  1. Problems In Hind Leg!

    I also thought 5 yr old is too young to have hock issues.. but my vet told me it wasn't. I've only ran him on barrels for a year.. and I've ran him in maybe an average of 2 shows a month. Sometimes only 1 show a month. Before I got him he was a pony horse at a training race track. Maybe that could of caused arthritis. I'm thinking about a 2nd vet to look at him becaused I still don't know what to do on this matter Thanks for the replys
  2. Problems In Hind Leg!

    So i found out it isn't his stifle. the vet found out it is his hock! He has arthritis in his hock now.. it's not a bad "case" but it is still arthritis. So he gave me 4 shots i have to give him every 4 days for the next 16 days. And this should help, if not then i'll either have to get another set of shots or just get his hock injection every 6 months to a year if i run him. I don't know what to do. I hope these shots will help him.. Any ideas???? Anyone else with this problem?
  3. Problems In Hind Leg!

    Thanks for the replys.. I'm thinking it is his stifle.. i guess we will find out on thursday. I'll post what the vet finds as soon as I get back thursday!
  4. Problems In Hind Leg!

    Hey everyone.. I have 5 yr old gelding that i have ran barrels on for almost a year now. He is now having some problems in his hind leg.. I can feel it when i am trotting or loping him. I can't describe it very well, but I know there is something wrong by the way he moves it. He doesn't move it the same as his other leg. I think it is his stifle. He doesn't have any signs of lameness when he is just walking. I have a appt with the vet on thursday take some x-rays. Hopefully this is nothing serious. Does anyone maybe have any ideas on what could possibly be wrong.. i'm really worried about him. A little more info: Our last show I ran him on barrel twice. The first time was a great fun. The second run he blew the first barrel. I believe it was at this show when he hurt something in his leg, since he usually doesn't blow any barrels.
  5. Nervous Horse?

    Hey! My barrel horse is a nervous horse. When i take him to a show his stool is very loose, like he has a upset stomach. At home, it is never like this. I think it is just him being nervous and being hauled in the trailor. What can I do to help him? Is there any medicine I can give him to help him that will not effect his performace? Thanks
  6. Merit feed?

    If you use the Performance or Complete Merit feed, please let me know how you like it. I'm thinking about starting my barrel horse on either the performance or complete merit feed. Which is better? Is it good feed? And around how much does it usually cost? Thanks in advance!
