My mare (cob type) has had a windpuff on her left hind since April of 2020 (see pic for the day I noticed it) by July of 2020 she refused to trot in the pasture it hurt so much. Finally in August I got a vet to look at her and all they did was say “Strange” and give her a cortisone shot.
4 months later she was lame again and two more vets just shrugged it off. It has grown to twice this size (will add current pics tomorrow when I go to the barn), on the rare occasion I ride her she trips on that leg (It still hurts but she’s mostly sound so I don’t want to Bute her everyday)
The vet mentioned something about fluid and a tendon sheath.
Does anyone have experience with something like this? Any ideas to help? Cold hosing doesn’t seem to shrink it and its not hot.
(On another note, my mom still rides her despite me saying shes not allowed to, but nothing much I can do about that since its her farm)
