I have a friend, who's older gelding, has a swollen lower leg from a slip in the pasture. He must have landed on something because he has a nicely swollen leg. I told her the only thing I have ever done for my guys with injuries is cold hose them. I admit, Rex is the only guy to have multiple owies and I had the vet look at them all...............Disclaimer: I did have flint on the property when he gashed up his leg bad. I did the same thing - cold hosed him until the Vet got there. So, what do you guys recommend with a swollen leg?
