he trots around and I can't see any limp or drop in his hips or his gaits. All I felt were the bubbles, and I can rub my hand along his leg and he diesnt care.

Yeah the youngin's lol theyre suicidal ... 14-16 oz is really not a lot for grain of a horse regardless of the weight... I feed my filly 2.5lbs of purina foal grow with biotin and bran oil 1x daily and I get crud from people who think she needs more lol they make the horses fatty's around here though... I would slowly up his feed do you hve an approx of his weight? How often do you ride him and for how long?

Yeah it sounds like he just gave himself a bought of bog spavin which isn't anything to be worried about per say. I would just go easy on him when you're workin' on him which I'm sure you are already and maybe consider upping the feed you give him. Do you feed him salt/mineral or does he have free access to one as sometimes things like this seem to occur more likely because of a deficiceny in these.

everyother day and about 20-30 minutes. He's about I wanna say 1200ish lbs he cokes when he gets too much as he eats TOOO fast. We use to put in in a HUGE water bucket like 75gl and slowly fed it to him but now he gets supplements and he needs to eat it all so when we get stalls he will get more during the day.

This is basically a textbook example of how bog spavins are... often you can even push the liquid from one bubble to another... not recommended

he does get a salt block they all three share. They all also get flax in their grain, and he will get biotin soon when fall comes around.i just feel them everyday I don't push them anywhere.

Is there a way you can feed it to him in chunks during the day? If he's being works moderadtely as you say he is and getting 14-16oz of supplemental feed then he may just be dealing with a difficencey in nutrients which is easily fixable. Does he have access to grassf eed 24-7
