So I rode my horse wednesday night, totally fine. Thursday went out and he was lame.. not awful by any means but there was a obvious head bob at the trot, barely noticeable at the walk. His left front leg was warm around the cannon and his hoof was warm, but no swelling. Figured maybe an abscess cause it came on so soon. Went out to the barn today and he didn't seem off at all walking, but again a limp at the trot, but less head bobbing and less obvious. Hoof very warm and leg still warm too. Still no swelling.
Any ideas? I figured if it was an abscess it would have gotten worse, not the same/slightly better.. I don't know. I'm not that concerned, i'm just going to see how it goes over the next couple days, but I haven't had much experience with lameness issues other than my other gelding having had a few abscesses in the past.. so just curious on other possibilities :)
