“Stocking up” horse legs, or swelling of horse legs - why?

Louise Butcher

Great simple article to explain reasons as to why your horse’s legs may be swelling in the stable.

Interesting also that bandaging suggested to potentially exacerbate this.  Thoughts could be restriction of lymphatic flow and blood flow, over heating of legs, and infection through fungal and bacterial build up in warm damp conditions.

Take a read and let your thoughts flow!
