So at the horse shelter were I'm volunteering is a mare, for about 1 year, with very strange front legs. I google it and found an article about Fracture Of The Sesamoid Bones
Here is a picture that seems to show exactly the same condition as this mare that I'm talking about.
Here are some pictures, she must gain a lot of weight but she is way better than how she came to us. The pictures are from this summer so in 6 month she gained some weight. She has 15 + years old and she is just a pasture ornament now.
She seems to be fine, she doesn't show any signs of pain. I guess that the injury is healed now.
For me it's pretty obvious that in the right foot she may have a sesamoid bone fracture but the left foot seems to be ok. Can it be a fracture only in the right foot? Or she is just coon footed with a leg injury in one foot?
She was seen by a doctor but the doctor decided that she is fine as she is so no treatment. I have no idea if the doctor gave her a diagnostic and couldn't find out.
What do you think about it?
This one is more recent than the others, is from november.

Here is a video of her in the first day when she came to us. Here she is on her way to the shelter. Now she doesn't limp like that, she walks pretty normal.
