In late 2021, we learned that Smokey had a hyperextended leg. While we can't say for sure that it is carpal hyperextension or whether it is due to an injury, we were concerned about perpetuating a leg problem (if it WAS CH) and felt it necessary to retire him immediately rather than risk continuing his use. We do feel that the risk of this being genetic is lower given that Smokey appraised at 3.5 years old without issue - meaning that this issue cropped up sometime between that LA session in late 2019 and our LA session in late 2021. We are addressing possible mineral deficiencies as well. None of his current offspring has any signs or symptoms of hyperextension, but we will be keeping a close eye on his retained offspring regardless.
