Hi everyone thanks for taking the time to see what the fuss is about.
I recently purchased a mare that has stone brusing and pretty sever I might add. We put her in the stall on horse shoers secret and bute for pain, eventually she got better, not well enough to ride just enough to go out side-- bad decision . All was well other than being a little gimpy from time to time. I went to feed this morning everything was fine, went out to feed tonight and her right back ankle is swollen, hot, and she can't hardly walk. So I put her in the stall after running cold water for about ten minutes gave her a little bute and I am so scared she has done something very sever to herself, I don't know what to do. The swelling looks like its more to the front of the ankle, I can't tell if its a tendon or legament injury or if she has dislocated something. The swelling is just above the ankle down to hoof.when she goes to set it down she shakes really bad, she did lay it down to get in the barn but she had a hard time getting there. If anyone has any sugestions what she has done or what I can do that would be great. Vet can't come til monday.
