ok than that rules out an abcess. That is so weird that she only limps when you put her back!

I am waiting for a farrier to call me back to get him out to trim all three horses maybe it has something to do with her feet needing trimmed. Regardless I am calling the vet tomorrow this has gone on to long and thankfully our taxes come in tomorrow. She was acting fine for a few weeks and yesterday she started limping really bad so its not from the cold cause its been really nice out.

Just for future reference, if you have a good relationship with your vets, some will take payments on services. It very well COULD be an abcess, my horse has a tendency to get very very deep abcesses, and was lame on and off for an entire summer because of one (and none of the several vets or farriers who worked on him could find what the problem was). Some days he'd trot out like a million bucks and some days he would limp. Some days there would be heat, some days there wouldn't. Sometimes there was swelling in his leg, some days there wasn't. Abcesses can be very fickle things. Keep us updated

Thanks Mstar I will keep you all posted. We don't have jack to choose from around here as far as vets the guy we usually have come out is pretty decent so I hope he can figure something out. I think im going to have her trimmed first maybe the farrier can find the problem I did find thin crack on her hoof today that goes almost all the way up to the hair line, but that hasnt been there this whole time.

I have a farrier coming out on Saturday to trim everyone. He said he has hoof testers to see if she has any bruises if he comes up with nothing than I will get the vet out. I told him the I had a nine month old colt that needs trimmed and he said at such a young age he might not need to be trimmed, but he will check him out.
