A teen-age gelding presnted for the complaint of forelimb lameness. The gelding had been purchased approximately 6 months prior and the prepurchase exam performed did NOT include a radiographic exam. The gelding was mildly lame in a straight line however the lameness was significantly worse when lunged in a small circle. Through a series of nerve blocks it was determined that the lameness was originating from the foot and a radiographic study was performed. The radiographic images in Figure 1-3 are lateral views of the foot in question. Two abnormalities are noted by the yellow and blue arrows in Figure 2. The blue arrow corresponds to a chip fracture of the extensor process of the coffin bone and the yellow lines correspond to extensive mineralization of the cartilage of the foot (side bone).
