About a week ago I brought my mare in to ride and I noticed that her right hind was swollen (below the hock, but her ankle and below perfectly fine). Cold to the touch I rode her lightly and she was sound. The leg went down alittle bit. I turned her back out and that night I wrapped her leg for a couple of hours with back on track no bow wraps and regular standing wraps the rest of the night. The next few nights I wrapped her hind legs as mentioned above and ridden her lightly. She is still turned out during the day and in at night.
However the past few days her leg has gotten worse (swollen, but cold from ankle to hock; just right hind). I stopped wrapping her legs at night because her leg had been getting better and I do not like to wrap unless I have to.
I am going to try to wrap it tonight with Fura-Zone. Any ideas as to what is causing this swelling? Thank you for your feedback!
