Hi there, I have had this horse for over 2 years now, when we got him we were told he came down a fence post, and would always have the "bump" above his hoof.
We had him x-rayed several times in the last 2 years ( as he will be lame one day and ok the next) all the vets have told us the same thing, theres nothing broken, chipped, or inside still. They have no answers for his lameness.
We ran him all summer without any problems, in august we dropped him back off at the farm to rest while we finished our last few races of the season. When we came back, and as the winter has progressed, he seems to have gotten worse.
Anyone seen something like this before, or know how to treat it? It almost looks like something blew out the top part of his hoof.my boyfriend is a farrier, so we know it isnt from being shod.
