I have an 11 year old paint/quarter horse. I noticed she had a small limp in her front right leg. but there wasn't any swelling or anything. However yesterday i noticed that the same leg had swollen and it was swelled from the knee to the hoof. At first i thought that maybe she sprung it or something because she's always out in the field with two other horses. However i don't think this is the case because i noticed that where the hair attached to the hoof there is a small hole, or blister sort of thing and it's leaking clear watery like fluid. The fluid that is leaking has a very strong oder and her leg is hot. I don't know what this could be.

Sounds to me like she popped a gravel out of her coronet. Soak her in epsom salts.

I too have a mare that has been limping for a couple days, yesterday I noticed a small swelling right above her hoof just above the hairline, what do you think that could be caused from? Should I call a vet or a farrier?

I would just give her some bute and soak in epsom salts and wrap it in icthamol, it will pop out.

Sounds like a classic abcess. As Cathy said, soak in epsom salts.

Sounds like she could use some antibiotics of your vets choice too!
