She is lame on that leg at the moment, but that's because the farrier didn't listen to what I told him and trimmed her horribly, so either I stick shoes on or have a lame horse for the next few weeks until I get her trimmed right again. She has thinner soles and he left all the sole and no wall on the toe, so the gravel on the driveway made her lame.
I have her on hay (it looks like orchard/bermuda) and 1/3 of a coffee cup of Omelene 200 that I just started beginning of last week. I really like the grain, and it should keep the weight on her once I really start working her.
The bump is sound though. No heat, not painful, etc. I can tell she's lame at the hoof though, don't even need the hoof testers for her to feel the bruise she has.
I have a feeling she's going to be a thicker TB like my old mare that was never raced (leased her for almost 2 years). She just needs to finish filling in, haha.
I was worried about the bump when I got her, but it hasn't caused any issues thus far. I may not jump her, just to not risk it, but I think it was an old splint. I'm trying to find one of her trainers/owners from the track to ask why she was retired since she's not on the injury list (but that does look like they only keep the recent ones up). But I mean..the trails we have..If she's still sound after one of those with that knee, I don't think much aside from big jumps could cauae her issues with it, haha.
