Is this a possibilty? My horse (OTTB, 6yo gelding) is sketchy in front-but only on a loose rein, with head up. Collected he is sound. He has fusing hocks & bone spurs. Lower back gets tight due to transferred pain/compensation for hocks, neck gets tight etc, can this make him lame? Battling with thrush ATM, due to wet summer but he doesn't react with hoof testers so I don't think that's why he's so lame.
If he has arthritic problems in the back end, what chances are there it's in front too? Or doesn't it work that way.
saving up to go to vet clinic for full x rays soon, but would like opinions :$
