Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to their horse before ... She came to me limping on her back foot a couple of days ago, thought it might have been thrush, treated it and turns out that's not what it is. It's like her ankle is locking when she puts pressure on it ... she'll step down on her toe and then it's like her ankle "locks" really quick when she puts pressure on it. Any insight would be great!! (I've been putting DMSO on it, I have Bute, but don't want to use it unless absolutely necessary. If she's not better in a few days I will take her to the vet)
try backing her up a few steps... if she can't then it might be her stifle.
Could be a foot abcess, one day they are fine .... the next LAME!!! if the ankle is not swollen or the leg, I would look at the foot. But, if it is an abcess... it might take weeks to come out. Check fo heat in the foot.
