Has any of the vets tried nerve blocks to identify where the pony is lame?  They usually start at the bottom and work up.

The shoulder muscles will be sore from holding and using the leg differently to normal, which can give the appearance of shoulder lameness when the problem is lower down.

The majority of lameness does come from the foot unless there is an obvious fault elsewhere, such as tendons ect.
