Question stall or not

1 of my gelding came in from turn out limping pretty bad..seems to be shoulder..perhaps a recipient of a barefoot kick. there is no swelling, no heat, no visible injury, hoof looks fine, & he rests with a bent leg. gave banamine & hand walking..how long would you stall rest him...btw its 100+ degrees the next 3 days so everyone will be under fans most of the day anyway

I wouldn't. So long as he's not in a small paddock with a herd bully(or is a herd bully so picks fights), he should be able to rest as he feels the need in the paddock.

Agree with loosie.
I've let him stand out in the paddock - he'll be much happier. It's probably just bruising if he's not accutely lame or swollen.

I wouldn't provide pain killers though - often if you numb down the pain they will think they're better and go running around to injure themselves further.

thanks Kayty & loosie...he was in waay too much pain not to medicate..nares flaring, breathing rough, wasn't totally sure at first if he had a fracture, got him grazing & moving near the barn at 1st until the banamine started working, that 1st night was a tough 1, day 2 better, today we just took a "dog" walk around the property, hosed him off to cool down due to excessive heat outside & he actually rolled after ;)). he is still limping but waay better, and he is standing more square. he is my been there, done that, willing to do what ever you want boy..so it was a biig scare...thanks again!

Is the pain high up the leg or down lower?
Might be worth having the vet give him a once over if he's in THAT much pain. Horses are pretty tough critters and don't like to demonstrate if they are injured or sick until they are really bad, so if a horse is showing a large amount of pain, unless its clearly an abscess, I prefer to err on the side of caution and have a vet look them over.
