Re: New IR Diagnosis

Both ringbone and sidebone. The ringbone may be what your vet is calling arthritis but  can't see it extending down into the joint on these photos (may be visible on the originals).  Sidebone doesn't cause problems once it is mature but it can be painful while changes are forming.  It may also cause discomfort if the changes are very extensive, as they are in your horse.
