I guess so. Especially since I would be having my horse ultra sounded if I suspected ligament damage. *shrug*

And I know ligament injuries are bad. The horse is staying in until she is fully better! He told me to keep her in for a week then when that week is up she should be walked until she is better. He said there will be a great improvement by then.

I have never made up anything I posted in this thread..Just because I say it is not my fault the vets did not help more does not mean I do not care. It was the vet who said get an X Ray. He did not know what was wrong with her. He thought it was her fetlock. The other vet said he would tell me when she could have an X Ray. They are the ones who could not diagnose the problem. Ya know they can get it wrong every now and then. Just because they did not help more I am getting bashed. I have been doing everything I can to get help for my horse. You cannot judge me by what I say on here.

Again like I said you can judge me all you like I do not care about people I do no know. Especially those who make it a hobby to attack people.
I will start with I see nothing wrong with a vet suggesting an X-ray.
X-rays are great. They are a great tool to determine what is going on inside. They can rule out lots of things being wrong and allow you to move on to the next diagnostic tool if they do not answer your question. They also give you the bonus of having a record of how things looked on that day. That way in the future you will have something to compare to.
A vet suggesting an X-ray is not a bad thing.

Part of the reason I do not believe you is your posting of the conversation with your vet people just does not seem logical. As Judge Judy says, 'it if does not sound realistic then it probably is not realistic' (or something like that).

If my vet said they would let me know when it was time to do an x-ray I would ask them for specifics. What will determine when it is time? Are we just waiting to see if the horse is lame for a longer time? Why can't we do the x-rays now? Etc.

What exactly is a neuromuscular man? And what about a neuromuscular man makes it legal for them to act as a veterinarian with out having a license?

Someone with lots of experience can surmise that the damage is where it is. But there truly is no way to know the extent of of a lesion on a ligament with out using something like an ultrasound.

And no, a ligament lesion will not be lots better in a week.
If that was the case, I would not have given up two summers in a row worth of riding while healing a horse that was not even lame looking.

Please put the amount of energy you are putting into being indigent with us into getting a real diagnosis for your horse.
Maybe contact Maggistar and get more details on the vets she uses.

I want to go to college to be a 'neuromuscular man.' It's my dream job.


Did you ask to see proof? Or did the man just poke her and say 'WHOOPS it's her ligament there.' Because, I mean, that's how I diagnose broken bones and stuf..

If you don't have proof, it doesn't exist.

I would like to thank the people who have helped me =) And thank you for giving me advice without telling me I do not care or should not own a horse.
I'm sorry, Sarahandlola, but I see nothing but people trying to help you with advices and suggestions based on somewhat controversial statements you make.

I think all advices were given already and this thread is going in loops. With that being said I'm closing it now.
