I'd think he hurt it like you said, when he twisted the shoe. The heat is up the back of the leg? Or is it all around the front too? Try backing her - that can sometimes show lameness. If you are handy with bandages, why not put a sweat on it? You can use anything to sweat pretty well - alcohol, green cool, whatever. Put on lots of saran and see how it is the next day.
If she was fussy withthat leg, is it out of the realm of possibility that he drove a bad nail when she was moving about? If there is no heat in the foot, though, I dunno...
I'd hose, sweat and wait it out. JMO!
