Poor guy, and you poor soul. I've been lucky with my horses as I have never had any of my horses seriously injured or chronically lame (except for one). Make sure you give him plenty of time to get better and keep him on that bute. It's just not worth the risk, you'll have plenty of time to ride him.

yeah he'll have plenty times to rest. Once the lameness is gone and the swelling is gone I'll just start with groundwork and getting him used to work again. I'll hand walk him through the arena and do groundwork on grass, gravel, roundpen, and the arena to get his feet used to the feelings.

Yeah this is the first time he's been lame. The swelling has been there before, but it didn't cause him to be lame. The one cut by his hock was nasy looking even though it seemed like it was healing good. It was extremely sensitive to touch and he'd flintch if I touched it too hard to clean it. He knew that I was trying to help so he held it as still as he could (poor guy he was so co-operative) so I could examine it and clean it up (or maybe he knew I was suffering also because my gloves were wet on a below freezing day frm cleaning off this cut.).
So I'll keep ya all updated still.

I told my mom that if the case happens where the assistant BO does call (the one BO works Saturdays...the other is in FL for Parelli training...lucky....come on people at least be jealous of the warm weather lol.) that she'll call me at work, and we'll head up.
