There can be many reasons for lameness. It is hard enough to diagnose a horse you can see, feel and watch move but almost impossible to do so over the internet.

If he does have heat in his tendons, then you need to ice his leg, or cold hose it for 15 - 20 minute intervals. Take a bag of peas, cover them with a dish towel and hold - or bandage on his leg. You want to limit the amount of swelling/heat/problems occuring in the leg.

Ice or cold hose, every couple hours until the swelling/heat starts to go down.

Listen to the vets advise on what is happening and the reasons why, then make a decision based on his recommendations. Good luck
