Another good thing about contracting with his old farrier is you'll get all the info. Want to know anything about what's going on at a barn, or with a particular person, ask a farrier. They may be quiet but they're all ears!

Boy is that the Gospel! They are bartenders and hairdressers of the horse world.

Did I ever hear "stuff" when the vet was here to oversee the Trimmers when they worked on one of my horses last month

Problems with lameness on one leg will cause problems on the diagonal, and in the back and neck for that matter too.

And at this horse's age, I doubt would be doing much but just keeping horse comfortable.

There are many things that an owner could have done that might have lasted a couple of months, so that horse appeared more sound, but it has since worn off, and now problems are showing up.

Horses make me a better person.

The vet is administering a nerve block which lasts hours. It can be part of the process of elimination. I'm just a little surprised that this horse has begun having so much go wrong with it from the time it was brought home. I've seen horses that are on long term low dose bute maintain soundness for several weeks after coming off it.

Nothing really new is happening. The horse is on bute and resting this week. The leg swelled up more after the lameness exam but now is back to where it started last week. He doesn't seem to be in pain just standing or walking down the barn aisle.
