Please help me and my horse.....
I'm very concerned about my horse and I want to help him....
Whenever someone has a question about the health of their horses, the first stop should be a call to the vet, not a visit to an internet forum. In many cases the vet might be able to advise you over the phone. At least the vets here do. I suspect it isn't an emergency situation but letting your vet be aware of what is happening now might help if there are any changes. Good luck to you and your horse.
Anyone giving any info on the forum without even seeing the horse and certainly not being able to touch the horse, is blindly guessing. You might want to take your horses temp, also feel the legs, is there heat? These will be things the vet will likely ask you when you call.
