What causes a horse to become lame?
See my horse isn't lame I'm just trying to get info for a paper. Thanks guys
Injuries. A few examples are stone bruise on the foot, where a horse stands on a stone and gets bruised. Could've kicked himself in the stable or hurt himself by rolling. It's just like being a person when it comes to injuries. Some may be more extreme and may need vetinary attention, it's always best to get your horse checked by a farrier or a vet if your horse goes lame
If they get a abcess or they have a sore or a broken leg
