Unhappy Poor Klassy is off in her hind leg :( Not sure what is going on!

Yesterday afternoon Klassy came up really sore and not willing to work for me, after takinga better look when I got off I found her right hind leh from inside her hock to her hoof was raging with heat (wastn like this when I was getting her ready) her pastern or fetlock was really swollen and sesitive to touch, so I cold hosed it and put some liniment on it and wrapped her hind legs up for the night. (I had to get help cause she wasnt hapy about having her leg handled so much!)
This morning at 630am I pulled her out of her stall to check on her before putting her in her paddock for breakfest, some of the swelling was down but still realllly puffy on her pastern and really warm so again I cold hosed it for about 10minutes and re wrapped it up, shut her gate to her pasture from her paddock.

Its now 1pm and Im about to go take her for a walk and give her some lunch and let her hand graze sinxe she is throughly expressing how much she really doesnt like being cooped up.

I was told by a friend who I explained this too that I should sweat it and or polistice it both things I have never done before.

WHen i looked in the veternary (cant spell) book it sounds like she had sprained her sesmoid ligiment.

I could use advice right now, never had to deal witha lame horse, good think I do know how to wrap good stable wraps though! I will try to get pictures of it tonight and upload them when I get home.

Im so dispointed we were doing so good and we have a clinic in 2 weeks so thats now completly up in the air as far as riding in it!

I would call a Vet to come out to look at and assess the situation.

I am sorry :( I know how heartbreaking this can be to see your Lovie hurting and off.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.
