Locking or Sticking Stifle in Mini Horses

Sign in to follow this  

Upward Fixation of the Patella (locking stifle). Luxation of the Patella. Miniature horses present with a stiff gait and inability to flex the stifle. In some horses, due to conformation or inflammation, the patella slides up and becomes stuck, the horse would then demonstrate an inability to bring the leg forward. The toe often drags behind the leg and the fetlock (ankle) will be flexed, but not the hock or stifle.
