Update:

The swelling has not gone down. My trainer cold hosed her leg yesterday morning and night, and this morning. It's still hot and she's still favoring it. I wasn't able to go out yesterday because it was my hubby's birthday. My trainer suggested calling the Vet out (which she NEVER DOES.) Why must my horse break down all the time? WHY! Ugh! Think good thoughts for my money eating machine!

Vet on her way, will be here at 3 pm. It's wonderful going to your principal and saying that your "daughter"is sick and you have to leave. lol.

Good luck today! Better safe than sorry when it comes to those delicate legs! I am sure the vet will help you figure out what is up, hopefully it's some minor!!!!

UGH that stinks. Sorry; hoping the best for her!

Spring abscesses (in the hoof) can cause heat and swelling in the leg and acute sudden lameness. Luckily they are easy to treat and recover from! Perhaps that is all it is. Good luck. A call to the vet sounds like the best medicine at this point.

Lots of sympathy from me - I've had the vet twice this week for Maisie and another visit scheduled for next week with x-rays and all! Hope she improves.

Gahh! I'm so sorry! It's always ALWAYS something, isn't it? Dang horses, I think I'm going to start feeding Cheyenne dollar bills instead of hay, it'd probably be cheaper. I suggest you start doing the same, lol.

I feel you. My horse has been sick for about a month. He's starting to get better but it's been one setback after another. My fingers are crossed for you that the vet gives you answers and that your horse has a quick recovery.
