    That's horrible! It seems like this year has been bad for several horse-owners, you and me included!

    Where is the swelling located? Firstly, we washed him down (water only) and put on new rugs as we were unsure if it was something he had rolled in or not. A lot of the swelling went down on its own (over a period of twenty-four hours), if you wanted to you can contact your vet and get them to give your horse an anti-histamine to help take away the swelling faster.

    We're cold hosing the areas which are still swollen and that is helping to take away the swelling. Bute is an option in some cases, depending on what's going on, although we're trying to stay away from this with Chinga because of his stomach ulcers.

    I'd look at the hay, smell it, etc. Does it seem 'off' at all? Any sudden changes in the environment?

    Our horses lol.. Sky has been having a funky injury year too. Last year was bad as well.

    I'm hoping after this blood panel we get some peace for a good long while!

    And I hope you and Chinga do as well!

    Dont worry maddie, it just means he is good. Its always the ones that have talent that get injured. Stay positive and don't give up! He will get better eventually:) xx

    Thanks everyone.

    It's not the easiest thing to stay positive when new issues keep occurring. Although, I'm sure after he finishes this course of antibiotics and the last of his swelling goes down he'll be back to being 100% healthy and ready to start working/competing.
