Swollen fetlock

After being stupid on the lunge the day before my horse then came in with a swollen fetlock. This was a couple of weeks ago and there has been no change? He's not lame, at times there is heat and at others there isn't? It doesn't seem to be bothering him although the other day it did look more swollen than before after racing around the field. The swelling is all around the back of his fetlock and its hard, not fluid.

He is basically a retired pet so would rather not do too much investigating, obviously if he needs the vet will call but at the moment it doesn't seem to be having an impact on him.

Any ideas what it could be?
