Old sore now lame

I got this horse given to me because the owners could no longer care for it. I have sence noticed that when she trots she is really lame on her front left. They told me when I got her that she got this scratch on her leg but it didnt bother her. Well I guess that it does.
It is all healed so not too sure what to do. I have the farrier coming out. She does not act like she is in pain. Even with her limp she acts just fine. At the lope she doesnt really limp either.
I was told by someone that she will never be sound. What would you all do. She is 6.

I would add a picture of the hoof and sore but I am not sure how to do it.

I would probably take her to the VET (preferrably a lameness specialist) and have the VET tell you what's wrong.

Could be anything, including navicular .... or a poor farrier job ..... or a pulled muscle.....

I know she needs a vet and I will be doing that after the farrier. I can only do one at a time and I had the farrier scheduled first.

That's not a "scratch"...it looks like it was a pretty severe injury at one time. Judging from the way the hoof has grown out, it was quite awhile ago. May be the cause of her lameness, may be totally unrelated. Only a vet, or perhaps a knowledgeable farrier, can tell you for sure.

Your farrier may help with that. Might need to be shod. May not be able to help and may have to have an xray. See what is going on. Maybe something can help. Maybe not.

That horse looks to have nearly cut his foot off.. maybe on a fence wire. Wowzer. That is a heckuva bad injury that has healed over.

she is not broke yet. That's how I saw the limp was I was working on the lunging. She only does it going clock wise.
There are some horses that wouldnt make good pasture pets just with there personalitys. And she is one of them. I'm hoping its something fixable but I wont know for sure for a while.
She already has more care with me than she did anywhere else. Just a slow process with money being tight.
