And no HollyBubbles, def not a sheath stone - the vet cleaned that out when he did his teeth a couple of months ago - no unfortunately sheath swelling is one of the first signs of pre laminitis - his crest is also getting hard - I feel really bad for not picking up on it earlier actually, have been concentrating on His Lordship
Oh right, just thought I would suggest it anyway just in case :) my mini got laminitis when we first got her, but she was like a house on legs when we rescued her so it was kind of a given that she was going to get it, we were just lucky we got her when we did and did what we did so she only had a low level of it.
While you may feel bad for not picking up on it earlier, don't feel too bad as you did pick up on it and take action before anything has happened to him.
