So my 18 year old gelding showed signs of lameness last weekend, nothing serious but definitely ouchy in his front left leg. Could find no swelling, heat or cuts and nothing stuck in his hoof. Have been keeping an eye on it and no riding to let him rest it, he is due to have his feet trimmed this weekend so can get the farrier to see what she thinks. Just wondering what most people do in situations like this and how long they would wait before getting a vet involved? Its my first experience with having a horse lame so not sure whether it can be common and if its the sort of thing to 'wait and see' if not seeming serious?
