Kubie doesn't have a fever and his appetite is good. He is still underweight, but is slowly gaining. Could this weight gain have hurt his leg? It also has been muddy during the day, then freezing at night--could he have pulled something then? He is going to turn 28 in May.
I've never had a horse go lame on me before, so this is all new to me. What sort of things might the vet recommend? How worried should I be?
This isn't something you would put a horse down for, is it? I just got Kubie last April, and I feel like we've barely spent any time together.
