ive onlyfelt them on the outside, and go away when preassure is off his leg, but comes bak wen he stands on the leg.im going to try to find a new ferrier as i found my horses needed to be redone after a month of having him out to do them. and durning the summer it usually takes longer to look like they did. he isnt on a hard training its about 20-30 minutes every other day. as he can only focus for a short time. hes out 24/7 with fresh water daily, a round bale and oats with supplmets

that would help the outside but I dont think your horse is experiencing pain per say...

You ought to find something that you can work into his feed as an anti inflamatory like the pellet form.

If you would like to be natural about it which is what I try my best to do for my horses is use devils claw which you can pick up at a health food store. I recommend the powdered form of it and feed 1tbs 3x per day until you see improvement. this helps with inflamation and horses with a history of joint problems. it's also to my knowlege not illegal in the sport world.

I never feed more than 2tbs and I dont feed it longer than a week


I also would get glucosamine especially if you don't do the devils claw supplement because you may have a horse whose joints are just more sensitive.

it's actually quite common for things like this to happen to younger horses they tend to grow out of them though.

it's quite possible he did it to himself just dorkin' around ya know what I mean? The issue at hand is you need to figure out what caused the problem because it could be signs of something more serious like OCD which is osteochondritis dissecans or fractures

he also doesn't appear lame or in pain correct? Just a fluid bubble like spot? I would feel on the inner portions of his hock and tarsal joint region for minor swelling which would help to rule out some things.
