In the trot she was still showing lameness and she was grunting/breathing really hard each stride :( I stopped her after a few strides and we walked the rest of the way home. She doesnt mind walking at all. The vet had to cancel on us as he had more pressing engagements like horse flu victims so im not sure when he will be back out. Its really hard getting a vet at the moment...all the EI people are waaaaay more important grrr anyways, the farrier is coming tomorrow and I am going to have shoes put back on and ill get him too see if there is anything going on in there that could be bringing it on. Its been wet lately and her feet are very soft from constantly being in the wet so I want to get them up off the ground. Ill get her feet completely better before I go barefoot. If he says there is nothing, I am going to get a chiropractor out and see what they say.
Im so sad for her :( she has had such a rough trot, pardon the pun. She was starting to get back on track with everything on now she comes up lame
ill keep you posted on what the farrier says tomorrow.
Thanks for asking vida :) you're such a caring person :)
