Thanks everyone. Grace sounds like fun Miss that when I lived up north. Hunter can be hand walked for 5 to 10 mins after this week when swelling goes down. Poor guy I feel so bad especially that I never called vet on Thursday. Stupid me I listened to other people

Hunter, don't beat yourself up. I don't know anyone (myself included) who hasn't made that mistake at least once, of waiting to call the vet.

Hunter, here is the style of boot I used; I also used Sore No More and it was great at drawing out the swelling. The prices have gone up a little
http://www.doversaddlery.com/magneti...0o2pi2r0t1jj45

When I was using these, I could really really tell a differene in the swelling. I usually left them on for part of the day, took them off, and then back on again overnight. We worked up to overnight; I had tendon issues with my horse and didn't want to create more problems by having something too tight or rubbing. I checked with my vet first; he was a skeptic and doesn't believe in magnets but he said there was no way I could do any harm as long as there wasn't still heat in the leg. He is also, now, very pleased with how the horse turned out. He's totally sound with just a hard bump where the tendon was injured. Since he got off rehab he has been fine (but I am very careful riding up and down banks and I do not jump him.)

Sore No More isn't a liniment; your friend was right that you shouldn't use liniment on a 'hot' e.g. Fresh injury and never under wraps. SNM is one of the few (if not the only) topicals you can use under wraps or boots safely. It can be used by itself without bandages, too. Good stuff!

Stan, if you want to go on the NZ trek, and it costs you $3000, maybe you could buy She Who Must Be Obeyed something that she would like.

She will look forward to me coming home. What more could she want.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.
