Without knowing more about the hock issue, I would say that there is really no choice but to wait and see if she recovers. What else were you thinking of doing? Is this your only horse?

What was the extent of the injury? Ultrasound/x-rays? Your vet feels that she may be fine so give her some time and don't be so quick to give up on her.

What exactly was the injury? Maybe I'm wrong but I get the impression that you have given up on her? You can't really expect to get much in the way of a price or trade for her I don't think. I would definitely give her some time...mother nature is a great healer!

What is the injury? She is still quite young being a 2008 baby and if your vet feels she will be fine, then you have lots of time to give her to heal up.

If it's a growth problem look into a supplement called OCD pellets. Apparently they can heal a lot of problems, and prevent other problems from arising.
