My horse has a bump a few inches below his front left knee. I've been googling pictures of splints and the bumps all appear to be the side of the leg but his is on the front not off to the side. Is it possible this is a splint or could it be something else?
As an update, I spoke with a vet today that thinks it is a bone bruise. He says stall rest for a week and 2 grams of bute a day and see if that fixes things up. If not, he'll come down and look. I have to say I love this approach by the vet since if it's something serious he'll see him and if not it'll ultimately fix him up.
