We have been offered a broodmare that has contracted tendons on one foreleg, it is not severe and she is sound unless she is thinking about it so to speak, if she is showing of for a stallion she forgets and uses her leg beautifully and you would not know.
She stands at 17.3hh and was bred as a 2 and 3 year old, she is now 4 years but not back in foal, both foals have not got this problems showing, one is rising 2 years other rising 1.
What do you think could have caused this? could it have been lack of nutrition as a breeding 2 year old? or just her sheer size and growing too fast.
Does anyone know if this can ever be corrected? it does not bother her in the least and she does walk on her foot fine, her fetlock is just slightly straighter than her other forleg.

We always cut the check ligament and that tends to cure the problem.

How big a procedure is this? and what is the recovery like?

Not a big deal, the recovery is not long either. the question is if you have a vet in your area who is good at it. I have a vet/surgeon down here who is regarded as the best in the southeast. He is a vet but only does surgeries all day long, no farm calls.
