: Editing my topic to be more specific .

My mare was given to me--sight unseen. I thought her back legs were showing signs of dropped hocks, but ----she was moving out nice--no signs of pain---watched her for any more signs--none until now. She had a good gallop around my field, and was caught again, stalled---then let out again at liberty--and then she came in on her own, and was showing signs of sore dropped hocks---so much that she was switching what foot she rested on in the back frequently--(about every 15-20 seconds).

I am getting my vet in to check her in the morning. She has shown signs of this before--but never this bad. I have yet to ride this horse, but she has been backed before in her previous home. I'll try and get photos of her legs in the morning.
