It's probably time to get her to the clinic for a proper radiograph. They'll have a difficult time doing the shoulder without laying her down with ketamine, so taking her in is probably the wisest thing to do. Keep us updated!
    Yes, the one time I had experience with this and a two-year-old Trakehner gelding, he ended up having DJD in the shoulder

    Ok Posting this since this forum is used as a repository of experiences etc...
    So filly was sound for 2 WHOLE weeks.!!

    Then a week ago she came up three legged lame.
    This time: right hind.
    This is following a very vigourous (read: young horses being stupid and tearing around in the fresh snow).

    No heat, no swelling, weight bearing.
    Next day: no change: barelly walking. Vet baffled, we are told to give her a few days see if she gets better, restrict activity etc....
    Well, she didn't get better. :-(

    So we send her to the vet clinic: full set of xrays: nothing showing up.
    Foot to stiffle all is clear (nice to know!) so WTH???

    Currently working on nerve blocking to try to isolate source of lameness.

    It's not on the weight bearing phase, its the motion that lift and brings the hind forward that there is pain.

    Will keep you posted: for education and commiseration reasons....

    Ugh, so sorry. There is nothing easy about bringing up baby.... Hopefully she will walk off sound in a few days.

    UGH! So sorry to hear this.

    If foot to stifle is clear, then it's got to be higher up -- pelvis/hip joint. Especially seeing as pulling the leg up and forward is what's causing pain. At this point, you may need to have a bone scan done to diagnose her. Not all clinics offer the procedure. Where are you located?

    She is at one of the best equine hospital in Western Canada.
    They've done everything that they could: there is -in their opinion-nothing wrong with the skeletal structure.
    What if she had taken a real akward step-like Bambi on the ice-and done the split and pulled a ligament in the "groin" area?
    Soft tissue, deeply burried, slow to heal...if this baby makes it as a riding horse it won't be from lack of trying on her part to grow up crooked!!!!

    Stall rest, some pain killer (looking into what type) and tincture of the time is what we are going for at this point.
    Will keep you posted.

    I know someone with a filly that had a pelvic injury who responded well to shockwave treatment. The injury was pinpointed with Nuclear Scintigraphy (also called a "bone scan"), and she was then treated with shockwave. It does seem to dramatically speed up the healing process. Just so you know, a "bone scan" will also show soft tissue damage, as well as fractures & such.
