I have a lame weanling (7 months).
Going on 4 weeks now, right front.
Full work up, x rays and hoof testing revealed nothing. Vet did not do nerve block- says its unreliable in very young horses or hard to do, one or the other.
There never was any heat or swelling of any type at any point.
Worse when she gets up for her nap (I guess it's like a flexion test?).
Lameness is not affecting length of stride. The pain seems to be on weight bearing part of movement. But easily gives all legs for daily handling and I'm able to move that leg in any way, flex all joints (shoulder, elbow, knee, fetlock) with no resistance. Bright and eating well, getting her hay and her water ok but on limited turn out obviously
Two vets are quite baffled.
On the wait and see and banamine for another week and then more xrays since its been 3 weeks since the last and "maybe" something has developed.
Any ideas, stories...?
