Now he's lame on his right hind, and has 3 wind puffs. 2 just below his fetlock and 1 just above it on the inside of his leg. Could these possibly have anything to do with his lameness? Does anybody know how to treat them?
I was told recently by a farrier that they are from overwork. Don't know how true or not that is.
