People will need a lot more info. Where is she lame? Where is the swelling? Are there any wounds? Is there heat in it?

Until we know other info it is hard to say what to do. Usually bute is o.k. and good for inflamation but I would hesitate to advise it until I know more. You can't go wrong with some cold hosing though.

There's no hock on a front leg, Z, you may mean elbow, knee or fetlock. Do keep hosing a lot.
How lame is she? Will she walk?
How big is the swelling and where exactly?
Do you have some bute to give her to control pain and swelling?
Is there a vet you can call?
