I am owner of a 4yo 17.1h hunt seater (flat only AQHA). Just purchased and he has a negative Palmar angle on one front (causing some ring bone up at ankle, one side) and on rads is 'buckled over' at ankle although this has improved since Nov. '15 with new farrier. He is also close behind and is hitting himself.
He is being hauled now to a DVM and his farrier, but has only been there once as of today. This farrier is placing a wedge on the Neg. Palmar but was unable to address the hind end today due to time constraints...has to do with cluster on appt booking. Horse will be returning in 4 wks. and in the mean time, he will be wrapped behind to avoid further damage.
He is currently in aluminum up front and steel behind. Would love to hear suggestions. I also have rads from Mar. '16. He is sound although can come out a little ouchy up front and then works out of it. He is on Adequan, Estrone (kept on it for stifles/growthy). He will be Magna Waved including foot paddle routinely. Injections from this point forward will be Irap. Apparently, had coffin joints injections prior to me owning. I am not sure exactly why, but thinking he may have had inflammation due to Neg. Palmar and was being shown extensively.
