I'm like, devastated right now. My perfect horse that I've had less than a month is now dead lame. After a bunch of flexion tests, trotting back and forth and $800 worth of x-rays, the vet has determined that he has ringbone. He recommended trying a daily regimen of low-dose bute before going to more drastic measures. This is breaking my heart. I don't know if I can afford what it's going to take to keep him sound.
If anyone has any experience with ringbone or has any advice, please share.
