    Mud shield from Keratex.

    It is a white powder and I just keep putting it on scabs every day. Usually every week or so I will scrub and clean really well and then re apply the mud shield powder.

    Chia seed is great.

    He did actually take the x ray to rule out a spiral fracture and to make sure there was no fragmentation. He said he saw no other damage to the humerus bone.

    So I am hoping he is right. He...

    We got an X-ray. You can see the tiny fracture perfectly.

    He already knew what was going on when he did the ultrasound, but he wanted the x ray to confirm and make sure there wasn't anything...

    My dad is a doctor luckily and I happen to have good insurance.

    So my horses Surpass is actually Voltaren. (Same thing just different name)

    Vet came out today.

    He has a small hairline fracture of the humerus bone where it meets the point of shoulder.

    Ouch!!! That kick is much higher then where my guys is. The kicker sure is flexible!! :eek:

    Yeah, there is no broken skin but there is a small partial hoof ring right under point of shoulder which...

    It certainly doesn't seem like he has any nerve damage. He is walking fine, he just is being careful to not extend too much so he can guard the point of his shoulder from too much action.

    He...

    I am willing to do whatever it takes. Just on the surpass for a day he looks a little better.

    But if the vet can't see anything on the ultrasound I will take him to the vet clinic. It is...

    Technically the point of the shoulder is on the top of the humerus right? So just looking at where the injury is, it seems there is damage right on the top of the humerus.

    I am using the same vet that saw him a couple years ago with the shoulder kick. Hoping he sees something on ultrasound. If he doesn't and recommends an X-ray I am sure he will send me to the clinic...

    I know exactly who kicked him, ;(

    It was his mother!!! She does not have shoes on. None of my horses have shoes luckily, but she has kicked him once before a couple years ago. (He was very lame...
  17. My horse got kicked in the shoulder, anyone had this happen?

    We got a ton of rain a couple weeks ago. I pulled his shoes in November since we aren't showing until March.

    He came up a little short and lame after the rain and I figured maybe he was getting...

    Hmm. Ok. I will call my farrier out and put shoes back on him and have his hoof test just in case.

    He has been sore before from pulling shoes so I didn't think much about it the first week and...

    I would not just buy the horse back. Depending on where the horse is, I would go see him and see what he looks like and how he is going.

    They can be putting the horse under stress or not treating...
