they are! This is what is so upsetting. The fact that he had to wait 2 days and be trailored to a farm just to get xrays!
Ok good news and bad:
GOOD- he's standing on it now, can walk, but still is favoring it. The xrays didnt show a broken coffin
BAD- had xrays. Showed a crack (i wasnt there for the xrays n didnt get a chance to see them yet) but the vet said there is no way to tell how old the crack is. And it has not run into the coffin (atleast yet).
We are taking the xrays to our vet who does most of the work on our horses. He's an excellent vet and hopefully he can make light of the situation and help us. This vet that took the xrays is just not good for lameness and such. She mostly just deals with cows foaling and she deals with our broodmares foalings...but that's the extent.
