Hip out of place?
My horse was running around bucking during a rainy day. The next day he was lame, he still is lame. He did it around Friday of last week. I thought at first it was from an old abscess but I was wrong. He has been acting like it is his front but I think it is his hip. His hip has been cracking more then normal. I rubbed his hip and walked him around for 2-4 minutes and no limping at all. He acts like his back leg won't hold him up. I know it isn't broken or fracture because its not swollen. He has a muscle that protrudes when he walks sometimes, that I have never noticed before. I called a chiropractor today and he will be here tomorrow. Do you think that will help at all?

The chiro should be able to help. Even if its not skeletal, they should be able to give you an idea of what's going on and what to do for it. If they can't help, on to the vet.

He had his hip, wither, and Lombard out of place.

That sounds painful. I hope he's feeling better now!
