two little bones on leg
my horse has two little bones just above his hoof(pastern) but on all four legs. ive worked with horses years and dealt with many but not seen this before(i dont think) any ideaS? hes not lame or anything but i have heard bad things about small bones on pasterns?

do you actually mean bones or bumps? if you mean bones, those would be side bones. Ecmo Filly that we have, has a side bone on her one pastern. they are extremely painful and the horse will be lame. so youre probably not talking about a side bone.

They could be vestigial (sp?) toes. Do you have pix?
