Help gelding cant walk!!!! :(
- i last checked on my horses at 9pm last night giving them hay. they were all
fine. i was out of town all day and didnt get home til 8pm tonight. a
gelding of ours CAN NOT WALK ! when he tries to he walks as if he is stiff
or severely drunk. on all 4 feet. he will not let me pick one of his feet up
to see if theres anything in them. he is stumbling badly when he tries to
walk, so bad that i thought he was going to fall on me at one point. he is
not sensitive along his spine, and i feel no heat anywhere along his legs or
hoofs. he ate all his grain like normal, and is drinking water. he is not
showing the whites of his eyes or acting scared. this gelding was ridden
just yesterday and he was fine (it was a lite ride for about 10 mins--
nothing strenuous or on pavement, nothing like that) he did have a small
change in diet 4 days ago, we started putting 2 ounces of wheat germ oil in
his grain to keep his weight up.
he does have a small lump above all his feet that was NOT there yesterday
when i picked his feet. i do not know what to do!!! is there anything i can
do? what could this be? i CAN NOT call a vet out here as i'm already up to
my neck in bills from an ill pony over the weekend... please, please help..
advice, or what i should do.. i am in full dispair panic mode here!! i cant
think of anything that can set onto a horse like this in only one nights
please email privatly so not to clog the lists. thank you,
