Strange Knee Soreness In My Jumper Mare. NEED ADVICE PLEASE!
My mare Valentine has had some sort of weird soreness/lameness in her knee's pretty much since i bought her about year ago. I rescued her from an auction so she doesnt come with any known history! Her guesstimated age is 13/14/15 ish.
It gets worse and better at random, although i'd say its worse if she isnt worked consistantly. I got her knee's injected to try to treat the problem but she reacted badly and her knee's swelled up the size of softballs. Her hocks are completly fine.
We had to recently put her hay in a haynet becuase she gets sore when she grazes too long. They stock up easily as well.
She had jumped prior to me buying her, becuase she knew what she was doing when i bought her so im not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Please suggest anything i should try! i dont want to pay to re inject her if its not doing anything
