    I followed my vets advice and soacked it the first few days and kept an eye on it just incase it abscessed. It never did, he did get bute the first two or so days, after that he hasn't showed any lameness since.

    When I first saw him, it really scared me. You could have swore he pulled his shoulder out of place. I felt all over for heat/punctures and couldn't find anything. The vet said he more than likely stepped on a hard root while running around.

    Not much of an update today...I checked on her this morning and she still wouldn't put any weight on that leg but she tried to come to me for a treat. I couldn't bare to see her try, so I went out to her with a treat. Poor thing. I also went over after work tonight and she was happily eating at the round bale though I'm sure that she hasn't made any miraculous recovery at this point.

    Ultimately, I feel that this is "their call" as far as treatment goes. I'm just not qualified nor have the knowledge as they do.

    THis whole horse thing has been an ongoing learning experience and I've learned so much from this forum as well. Thank you everyone!

    My farrier told me Emma had an abscess and she never even showed signs...in fact, it didn't even come to the surface like a normal one. But when Holly, a pony I have since sold, got one she was lame as could be! Thought she broke her leg, in fact I swore to it. No heat in the hoof, only in the leg, no weight just a pathetic limp, and no signs, again of an abcess. Abcesses are tricky, tricky things...you might want to make 100% sure that's not what it is.
