Sounds like he may have a rock bruise. Time for a call to the farrier.

Sorry, but with so little info, who knows. Kind of like saying - hey, that strange man walking down the road is limping & he wasn't when I saw him the other day, so what do you think is wrong? Just because he was not lame 2 days ago doesn't necessarily mean there was nothing going on, that has just come to a head or the ride exacerbated. I'd be not riding him while he's lame and if it's severe &/or goes on for more than a few days or so, I'd get an equine vet. If he appears to be comfortable on 3 legs & needs his feet done, call the farrier immediately.

If he has had the rock wedged in there for days, he may have a stone bruise now. But heat in the knee says something else. Can you keep him in the round pen for a day or overnight, maybe cold hose his leg and see how it looks tomorrow?
