    Swollen from the knee down.

    I get to the barn. Do my chores as I wait for the farrier. After the farrier finishes trimming up all 3 of my guys I go to pick out my lease haffies feet and his right front is swollen from the knee down. No heat. Couldn't tell if it was hurting because he was so wiggly and kept pawing. Did not seem painful, though.

    Took temp and it was 100.2 so he's not running a fever. Wasnt lame either but I trotted him lightly after his bute. I don't think the bute worked that fast, though.

    Any ideas what it could be? Should I be calling a vet? I'm going to cold hose it tomorrow if it is still swollen. I'm wondering if he was kicked or something. Never ends,,,

    No offense Cowgirls Boots, but, IMO, you should send the Haffie back to his owner. He is costing you a lot of money, and constantly has problems. He's what, 16? 19?

    You already have one problem horse, why add another?

    He just is not worth the hassle.

    Its really in your best interest to find something that won't be so much work to stay healthy and sound. the fact that you haven't signed any paperwork could be a blessing.

    Your such a bleeding heart, Girl...wanna save them all.

    As far as the leg, idk. No heat, no lameness, no fever, I wouldn't worry too much yet...?

    The only real issues that was serious that I had with him was the colic when he got here. Otherwise, I usually post just to make sure I'm doing the right thing. Haha. I always like getting second opinions.

    Yes, I'm bad. If I could save them all I probably would.

    That's a bad thing

    I have to agree save yourself money and find a new younger horse without issues. You already have one with issues don't need two.

    Maybe just stocked up a bit?...try a standing wrap for a few hours? Rubbing down with a liniment? Maybe try a sweat wrap?

    Spider or bug bite reaction possibly?

    I was thinking maybe a bee sting? I don't know. I would say possibly a kick but no lameness and no heat. Just stocked up.
