looks great in the picture with his hock wraps, but seems to have lost condition. (If the top photo is most recent)

He is downhill, steep croup (In top photo) But overall, he looks pretty good. Neck is under-developed.

Yes, the top two were taken this morning. He twisted his pelvis and I wasn't able to ride or work him for about a month :( . A chiro came out and adjusted him, so we've been getting back to work!
