Very slight limp
My horse freaked out and fell down in the cross ties today. When I was walking him out afterward he had a very slight limp in one of his forelegs. Slightly more noticeable at the trot but still barely there.
My question is, is it better for him to be stalled until it goes away, or would he be okay out in the pasture. I don't want him running around and hurting it more, but I also think that standing in a stall all day might make it stiff. He is also much more mentally happy when he gets at least half the day turned out. So that might be a consideration.
Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!
