I love my vet, I trust him...which is why I wasn't out there today for the vet appointment. And my horse is easy-peasy to deal with. Anyhoo, I think my vet just got a little overzealous because the other horses were getting hocks and stifles injected. Normally my horse gets just his stifles injected every 6 months due to some arthritic changes in the stifles.
My horse has never had hock issues, his hock x-rays have been clean.
Now that he's had the hock injections, are going to have to be maintained now in addition to the stifles? Will he now be such an awesome uber-floaty mover that I won't be able to resist getting hock injections?

Doubt that you will have to do continued maintenance. Many QH performance horses have them done preventively which seems to work fine without maintenance issues when they are not competing. Sure hope you didn't get billed for it though.
