I don't think it was a kick - he's in the field with my older mare and yearling. He's the dominant horse out there, so the mare leaves him alone. The yearling is his buddy but I don't think she could have landed a kick in that area.
He's had his blanket on for a while, but I check underneath it everyday. I undo the leg straps and belly straps and fold the blanket up to the shoulder area... so he could've done this a few days ago and I just didn't see it :(
I'm hoping he just strained something when he out in the snow (they did alot of running) and a few weeks of rest will let it heal...
