Vicki - I have a heifer about 8 mos old that came up limping Friday nite. We couldn't find anything in her foot and thought she might have a stone bruise since the ground thawed and there is a good bit of mud. This morning I see a little swelling above the pastern - she walks but you can tell it hurts her. I am thinking of putting her up in a stall with another heifer for a couple of weeks but usually get in more trouble when I put something in the barn. What is your experience with a sprain? Should I just let her heal on her own? She doesn't need to walk much - maybe a couple of hundred yard between the round bale feeders and the water trough.
