    I wouldn't think one thing directly affects the other. The wound is pretty low on her leg. If the swelling in the leg was related to the teet, I would think she be really lame. She might have bruised the area when she got injured. If the swelling doesn't go down or gets worse then I would call a vet.

    Huh. Interesting, my first reaction was to say 'infection spreading' but the cut is really low on the leg to cause any of the swelling issues you're seeing. Have you cleaned her teats recently and regularly? Try giving them a good cleaning, maybe with some antibiotic soap, could have something 'in' there especially if she has foaled before, otherwise I don't know what else to suggest other than listen to the other more experienced posters.

    Is there any possible way she was exposed to a stallion within the past 10 months or so? Can you get anything out of it if you try to "milk" her?
