What did the vet say ? If been good and now going, something somewhere is bothering her and it's not in her knees. It may be somewhere else and this her making the correction.

Shoeing wise, hope you have confidence in your blacksmith. The best shoe I used for a knee hitter was a queens plate. Broke over better and still had a little grab.

They said she's changing her own timing and break over points in hopes when she hits the ground it won't hurt as much?? and that can cause issues with lameness behind as well?? I don't know--purses are much to cheap here to keep throwing good money after bad!

First you should determine where the hits are coming from...the opposite front or hind...I've got a mare with a bad LF XYZ ligament who used to knock the inside of her RT knee with her LF. The better the LF, the less interference.

This is just one horse though, not necessarily your issue.

At what speed does the hitting start?

Sounds like you asked someone who took the time and trouble to give you good advice.  Why did you ask this person if you are going to ignore them?

I don't ignore anyone--I ask many different opinions and weigh them against what I already know and use the best--thanks Wink

  Is this the same horse you asked about on the other thread?  Now she's hitting both knees?  Maybe you better stop asking for help on this forum.... doh

  Just re-reading this thread.  That's what I put on Cannae Barron, and I totally agree.  Also, just because you're using the same blacksmith you still need to monitor the hooves yourself. Blacksmiths have a way of following the foot out instead of correcting the flares because they want that wall to nail into. Over time, the foot gets out of shape causing soreness and gait changes. Think of a flare like having a too long fingernail that gets caught on something and pulled up away from the meat underneath. A flare is the wall getting pulled away from the laminae.  Very painful.
