Freddy doesn't belong to us, so it's not our say of what his medical care entails. We are taking care of him because his owner is away at school, but we still don't make the decisions on what happens to him. He is on joint supplements like Recovery and Glucosamine, and I believe he's injected with Legend a couple of times a year.

Ok, that makes more sense.
Talk to the owner then and see what they want to do.

Update!
Paige went out on Thursday and lunged him before the part-leaser rode. He was not lame. But, she also told me that a slight girth gall was visible under the lights tonight. This could be part of what caused him to burst. Freddy, who is sensitive to being poked or petted, would probably not stand too well for a girth gall, especially given the conditions of Sunday.
I have yet to hear what the vet had to say yesterday, hopefully his owner will call tonight and let us know.


So, Paige and I have decided that the incident was due to a combonation of things. One being the enviroment of the whole farm on Sunday (mares in heat, four horses in the arena, the odd tension). Two being the dirty girth. Three being the lack of variation in Freddy's routine (it's been on and off sub-zero temperatures here, so our rides have been conservative of making our horses work too hard). And four, a possible soundness issue, but we've yet to see anything.
