I have a goat that marches with front legs when walking. She tends to walk on her knees often too. We have trimmed her hoves and still no change. What could be causing this and what can I do to help her?

wasnt there a thread about a pinch nerve or something causeing simular behavior in a goats back leg?? I think Goathiker shared a video of a horse ?? Cant think of the name?? and dont know if it effects the front legs...

Is her knees swollen, heated? her hooves have any heat from them? What is her diet like, are you mineral def. in your area..Selenium especially?

This can be a sign that the goat has foundered bad enough that the coffin bone has turned. At this point with it healed that way there won't be much you can do to change it.
