I found a dime size hard lump about two inches above the hoof (anterior) on Defender's right front pastern tonight. It wasn't there the night before last.
Could this be high ringbone?
I pressed hard on it to illicit a pain response and nothing. Didn't seem to bother him at all.
He's not lame on the leg.
Think I should have the vet out for an x-ray?
Does anyone have experience with something like this? Treatment? Prognosis?
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide me.
