My horse has been lame for almost 4 weeks. He cannot "throw" his leg forward to walk. The vet diagnosed his problem as "Sweeney" shoulder. Does anyone have experience with this condition? How long before this resolves itself?

See the article at » Diseases of Horses » Nervous System » Neurological Conditions Not Covered Above » Shoulder Sweeny and the discussions there. (i.e. use the navigation bar at the top, click on Diseases of Horses, then navigate down.)

(It probably would be easier to find if DrO corrected the spelling.)

Good luck and welcome to Horse Advice,
