  1. Sore Stifle?

    I have a 2 year old gelding I just picked up 7/28. He will let me pick up all of his hooves, except his right hind leg. When I try, he shift all of his weight onto that hoof, to the point he side steps towards me so I can't get to that hoof. When trotting, that right rear leg doesn't extend as far as the left. I tried pressing all over his hip area to see where he is sore, and it seems to be his patella/stifle region. However, if that was what's hurting him, why would he WANT to put his weight on that side? Just a little confused and seeing if anyone has any ideas! He was in a pasture with a mean old mare, so he may have been kicked. I really have no idea. He doesn't limp or show any signs of lameness, just doesn't want me to pick up that leg. The other side stretches and moves just fine.
