Hard to tell from your description. If you are concerned you should have him looked at by a veterinarian.
Hook(ed)......on Horses

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

I'm assuming you mean liniment? Why are you using liniment & what kind? How old is the horse? What has been done with her/him? Did the farrier give you any more information? Have you seen any swelling? Has the horse's habits changed i.e. is she/he standing differently, not moving as much, laying down more?

As Hook suggested...call a vet.

Ditto please call a vet.

Farriers are not inclined to offer up advice unless:

1. They are asked point blank for that advice.

2. They see something very wrong that either the owner is not aware of or not paying attention to.

PLEASE call the vet[Smile]
