My Horse, Cricket

This past weekend i had my horse to the vet for vaccinations and also to get his Coggins test done. All went well there but then this morning, his neck has a swollen spot about the size of a cantaloupe in diameter and raised up quite a bit. He is having a problem lowering his head to graze so i hung his hay up in a tree in a hay bag. Tonight i plan to put a hot compress on it. Poor guy. I have seen this happen before and it goes away in time. But it is the nature of the beast and i now know next time to do the shots separately for him. Don't need him being off again.
He and i have bonded well now. I look forward to getting out and riding him soon with friends.
