Update: many, many thanks for all the info re windgalls. BUT....altho' daughter's Ted has huge windgalls, they are not the problem. I live and learn. Scan and x-ray later, it is thought he has strained one of the branches of his suspensory ligament in his fetlock (v near the windgalls). Bit difficult to pin point as he has v thick skin for the scan. He is resting and awaiting a vet visit again in 2 weeks. He loves the attention but is miffed (I think) at the small holed haynet he now has. Ho hum; been v lucky with tendon and ligaments throughout my horse owning days in that I have never had any probs with them. (Probs with every other bit of the equine anatomy though!)
Thanks once again.

My horse is being rested at the moment, with the horse equivalent of a 'sprained ankle' - vet's own description!!! It sounds suspiciously familiar to what you are going through...sighs. My sympathies!
The vet is coming out to us again on Friday - fingers crossed.
