HOW do I get this stifle back in?

One of my mares slips good and hard once a year, we just had a bunch of rain and she took that opportunity to slip again. She always ends up knocking a stifle out/locking it, whatever you'd like to call it. This is the third time/third year she has done this. In the past I've guided it back with my hand while someone backed her up and we have it back in within five minutes. This time, no such luck. Its been stuck out for about twelve hours now and she has been happily peg leggin' around.

Is there a trick that I do not know about? Backing up, guiding it with my hand and backing down a hill hasn't worked. My equine chiropractor is out of the country and my vet said I have as good a chance as he does at putting her back in place. Super.
