Everything went good it was his stifle. I will try and keep him lunged and take him over some ground poles to build muscle in his legs to prevent it in the future. 🙂
If you have hills, even small ones, walking up and down them will help with stifle; and backing up hill is supposed to be very good to strengthen the stifle area.
Balanced nutrition, exercise and balanced hoof trims usually help keep the stifle working properly.

You can also walk him over poles, even if you just have something on the ground for when you bring him in and out.
