    I put more weight on having access to a horse's Vet record and old x-rays. A healed fracture would not be picked up on a PPE unless a person spent $1000.00 for full sets of x-rays. Horses being sold by unscrupulous owners and dealers can be 'buted' or injected just before the exam. [This recently happened to a friend of our buying a high priced cutting horse. His hocks had been injected and he was given pain medication and passed a PPE. He will never train or be shown without high-priced frequent injections and eventually that will not help.] I will always go for the horse's old Vet records. Anyone that does not want a buyer to look at them is hiding something.

    Id send her back. She'd probably be happier as a brood mare then a pasture ornament. But if you decide to keep her, look into runners relief. It heals fractures and and tendon injuries. I've never used it, but I've heard great things about it. 100% refund if it doesn't work. With before and after xrays of course.
