He looks like he's going to be fine - it's just going to take a while. Imagine how you would feel if someone wearing army boots landed a really solid kick on your shoulder. You'd be sore for quite a while too, but eventually you would recover. Keep doing what you're doing. It's working. Daughter's mare took a full month before she wasn't sore anymore. There was still a slight lump six weeks later - but she had other problems too. (VERY emaciated, so there was no padding where the kick landed. Pulled her colt off of her and changed up her feed and she is looking much better in spite of her boo boo incident)

Y'all don't know how glad I am to hear you say that! I felt like that it looks terrible. Major has never had more than a scrape since he's been in my care, though. Thank you very much for posting...I feel a lot better knowing that Major is going to be ok.

That's exactly what our horse's should looked like. It moved down with gravity and then slowly decreased in size. The horse is out 24/7 so I think the movement help it work itself out. I know it looks ugly, but it doesn't look that bad. I give it 2 weeks.
