    No vet check yet. Haven't even gotten my first paycheck yet! But I found a non caustic or surgical means of getting rid of the proud flesh. I got to ride him a couple weeks ago, and he did really good. That hitch in his shoulder was barely noticable.

    No, luckily. Its right at the joint in his front leg. When I get to do the consultation, I will see what can be done.

    oh im sure its sore.does it touch the ground when walking? or close to it? that much scar tissue will bother him.for sure. lets hope the vet thinks he can clean it it once and for all.then with you i bet with care you can heal it up maybe get a non hurting horse out of it...

    Its a big bulge, that's for sure. I do wonder if its still
    tender, or if he just has poor balance. Whenever we
    clean his front hoof that isn't bad, we can only hold it
    for a little bit before he takes it away

    that would be good..cuts an scars on the lower leg.and pasturn are tough. then with scar build up it gets so thick it gets in the way.sometimes it can be cleaned out.all the scar tissue and then heal up correctly.. so a chance of getter him back to good...

    where is the scar at? lower leg? shoulder? just curious. vets can get expensive and often you can take care of it yourself alot cheaper. a picture of it would be good too..

    Him. He has an old scar from before we got him, and
    has caused some favoriting it seems, which may
    have turned into arthritis. The scar opened up in
    november, after having him for a year with no
