We usually stall our horses 3-5 days for sprains depending on how bad they are. We do apply ice and liniment..my experience has been that even if I can't feel heat or swelling, they can still have mild sprains that cause limping. After 3 days, we usually see how they are doing and, if they are still limping, even a bit, go back in for another day..and check everyday just to limit their motion and let it heal.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
