With horse’s it’s always something. Freedom’s leg is looking pretty good right now. So it’s Sheldon’s turn. When I took him out to ride and removed his blanket I found a large area of swelling on his chest. Obviously the fluid is pooling at the lowest point, but I can’t figure out what’s causing it.
Normally if there’s swelling, I assume it’s a tick bite. I’ve gone over him pretty carefully and can’t find one. Nor does he seem unusually tender.
I wonder if he got kicked. He’s spent some time out with Curly (who I can’t see kicking him) but it’s always possible he got kicked through the fence.
Sheldon just isn’t telling.
Just as well the vet is coming tomorrow for spring shots and to check Freedom.
