    Sid has a bit of click occasionally - as did my last horse...wouldn't worry about it unless he's lame...(but I have been known to be wrong on occasion!!)

    It wouldn't worry me if he's not lame
    My lovely horse, running through the fields.
    Where are you going with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?
    I want to shower you with sugar lumps and ride you over fences.
    Polish your hooves every single day, and bring you to the horse dentist...

    Cassie has always had clicky joints since we got her (10 years ago).
    Asked a vet about it when we had her down getting x-rays (for her arthritus) and he said it was nothing to worry about some horses just had it.
    Its not as bad these days though but she hasnt been ridden in well over a year so maybe i just dont notice it as much anymore when i am bringing her in and out of the field.....

    My last pony had one joint that clicked when I picked up her leg to pick out foot - vet and farrier also told me nothing to worry about we all click at some time or other. The first time I heard it though I got a fright.
