I took Rebel for a walk on the gravel driveway, longed him at a walk both directions. He seemed less sore. He’s been stiff in the hocks for some time now. When I cleaned out his hooves his back legs seemed less stiff. The weather has been dry for about a week. I’m wondering if that is helping his hooves to be less sore. The angle his rear hooves are trimmed may be contributing to the stiffness subsiding. When I walk him on the driveway he wants to scoot over to the grass and walk there. I keep him on the driveway, so he walks on the gravel. I don’t have gravel in his pen, the dirt is very soft. So, I’m thinking I need to do this with him on a regular basis to keep his hooves tough.
