You forgot to circle the lump on the outside of the other pastern.
If they are soft and mushy, it's fluid build up.
Regardless, please get the vet out with his ultrasound machine.
Do not ride the horse as I imagine the trot and canter are making matters worse.
Cold hose the legs 2x/day for twenty minutes maximum. More than 20 minutes is counter-productive.
To reiterate, do NOT ride the horse until the vet does ultrasounds.
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
