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

Well the farrier said dhe might have them and I was doing some research. Somewhere it said that if they haave bumbs obt he inside of the cannon bone they may have them. Which she does.

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
