I know pretty much everyone will have a different opinion, but here it goes:

Last Saturday my 11 month old colt came up from the pasture limpin on his front right leg. I thought there might be SLIGHT swelling in the leg below the knee, hydro for 15 minutes, stall to dry, applied surpass and he seemed better so I turned him out so that if there was swelling. He wouldn’t stock up in a stall. I also have never wrapped a leg that small and didn’t wanna mess anything up cause all my wrapping stuff is too big. 

Farrier cane our Sunday to look at another horse and while he was there checked out the colt and said he thought it was (and I may get this wrong) due to his frog not shedding right and something maybe even thrush got up under there and irritated the frog. He trimmed it and said he should be good to go in a few days. Well today I got out there and he’s not better but he’s not worse.

my questionis: farrier said today when I sent him a video that he would wait a little longer before being concerned...should I already be concerned and in touch with my vet?

If you have a good relationship with your vet I would call and ask for advice. I have been with mine for over 20 years so I can send her a text and ask what she thinks. You might try some rickens hoof paint.

Call your vet in the morning and tell he/she about your baby and ask if you can send the video to them to see, but I'm betting they will want to see the baby in person so they will be hands on checking him out. you might be on the safer side keeping him in a stall or a smaller pen untill you can have him checked out..

Call your vet. Get a lameness exam and take it from there. Good luck!

Thank y’all. I have a really good relationship with my vet and sent him a video from last night. The limp isn’t bad but it’s there. My main concern is it’s not better, but at least it isn’t worse.

You don’t want to screw with lameness in those babies. Things can go south in a hurry with no turning back. I’d get to a vet ASAP.
