Melanie-Lameness is a general term for limp. Yes, she is lame. Once you get her all set and she can do her gaits without limping, she no longer will be lame. I am so glad she is on the mend. What did the vet say about her possible pregnancy?

oh i see...can you ride a lame horse?? she wasnt pregnant...it seemed like it but she just had a grass belly and was probably full of gas lol...but she lost alot of weight when her leg first got hurt and she has been putting on the weight wonderfully...i have a recent picture of her that i will post on her so you can see how she looks now :D....also lately i have noticed is that her from her cut and down the leg it has gotten puffy and some what swollen but there is no heat in her leg at all...i have been water hoseing her leg down and but binodine mixed with sugar on the cut..i heard that makes the swelling go down...but it seems to be going down but really slowly...today i put a cold damp rag on it to see if that would help.

Melanie, no you shouldn't ride a lame horse. It puts too much weight on the leg that is trying to heal. She should try not to be too active until it fully heals.
