Lyme disease?

My horse has been on and off lame for the last few days in his front feet, never in the same one. It is only noticeable when he is ridden, no heat or swelling. He had a massive allergic reaction to a tick a few months ago, ahich never happened before. Could he have Lyme? Vet is coming on Monday.

Could be lyme or something else hard to say...have vet do a blood test for lyme dease.

Had two horses sick with it started off diffrent for both but in the end both were pretty sick.

Glad you're having your vet come out. I would watch those front feet, it could be that they both hurt and he has to switch legs for that..
