Has the vet been out a second time? I'm just curious what he would say about this hind limb thing.
If it were my horse, I'd masage over all her muscles. One good thing about this, is if there is any muscle damage, you will find it. When you get to an area that is tender, make note of it. Sometimes injuries in one part of the body, like the back, will show up as lameness. I would also get a flexion test of the affected limb to rule out joint injuries.
My favorite thing for cleaning a deep cut is a 35 mm syringe from 2-3 inches away.
Edited to add: How is the swelling in her knee now compared to the day after the injury?
