And I can't figure out why!
Went out to feed and I noticed he was dragging his left hind leg slightly. Watching him move he's barely got any limp, but he's bringing the leg under his body more while he walks. He's standing with it the same way, slightly tucked under his body, hoof pointed out. I poked and prodded and flexed and checked for heat or swelling or cuts or sore spots and I can't find ANYTHING. Maybe he has an abscess? I really have no idea.
I'm hoping one of the others just kicked him and maybe he's a touch sore. As long as he doesn't get any worse I'll wait a few days to see if he improves. He's acting like himself otherwise, so whatever it is doesn't have him too bummed.
