Went out and rode Majic today and he seemed kind of off in his right front leg. Now he has a bump under his knee joint that is from an old injury of unknown origin. Today he really didn't want me to touch it, but I have touched it in the past and it feels hard.
I am wondering if because I am putting him back into regular work if I should put him on a joint supplement. He is 15 years old (not that old IMO) and appears to have no trouble with any of his other joints. My BO doesn't seem to think that putting him on a joint supplement is going to help because the bump that seems to be bothering him is below the joint...
I have been reading some of the other threads on joint supplements and have heard MSM is a good thing, but what else should I look for in a supplement?
SmartMSM from SmartPak Equine
I was looking at this because it seems to give a good amount of bang for the buck.
I am also thinking about putting him on a digestive supplement, he shows a lot of the clinical signs of a horse that is suffering from possible ulcers. I had good results using U-Guard before with my TB, any other suggestions?
Also keep in mind that I am leasing this horse and I am on a tight budget.
