Try letting cold water trickle down his leg to try and take the swelling down. The cut may have got an infection?

RInse it off with a hose for a good 10 minuets with cold water, then i would add Blue kote, where u can buy for $6 at http://www.horse.com/item/blue-kote-wound-spray/SLT170412/

keep him in stall rest for a couple of days! hope he feels better!
