grain. Some horses legs will fill if confined to a stall or trailer after
strenuous exercise. May or may not indicate initial kidney problems. Some horses are predisposed to stock up.

"Green" Splints, Strained tendons & Ligaments, Lymphedema,
Increased circulation and injury prevention. Helps tighten tendons.
Splints: Bony enlargements (sometimes up to the size of a half golf
ball) usually on the inside of the front legs just below the knee.
Sometimes multiple smaller bumps running down between the Splint and Cannon
bones. Most often on forelegs but can occur on hind legs.
Caused by: poor conformation, rapid growth, trauma or striking the leg with the other
Speedy Cut: Injury do to striking the inner and lower side of the knee
with the inside toe of the opposite hoof. Caused by: poor conformation, occasional
erratic movement of limbs during turnout or exercise.
Wind Puffs or Wind Galls are soft "spongy"
swellings around the back, front and or side of the fetlock joint. The
inflamed joint capsule distends with additional synovial fluid in an
effort to protect against injury.
Caused by: joint concussion, excessive work while horse
is young & joints are still developing, stress & fatigue due to intense
work load on the joints.
Inflammation of the joint capsule in the front of the fetlock joint is referred to as "green" osselets.
Caused by: Excessive racing of young horses while joints are still developing.
True Osselets: Bony growth at the front of the fetlock joint.
Caused by: late stage development of "green osselets"

banging its knees on a feed manger. Stress on the joint from over work and
poor confirmation. Poor conformation.
* Damage to the joint capsule: If caused by a fall the joint capsule could be
damaged allowing synovial fluid to leak out into the surrounding
tissues. Open knees wounds may need veterinary attention.
Knee spavin: bony growth at back of knee on inner side. Not very
Caused by: Joint stress, trauma from a blow.
