April had some discomfort this fall when the farrier trimmed her rear right foot. We went to see Dr. Turner mid December and he found her usual stifles needing to be injected (darn her for growing crazy fast as a baby). Got those done, as I was planning on moving her to boarding barn to ride starting January 1st. The broken elbow delayed that. Farrier apt on Feb 2nd, she basically refused to lift and allow that leg to be pulled back to be trimmed. Saw chiro Feb 8th. Found a few spots out, and her sacrum locked. got that all adjusted and figured we would be good to go.. until I tried lifting that rear right foot. the weird part is besides being a bit crabby at the lope (not THAT unusual for her! lol) she was totally sound on the lunge line and under saddle. Back to vet we went... of course she was a big drama queen when he tried to lift and flex that right hind.. then trotted off sound. Got out his thermography camera and took a look. basically, she has a "pulled groin muscle". Prescribed surpass, massage, and good warmup with lots of trotting poles, on the ground at first, then working up to raised a fair distance. thought the thermal images may be interesting to some.
