got a real strange thing here that i have never seen before , so if anyone has had experiance with something similer let me know....2yo filly at the walk will sometimes reach out with her back left leg and strike her shoulder :roll: not kidding and the vet does not have a clue whats causing it.....filly does not do it all the time but it is strange and she does it just about every other day...any ideas ?

Sounds like stringhalt. Neurological condition. Haven't been around one in ages, not sure wha the current protocol is. Last one I was around (maybe 10 yrs ago) was a Trakehner a friend had and I believe they cut his jack chords.
