Relevant health or lameness issues

She has an injury to her stifle. She is 2/10 lame in trot which is slight, so she has a great quality of life. I feel it is time for her now to retire and enjoy her life in a field.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

She has an unknown injury to her stifle. Time off and box rest has not helped. She has been xrayed and there is no sign of arthritis.
