Canon bump!

Hello Everyone!

I am posting this picture of a bruised periosteum that my horse sustained while fox hunting last November. He banged his rear canon off of a jump and luckily he was wearing Delmar boots. He hit so hard that the carbon fiber split! Anyway, he was never lame, it didn't seem to bother him when touched, and it only had slight heat for a few weeks. It's been 4 months now, and the bump is still there, my question is this; if anyone's horse has had a similar injury, did the bump eventually go away?

Thank-you :)

Is THAT what it is?? The mare I ride had something like that when she was 4. Puffed up bigger than that, and was warm for a couple days, but never lame or sensitive to touch. I gave her a little time off, because I was worried about it even though she didn't seem lame. It shrunk down a little, and we went back to work. But even now, 4 years later, you can still see it. It's about the size of the one on your horse. I don't think it'll ever go away completely, and is just a blemish we're going to have to live with. Yours is so small though that it might go away/be impossible to see.

Looks very similar to my mare's leg. Her's is a little smaller. But she's had it for about 6 years now and it hasn't ever bothered her.

The bump is unlikely to go I'm afraid - when he bruised the periosteum it caused a massive increase in blood supply and calcium deposit to repair the damaged area.

For my own curiosity, would this cause any future lameness problems?

No it shouldn't cause any future problem with lameness. It's a bit like the sore shins that racehorses get - once it's hardened they are sound. If very mild may never even be lame.
