Do you think maybe he was stung by a bee?
My mare is highly allergic to bees and will welp up like that.


Hopefully you get everything under control.
Poor baby.

Im not sure. But if you are suggesting that the posters horse has windgalls then you are incorrect.

Windgalls are swellings just above the fetlock joint. Her problem was on the canon bone.

** I think the ailment your horse has could possibly be a bucked shin. Its an inflammation of the bone covering on the canon bone and looks similar to a bowed tendon but in the front. But if the injury is more bony than a swelling then it is prob. Something else.

Hope your horse gets better!

Poster horse? I have no clue what your talkin about!

My horse has windgalls and I was just curious as to what shoeing would help! That's all.

Oh and I don't think that any kind of corrective shoeing would help windgalls... but that's just my opinion. Windgalls are a swelling and a lameness that eventually get less painful. Cold hosing and icing-- as well as rest should help relieve wind galls.

I would only use corrective shoeing if my horse had a lameness such as navicular (I hope not.) or a very serious conformation problem. Other then that find a shoe that fits your discipline/work type and horses living conditions.

I was talking about the poster's horse (the person who posted this thread in the first place-- THEIR horse) ...

Ahaha :P
Oh and I posted a reply to your question too.

i was thinking the same thing. The first time I glanced at the pic it looked like a high bow but then I realized it was on the wrong side! DUH... I was confused because the pic was sideways lol

Bucked shins was the first thing that I said when I saw the pic, not good, confine him to a small area till your vet arrives, don't let him run around at all.

Hey my horse turned up lame 3 days ago, his leg was a little swollen, I wrapped it and gave him bute for the nights and then yesterday I noticed a bump about half the size of your horses, and I was wondering what the vet said your horses issue was? I have a quarter horse that 7 now. He works less than an hour a day, so I don't think it's bucked shins, but I have no idea what it is.... Thanks for the help
