    *******UPDATE:*******

    Orthopaedic surgeon will not put a full cast on her - swelling is too bad. He found a SECOND big break that may require surgery. Tendon/ligament injury is also a...

    hmmmmm... that may work! Yeah, I can take things being tight and then just stretch them and work them with time, but that weird shape creates that gap up at the top that then sticks out crazy......

    The horse was barefoot and slipped. Keep in mind, this is an icelandic, and his walk is a bit different than our other horses, so his legs move faster, but never expected that he would have slide...

    Great point, yes, her shoulder is still aching, and now she's complaining of heel and ankle pain - they did x-ray her ankle and that was fine, but I want the ortho to look at everything else as well...

    mg - the worst part about this situation is she had a small fracture of the OTHER foot - where the baby toe meets the foot - at the growth plate (this required a surgical shoe, no cast). She was...

    Yes, we already bought her a new helmet - she picked it out on line tonight cause it's the same one she had (she loved that helmet and didn't want to retire it), but a different color.... :D
  9. My daughter's bad accident 2 days ago - am I realistic?

    Two days ago, my daughter, E (almost 13), and I went to our normal weekly lesson. Her horse has a swollen knee, so she used the "back up" owned by the barn that she has shown along with her own...

    :/ Gigantic cankles and tall boots. Questions

    I'm small (5'4" and around 130 pounds) but I have HUGE calves/ankles (for my size). Seriously, all my weight is in my calves/ankles. I have tried all types of tall boots - semi-custom sized -...

    I have an update - since putting her back out in the field, no stalling even for the night, and the wedges with egg bars, she's sound again. I'll keep working with the farrier and vet - she's also...

    That is totally true. I knew I wanted kids one day, but there's a lot I thought I knew or wanted life to be like, and was adamant that life would be a certain way, and then I had kids, and I had...

    what actually is pentoxyfilline? I'm very new to having to treat horses - my other two have been picture perfect health for years!

    Coffin joint injections would be the cortisone, right?

    This all makes sense. I've used a double jointed bit for my gaited horse (she rides on a loose rein), but working with this TB is so different than what I'm used to. My daughter's paint does well...
