Poor boy

Sooo today I went out to ride and my normally super easy never injured keeper of an arab haha was off :/. I at first notice that his previously bowed leg looked particularly funky today so I asked my BO she said he was fine just to cold hose him after the ride. Well I walked him a bit however when I asked for the trot there was an immediate limp and so I let him go a few strides to see if it was just me but nope still there. So I hopped off and lunged him around me a couple times both ways and yup there was a slight limp. So took him over to my BOs lesson and was hosin his leg by the arena when the trainer came and looked at him she said he did in fact look off just standing. Well needless to say he got a good hosing and put in one our pasture pens with the older arab gelding tonic so he could move around more and see if that would help him. The only thing I could think of was he could be sore as I have ridden him about 45min the past 5 days and he is only used to half an hour 2 maybe 3 times a week. Anyways monkey boy was cozzying upto tonic sharing food when I left so hopefully no problems tuesday when I can next get out there.Just a couple quick pics of the two,yes tonic is a bit skinny we are in the process of getting weight on him however its proving a challenge to find something to work for him him and odyesse are our veterans.(there is alfalfa and grass hay in the other tub behind them as well )
