Fetlock question
 
Zoey seems to have a hard nob like thing on the back of her fetlock. It feels like a chestnut. What are they and are they supposed to be there? :?

Most likely they're ergots.
Horse Chestnuts and Ergots

If not, I would call the vet:-)

I'm pretty sure that's what they are. Thanks! :-)
