I recently got a new girl in late December and she has been amazing!!!! We have been doing a lot of flat and she has been building nice muscle and loosing weight, but last time we were at a show (January) she came up a little off so we pulled her from the class, and the vet looked at her the next day. He said that it was probably the beginning of navicular changes and to have her toes rolled and put on bute for 2 days. Well we did that and she was fine again. But then about 2 weeks later she came up a bit off again. So once again the vet came out and he said that her back was sore on the right hind. So we had the chriopractor come out and we had her done (infact she had a huge knot there). But yesterday I went out to ride and she had had a week off so I went to lunge her first. And she was off!!!!!! This time it was really noticable so this time we called a different vet and he said that it was something in her foot but he would need the farrier there to pull the shoe so he could take x-rays and then the farrier could put her shoe back on. But because of schedualing restraints we have her going to one of the best Vets around that we often go to for huge prolems. His name is Dr. Jackson in Aurora(sp) ohio. She is going next thursday(March 20th) and they are taking x-rays and running tests.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be ????
By the way its her right front
