Arthritis? Problem for winter?

Berdi had an injury a couple years ago and she has a bump on her knee. Now she is sound and can be ridden fast and hard with no problem. However I have been noticing that in cold or damp weather she holds the leg up a bit and shakes. I'm thinking of giving her MSM to help. How much should she be getting?

I also was thinking of buying or making her leg warmers for winter. At least when she is in her stall and then she can't lose them! I'm wondering if she has arthritis in that knee now.

I would really appreciate any thoughts and advice on this. Thanks!

Yea it could be arthritis. My horse has arthritis too and I have him on joint supplements. A good joint supplement should have glucosamine, msm and condrotin (sp?) If your going to wrap your horse's legs, make sure they're standing wraps. This is just my opinion. :)
