    I'm really not great at reading rads... this was taken in 2015 when my OTTB Mare chipped (with her breeder/previous owner, I just acquired her in November 2016). This is a left front fetlock area. What do you see? Is the deviation in the front of the joint the chip with a hairline saucer fracture?

    I finally obtained this as I intend to do a new set of rads to see how things look. She's never been lame on it and came back and ran fine so I'm merely curious and hoping to gain a better understanding of reading rads.

    The vet can go over it with you. There should be some other views and if they're digital, they can be enlarged on screen to see more detail.

    I realize this, but it's a long weekend and I was curious if some helpful, knowledgeable soul was interested in chiming in ;)
