What caused a stiff left hind leg in my six year old mini-horse?


When I let her out into the paddock she had this stiffness as if she was laying on it and it fell sleep, she stumbled quite a bit trying to walk with three legs and then within minutes it loosened up. Does anyone know what could have caused this or if it's something that needs immediate attention? She has been fine all day since.

    you are welcome. If it's been awhile since the trim it could be the change in the hoof. You might just need to massage that leg for a bit.
