The riding I did was through some watery mud in an arena at a trot and lope for like five minutes. I was too uncomfortable to try anything else on her.

I've never heard of stall rest in injections but I have heard of just giving them time off.

She has had X-rays on her hocks and the vet didn't find anything, but the vet we got xrays from has a reputation of not doing well with lameness.

As for the vet, I don't know he's done this A LOT and actually has an amazing reputation for his work

Mud?

To my understanding, the point of "stall rest" after injections is not so much to restrict their movement per se but to keep the injection site CLEAN to avoid infection.

I'm very dissappointed to hear that your vet didn't educate you about that?? Yes, the overall risk of infection is low when you do injections, but it is devesting if you get an infection in a joint.

My vet(s) have never said 3 days of stall rest. I've used two different vets and they both told me stall rest for the first day (in a CLEAN stall) and then you can turn them out for the next 2 days. But absolutely they must have 3 days off, minimum, regardless.

Just to make sure I understand you correctly.

You have done hock x-rays in the past, but it was with a different vet who either didn't know much about lameness and/or didn't take good x-rays.

Did the new vet you just went to, did they look at the hock x-rays? Or not?

I'm really not trying to rain on your parade, but I'm just a little suspicious of what your vet did and did not check, before deciding the only problem with your horse was the one stifle.

It's obvious there was a problem with the stifle with the fluid present, but it's very common for a horse to be compensating in another joint (to make up for the affected joint) and thus that can cause an issue in the compensating joint.

Just like if you had a sprained ankle. You are going to overload your good ankle with weight, as well as probably bend over a bit as you walk around on crutches. Or walk around funny if you are trying to walk without crutches. You'll end up getting sore in another body part, because you are trying to stay off your hurt ankle. .... Maybe not the best example but maybe you get what I am trying to say?

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Honestly I would call and check in with the vet. Let them know what you did, ask about any specifics for injections etc. Better safe than sorry!

Sorry I've been away so long. Anyways.

Cleared by the vet to run Paco and I have made some runs. The lasix is working just fine.

Her normal home arena she isn't stopping and turning, she's running off with me. Any other arena she runs perfectly fine, (for the most part.)

I think she's still incooperating pain with that specific arena. She feels so much better to ride and she's acting way more comfortable

Glad things are under control and she is feeling better.

Getting past the mental barrier post-pain is TOUGH. It's far more common and a bigger issue than people realize I think.

I have ten her once and it was terrible, the ground was so slipper I slowed her way up.

Either way I'm starting to condition right now. We are taking her back slow on the pattern at the arena she doesn't want to turn at, we need to reintroduce her and let her know she is okay. She's been gorging on a round bale and has actually gotten a little fat...I start tomorrow taking her to a racetrack and conditioning and breezing her and the gelding.
Hagen is almost 5. He will son begin training with help from my trainer on barrels. I'm starting to haul him EVERY barrel race and rodeo I go watch or ride in (:

I'll get videos ASAP and post them! If I can remember!!
