So the other day I went to see my young horse after a day off, took his fly boots off and both hid back legs were stocked up. He was sound on the lunge line and it went down.
Trainer also said the next day, stocked up but sound. She recommends I start wrapping his legs.
I texted my vet, she said if not lame, she’s not worried. She comes Wednesday anyways for vaccines and a wellness exam.
Now normally this wouldn’t worry me either…but I find it a little unusual in a 4 year old horse. He lives in an outdoor pen with a run. He has plenty of room to move around. And gets turned out on top of that.
I’m thinking of asking my vet to run a blood panel or something. Just to make sure it’s not systematic or something. Any ideas? I’m sure and hope he’s fine but I just want to cover out bases.
