We're guessing that he hurt it in the pasture while turned out, stepped on a stone or just being playful and landed wrong. The first vet did not xray him, he pressure tested his hoof and did the whole flex tests etc and determined that it was in his fetlock, the second vet ruled out the fetlock thinking he was more tender in the toe and that's when we got the xray and he was right. It was a very obvious fracture because it had been several weeks since the original injury and the fracture line was clean. Thanks guys!
