Today I was doing some free lunging with Arrow in a paddock that we have, and he was being a bit fresh, though listening pretty well. Long story short, he spooked, ran towards the fence, realized last minute there was a fence there and continued running until he tripped over a tree root sticking out of the ground that neither one of us had noticed before. I feel like such a bad owner because this was preventable.
I watched him move at a walk and trot, and yep, he's limping and favoring the leg (front right)
It's a few hours later and he's not limping as bad, but he's still walking on it tenderly.
I'm keeping in a paddock with a run in right now, as opposed to his big pasture so he can't run on it.
Any advice or possible diagnosis?
Should I wrap his leg at all? Vet wrap or Polo's?
I'm working on getting the vet out, probably on monday or tuesday?
