For sure, this is your horse and you KNOW your horse from top to bottom and the vet wants to "think" it could be something else? That could be the call that changed your horses life forever!
Hope the farrier is more educated! If he see's any signs I would call that vet back and get some anti inflammatory and then put your foot up her rear end after I picked up the script! Wow.. Whats her number I will chew her face off for being so ignorant!

Well their pasture is very frozen and uneven right now because of the ice and lack of snow. They always walk careful on it like they hurt but are usually just tripping on the ice. Yes she just gave us an over the phone diagnosis. The only problem we have is she is the only horse vet in town and the next one is over an hour away and will only come to our town so many times a month. Other than that we have no vets for over 2 hours away:( we also only have 1 available farrier so we are trying to way to show him what we want done. I am going out to take her temp in about a half hour and I will post what it is.

Yes, she is the closest thing we have to a horse vet where I live and it's very difficult. We have another equine bet we can call but he can't come up here right away. He is from out of town and only comes up a couple times a month

Kay where are you in Minnesota? You can PM me if you don't want to put it here. It might surprise you but there might be someone closer. Worth a try. I remember from the past that you are farther away from me. I'm in the Twin Cities metro area but I might be able to help you.

Went out and took her temp. It's 102.2 degrees fahrenheight. Her hooves are still hot, but doesn't really seem to be lame or anything. Her frog sticks out past her hooves, so our vet is coming out to trim it down. I will post some pictures of her from tonight in a bit.

Yes, we are trying our emergency vet number. I put her in the barn and put the heat on 55 with lots of bedding and hay until we find out what's going on. I want to be able to control her food intake for now.

That's probably a good idea, but remember what the others have said it should probably be soaked first until you figure out what the vet says

This may or may not be a problem at all. May or may not need trimming. How far is she going to trim it?

I iced her hooves with a soft ice pack for about 10minutes each and put her in a stall and we are going up to the vets office tomorrow
