About a month ago one of our yearling fillies injured her hock. It happened in her stall and we don't know whether she slipped and fell or kicked the stall wall so hard she hurt herself. The vet came out gave her banamine because she was standing on three legs and the front edge of her hoof. I then took her to the vet clinic where we did Xrays fearing she might have broken a bone. She does not have any fractures but remains very ouchy. We did a round of anti-inflammatory meds. She has been on constant stall rest and is now standing on all fours but shows discomfort when moving. Who has experience with this sort of thing. This is a very active and vital filly and does not like confinement.
