Lameness help!

Well its really odd but not only is Joe lame but so is my two friends horses, except their horses have abcesses (we think). But Joe has no pulse so I don't think it is an abcess. I am almost positive it is his left front, and I am thinking it is from a week or so ago when he tripped he went down to his nose and got back up and then I fell off lol...broke my helmet, but ever since then he has been off. Its not terrible but I can feel it when I trot one way and just a little the other. What would you do besides giving him time off? I have been getting on him and walking and doing a bit of jogging because when he gets time off he will get even sorer and crazy! Do you have any remedies or anything you would put on it to maybe make him feel better? Thanks in advance!

Can you have someone come and look at his back, as he may have put it out when he fell.

If it's been like this for almost a week it's time to have a vet out for a lameness exam. It could be any number of things and in any area from the neck to the back to the leg, so you really need to have someone out who can assess the overall movement of your horse and then get more focused in on one area based upon what they see on the overall exam.
