Help hind leg drama

Hello I purchased this filly about 6 months ago now she is a 3-4yo tb once I got her home I discovered she looked WONkY in one hind leg I then got a trainer to view her he said she's fine to ride (no lameness ) ect anyway now I'm having her swell (no lameness still) and she has a mark on her inside leg ... Same trainer came and looked at her he said she looks to have knocked it in the yard and the mark is from her brushing due to swelling .... I gave her a day off and swelling was gone .... I took her for a ride along the road the following day and today she is swollen in the same spot ? .... Now the vet is booked out till next week and does not class her urgent due to no being lame at all can anyone help ?? I have attatched some pics

Looks like an interference injury. This means she is hitting herself. Ride her with brushing boots on behind.

FWIW I don't know who is trimming your horse, but she appears to have really run under heels. This may be part of the reason for brushing (bad farrier work).

She is cowhocked by design.. so she probably travels and swings that hind foot in and down which interferes with the opposite leg. H

I was worried her leg wasnt holding up to work .. The trainer who looked at her was thinking maybe she had a splint injury that wasnt cared for ?? I'm thinking of booking her in for X-rays so I know what's going on ... Just thort I'd throw her on here and get general opinions... will have to try boots on her its just strange its been 6 months and she's been in work that time and just now this has happend. :/

That's to high up on leg for interference from other hoof it would be on fetlock not half way up cannon bone.
