Which legs is he hitting, the back ankle or the fornt ones?
If it' s the front, is he toes out?
My stallion will sometimes nick his ankles if I don't have him shod quite
right since he is toed out a little.
It's the front foot hitting the opposite front foot.
If it's in teh rear- I dont' know how to fix that one, but have seen many
endurance horses do it when they are tired.
Esp when they are going down lots of narrow trail.
