Most likely need xrays-shin splints for people are very painfull-
What makes you think that is what it is?

Poor baby that has got to hurt-i would think that it would be worse for an older horse-ask your vet-he/she may have some therapy or something?????? One cool thing about our horses-expensive but cool-ya get a farrier and a vet to bounce opinions off. If one doesnt spot the problem the other may.
Good luck I hope it is something simple!

Than my vet is coming out for a checkup on one of my other horses and I will be sure to ask her if she sees anything. I may also call our leg vet
