Lump on hoof
My TB has a hard, bony lump about the size of a fist on his right hoof right above the low ring bone. The rescue organization I got him from told me that it was most likely from an injury when he was younger and it healed incorrectly. They said it doesn't bother him, and to date, I have noticed no limping or heat after/before riding. The farrier also said it doesn't seem to cause him any problems whatsoever. It doesn't set his hoof back any further and his conformation is only slightly turned. I am going to have the vet out soon to take care of his teeth, and will get his opinion, but I wanted to see if anyone on here has had a similar experience. I have never seen anything like this, and I am just wondering what his limitations might be. I still haven't decided what I want to "do" with him yet and I don't want to push anything just yet.
