So at the beginning of the week I rode my horse and she appeared sound, until I asked for a trot, where she was head bobbing pretty badly. I got off and led her home. Feeling her left front, I realized that her tendon sheath was swollen, with quiet a bit of heat in the leg. I rang the vet and he's coming tomorrow.
My real issue is that upon checking her legs today, all her legs have the same problem. Tendon sheath swelling, heat. Literally appeared overnight. The vet is coming tomorrow to do a scan. Does anybody have no idea why all her legs have come up like this when she's been on box rest apart from taking her out to cold hose? Is it possible it could be something a lot more sinister?

Horses used to being out, or being exercised regularly will often stock up on all legs, or sometimes just the back ones when on stall rest. I would continue to cold hose all 4 legs til the vet sees her.
