Chester is a six year old black and white miniature horse. He came to us because he had stringhalt in both back legs. He had a bad limp that made us all think of Chester from the TV show Gunsmoke, hence his name.
But the name Chester, although it stuck since he comes when it is called, isn’t as fitting now. Changing his nutrition and exercise has eliminated the stringhalt almost completely and he now walks with no noticeable catch.
