    Default is heat transfered/felt more easily through synovial fluid?

    It's me again.

    as some of you know ..my horse has arthritis of his LF knee with a good amount of synovial fluid filled over parts of it.

    It was injected about 3 months ago, however recently he is off at the trot (which I think it is the LH)

    however, the RF knee always seems to be a bit warmer than the other over the synovial fluid filled parts.

    which I considered to be normal in my theory since I thought the synovial fluid would transfer the heat from within the knee making it feel warmer than the other normal knee

    so that is my question : Can heat be more easily felt over a knee with synovial fluid pockets (even if the knee is normal temp/not inflamed) making it feel warmer vs a regular knee

    any thoughts? I hope I was clear in my question
