Customer Question

We have a thoroughbred gelding that is about 26 years old. His right front leg is very swollen up and he is having trouble, naturally, walking on it. He is on grass pasture all day with three other horses but shut up at night. We give him grain morning and night of senior pellets, sweet oats, alfalfa pellets and beet pulp. 24 oz. of each of these.and a scoop of glucosamine pellets. Do you have any idea what might be causing this? Can I send a picture?
