    I read somewhere where it said it's no reason to panic, but you might need to rest him for a day and rinse the area with cold water.

    My dads old gelding had them. They were a constant, and it never gave him any problems. We did have him on 4-flex once a day though, as he was quite old, and I was still working him fairly hard. The people I've talked to all have said that its nothing to worry about, as long as they don't get really hot, and he's not sore on them.
