Mickleberg Hi Guys, I've found some good pictures of my standy gelding. He's 11 yrs old and he had approx 70 race starts, he has bowed his near side tendon but raced again after he had recovered from the injury. When we first got him we had his teeth done and had his back checked by a chiropractor, he was out where the back of the saddle sits and through his hips. We had problems keeping him sound, he was uneven in the front so we put some shoes of front hooves and that seems to have fixed problem then he wasn't using his back end short in his off side hind so we got a vet out, the vet said that to him he wasn't lame and to keep him in light work and monitor the suitation, we took him into a different vet to get second opinion as i didn't agree with first vet and they flexed him up said straight away that he was sore in off-side hind. Vet said he thought he was sore in his hip but would have to take him up to perth to get x-rays to confirms this. Unfortunatly i do not have the funds to do this so we gave him 4 injections of pentosan over four weeks. His movement improved and he was alot more inclined to actually use his hip and we can now get canter left as before it was pretty much impossible for him to do. I have circled the places where i think there are knots but i may have missed some.
