What was the treatment for the frayed tendon? Surgical, stitches? Etc.
After about 2 years I'm thinking what you see is what you get. You could try adequan shots but I'm not sure if they'll help.
I have a horse that severed the tendons in her back leg. She had them surgically repaired and the leg was casted. She spent 10 days in the hospital and then came home to her "cell" for the next four weeks w/ daily bandage changes and 5 minute walks.
After about 8-9 months I was told she was as good as she was going to get, although I believe she continued to improve over the next year. She has a permenant stiffness in the leg from scar tissue but I don't think she feels pain for the most part. On cold wet days sometimes I think I see a little soreness with the leg but all in all, she is not in pain.
Leaving the horse turned out 24/7 would be helpful and then talk to your farrier about trimming, my horse has a specific trim that she needs for that hoof to help her move correctly...
