    She gets no turnout.... the turn out was a bad idea the other day and made it worse. She just gets walked three to four times a day for 20 min

    Sounds like you have a good plan worked out with the vet. Always go with your vet and your gut!! If the horse is sore - leave it on stall rest. I hope she has not done any great damage :(

    I would work her walks up to 20 mins. JMO to be cautious I would leave her stalled completely for a few days, then do a few 2 minute walks, then 4-5 mins, then 7-8 etc.. until her tissue is a little more worked up to the exercise and if she is at all sore or uncomfortable - put her back immediately. Let her pain be your guide. If she is limping, don't walk her. She will likely walk enough in the stall for the first week or two. Good luck!

    She doesn't limp =/ Which is what is so confusing. Every now in then. And the stall or on a walk. She will limp one maybe two times. And this is back to walking normal. And due to her being used to being kept outdoors I'm afraid if I cut her walks back any we will start having issues

    So... Having issues getting pictures of her leg. However, this picture here. If you ignore the thread and information, the picture of the front legs is EXACTLY what her fronts look like. Just switch the swollen leg to the left side. And of course her legs are black and bay, no white.

    Suzie's leg looked horrible this morning when I went in to feed. Before she gets her grain I cold hose her leg for 15min. Then give her the feed with bute hidden within. It looked a bit better after this. And then look MUCH better after her 20min walk session. She seems to be feeling better mood wise as well. Though irritated with me because she can't go out with her friends. I'm thinking about reducing the amount of feed she gets if this goes on much longer, she actually nipped me today for stopping her from jogging. She has never threatened to do so once in her life =/ Not wanting to smack her because I don't want her to jump around. I screamed at her and jumped towards her making her go back.... Hopefully the lesson will stick

    Welcome to a horse on stall rest. I would cut her feed unless she needs the weight, make sure she has free choice hay if she's locked in.

    While there's obviously something going on it sounds like a lot of the swelling is just from stocking up, so I wouldn't stress too much about that part. It's just a waiting game for now unless something changes.

    Well.... Suzie's leg was almost compleatly back to normal. Day before yesterday I picked up her foot to clean it out. And hello Mr. Screw sticking out of the back oh her foot. Got the vet out, screw removed. And hole had to be cut to allow drainage. Wrapping and cleaning for a long while it looks like. Just now able to be free, and back in the stall. Also... No idea where the screw is from. Fence, barn, stalls.... Everything is wood and NAILS. No screws

    Wow, sorry to hear that. If it's not one thing it's another. Poor girl. Hopefully this heals quickly and uneventfully. It could be from anywhere, shrug, stuff happens.
