Lump on leg?!!
Ok so the last time I seen Lola was friday. Her legs were perfectly normal! Today, Tuesday, there is a lump on her cannon bone. It is rock hard. It feels like a bone. No heat, no pain. I was looking it up and came to the conclusion of a splint. It said they are not dangerous once they are formed and should not cause any problems. Then I go onto a different site and it says only young horses get them and you should stop work with them straight away =/
She is not lame. And like I said no heat and no signs of pain when I was squeezing it etc. On one of the sites I read it said while the splint is forming it can cause pain and a bit of lameness. I thought she looked a tiny bit lame a few times a few days ago but I just thought I was imagining it because I never wanna see her lame again!! Now that I think of it she could have been slightly lame. Now she is fine. And then the site went on to say once the splint is formed it is harmless..
So which site is right?! Obviously it could be something else but a splint seems the closest right now.
