I have a twelve year old half arabian mare. She is a National showhorse. Last march when she was be brought in from the pasture she fell. When she stood up she limped. She has limped ever since with the shoulder bone protruding with every step. Since then there has been no improvement. She doesn't seem to be in pain and can run quite well for a short distance. I have been told this is a shoulder sweeny and may never get better. One vet suggested an operation another said it could get better in eighteen months. I want to no what I can do to help the healing process if there is one.
