    Also I would seriously reconsider your relationship with your coach, I would be finding a new one if I were you.
    she hasn't been my coach for several months as I have learned all I can with her

    If she is able to bear weight on it and the swelling has gone down something good is going on there. While it might not hurt to have an xray done sometimes a wait and see attitude isnt bad so long as the horse is not being put through undue pain or stress. If you can afford a vet do give a call and have him/her come take a look at her and give you some advice about the best way to see her through this.
    Best of luck and do keep us posted.

    Our vet is free of charge so I have had an Xray and will be seeing it in a few weeks once she has returned home. As of her current condition, she shows no sign of lameness and willing is trotting with excitement while I lead her for exercise :)

    Thats great that an xray has been taken.. If she is walking and trotting with little problem it definitely is a good sign.
    Im glad you have given her a home regardless of the circumstances. It sounds like you are going to keep her for the long haul and it seems to me you have stepped up and are doing what you can for her.
    Having a vet available to you and her is great. You have a resource many would not have. Best of luck with her and as I have already said do keep us up to speed with her progress.

    Same!

    Glad to hear you had xrays done, however. Hopefully it'll show nothing, but I doubt that considerably. Even a free, retirement horse costs money, and if the vet suggests she needs long term painkillers, that's a pretty penny to spend. Good luck.
