The lady that I'm getting my palomino filly from has a palomino paint colt that hurt his leg, she says it's getting better and thinks it will heal over the winter. It was a bit swollen the last time I saw him, but she says he's starting to trot all over the place. She's offering him to me for $50. Would you take him? There's not a possibility of me getting the vet out there, she's too far out of the way for me to pay for a vet to go that far. Is it possible that he just twisted his leg and will grow out of it or if he's hurt now..will he always be lame? My boyfriend says once they are hurt they never get over it?
