    Default Biceps Tendon

    Where exactly is a horse's biceps tendon and how in the world did my horse manage to tear it? After a very difficult to diagnose lameness, the vet did an ultrasound of my horse's shoulder area and found a tear.

    If you have seen this before, what methods were used to heal the horse? How long was he/she out of work?

    My 11-year old mare was just diagnosed with this same injury today. Can you tell me about your horse's treatment and recovery so far?
