The edema in the legs and tummy make sense to me if he is having heart issues. Eating hay raises the body temp so pound the hay to him and be sure to contact your vet. 94 quite low.
Oddly enough one good way to get rid of edema is to drink lots. Horses sometimes will consume more water in Winter if it is warm. So maybe try offering him lots of nice hay and clean, fresh warm water and keep trying your vet. The blood counts are worrisome...
Also wanted to ask...did your vet order a WBC differential. (my question mark button is not working, sorry!) I`d be curious to see those results.
