A good vet will be the one who can narrow it down for you. They are experienced and can see if it appears to be front or hind, hoof or leg, neck or back. Often they can narrow things down by doing flexion tests, using pressure testors or nerve blocks. Then they will be able to examine the area and see if they need xrays or ultrasound, or if they can make a diagnosis without those things.

You are asking farriers, and they are good at hoof issues but won't be able to tell you if the horse has probems with other areas of the body.
