I hope I ll find some help here, as no one seems to find why my horse is lame.
My young mare has been lame for 2 months mostly on hard ground when walking in the paddock but I don't feel a real lameness when I ride her.
After being ridden the canon fetlock and pastern are swollen and we can see there is an infection going on. After shower and poultrice It's getting better but keep being inconfortable.
She has a light club foot, she is barefoot and leave outside. I do light work.
According to the vet the problem is not from the tendons (swollen is soft when tendinitis give a harder swollen) , xray shows no bones issues. So he says to wait and that could probably be a hoof issue.
I am tired of spending a fortune and been told to wait without being sure what my horse needs.
Did you have similar issues with your horses? Any advice?
