Last night my horses were rough housing after a rain storm. This morning we went out to find a fence & gate laid onto the lawn, and one of our horses limping. I did take a video of him limping, see below. He wont put weight on his right rear hoof. He will use the toe, but will not put weight on the heel. I've tried feeling up and down his leg for heat or swelling and didn't see anything (although I'm not too keen on detecting these things, so it doesn't mean it wasn't there, I just didn't detect any).
Our farrier will be out this afternoon to check it out, and after his suggestions, we will call out the vet. I just want some advice in the meantime.
- I know it's kind of hard to see... I wish my hubby would have walked him slower. :/
