Well, he's still favoring the leg. I was not able to do the Circling Game to see if he was still lame because three of his four legs were stoked up (swollen) and he was kinda ouchy on his feet.
I have him some bute to help with the swelling and the pain and hopefully that will take care of it.
I talked to the BO and he thinks that the stocking up and possibly the lameness (I don't think it's being caused by the cut on his leg anymore...unless he fell) could be caused by the hard ground. It was extremely muddy then it froze almsot over night. So it's all jaggedy and hard, so it defiantely might be the reason he's so ouchy and stocked up.
The last time he got stocked up, the vet said it was because of the second cutting...something about it sometimes makes the horse retain water and some horses retain it in their joints. Well the BO did say that he threw in some second cutting, but it wasn't anytime recently...he thinks it was Monday.
So I asked the one lady who is always up (and the Assistant BO) to look at him tomorrow morning (since I work) and if it's still the same, to give him another tablet of bute...and she said if it gets worse, she'll call me. If it does get worse, I'll be calling the vet....
If the lameness and stocking isn't gone by Monday, I'll be getting the vet out.
So grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrr
