sudden lameness in right hind leg

My horse angel has came up 3 legged lame in a day.I cleaned her hoof and nothing was abnormal, but there is slight cool swelling in her fetlock and that seems to be where the pain is coming from. She's putting some weight on it and is walking toe-heel. I have it soaking in epsom salt now. She's acting normal and eating/drinking fine. Hope you guys can help!

You need to get a hoof tester and check to see if she could have something going in side the hoof. If she comes up with pain in down in the hoof. Call the vet.

My friend did(used to be a farrier), didnt act like it bothered her.The vet is coming out tomorrow, the only one that is in right now is a pos. Came out last year and said she had thrush ( old and my farrier were appalled by this, her hooves are dry and clean) and turned out to be an abcess.

Three legged lame my guess would be an abscess. Even if his hoof is not sensitive it could be higher and may blow out the coronet band.

That's what I'm leaning towards, she's gets them about once a year.usually though if it happens to swell, its hot, but this isn't. I gotta say, I hope that's what it is, nothing too major:)
