    A quick Google search for "EIMMS in horses" turns up hits for equine metabolic syndrome. Not autoimmune, and not a muscular condition.

    I also would no be inclined to go right to changing shoeing or trimming. Not until you understand WHY the horse is wringing a hock.

    Interestingly enough, my mare doesn't mind the big "boom" kind, but really dislikes the high pitched squealers or firecrackers that make lots of rapid pops and cracks. It must have something to do...

    Sounds interesting, for sure.

    But backing horses and training youngsters is not something I'd leave in the hands of students who are also learning at the same time.
