my horse has a huge swelling in front of the hock, which the vet thinks is an infection, (sooo glad that it wasnt ligament which was what we first thought) so he is boosted full of antibiotics at the minute. i *think* that i can feel a thorn, but dont really want to poke around much as it is sore and he is quite lame and picking his hind leg up weirdly.
how long do you think he will be off for? vet said about a month, but imo i think a week - just my view of things though. what do you think?
