March Case of the Month
A 17 year old Quarter Horse gelding was noted to be laying down quietly in sternal more often over the last couple weeks by his owners. He had continued to eat, drink, and pass manure normally. When walking, he would take slow short timid steps and acted like he was walking on eggshells. On exam he had a slightly elevated heart rate of 48 bpm, with normal thoracic and abdominal auscultation. The gelding had abnormal fat deposits with a large neck crest and tail-head fat that was moderate to severe. He had bounding digital pulses in both front feet and was very sore to hoof testers on both front toe regions. Radiographs were approved and one view of the set is shown below. What does this horse have?
