Leaving aside all the speculation, accusation, and pontification, there are very many things that are worse than a quick end for a horse.
Wasn't there a COTHer pushing that for awhile? Recommending it for horses, as well, IIRC.
I, too, would b more concerned about the electrical hazard than a horse kicking the glass.
Right up there with people telling me "I thought you became a DVM because you *loved* animals."
I do. But I also enjoy eating and having a roof over my head.
As well as needing to pay for the drugs...
A quick check shows the average elementary school teacher salary to be close to mine, a college professor for over 10 years...mind you, you couldn't pay me enough to put up with the crap that grade...
You may have to pay rent and a basic electric fee, but you will be using less wattage at home if you are not there turning on the lights and using the washer and dryer, etc.
Similarly, you will not...
I must have lived a very sheltered life, because in over 30 years of working in the veterinary profession (as a tech and a DVM), I have only met one who professed a "hatred" of cats.

If it had been a raccoon, NO ONE...
Perhaps she could consider a career in gross pathology, where she only has to handle dead things.
Allergies and flax connection?
Omega-3 Fatty acids. Anti-inflammatory.
Not even woo-woo any more.
And my horses find flax *very* palatable.
In fact, the old lady waits for me to garnish her...
I walked to school by myself in first grade, including traversing a causeway with deep water on both sides and (gasp) no fence.
Somehow, I and my classmates survived.
Just got 50# for 39.99, which is about what it's been running locally.
I am appalled and embarrassed for my profession.
Oy. A colleague of mine had dealings with her.
Back away quickly.
It seems like just last week you were welcoming him. I'm so sorry to hear he has left you this soon.
He needs a salad with homeopathic dressing.
And crystals hung in his stall.
Many years ago, I offered a free lease on a horse. I was going back to school, and had no $$. He was a generic grade Morgan, helluva trail horse, and capable of low level dressage and jumping.
I believe you're thinking of Vitamin E.
I'd decrease the bute now.
I believe that pyrantel tartrate breaks down fairly quickly upon exposure to sunlight.
Sounds promising for a full recovery.
Not to cause you unnecessary worry, but do keep a close eye on that leg--if it was trauma, there could be more damage than is immediately apparent.
IMHPO, the main benefit of mineral oil is a marker to see if anything is passing from one end of the GI tract to the other. And it's not foolproof for that--it can move around an obstruction.
Definitely try an antiinflammatory.
Therapy for radial nerve damage is primarily supportive. Prognosis is dependent on the extent of the damage--whether the nerve is damaged or severed. I start with DMSO and NSAIDs, and support wraps...
Looks like radial nerve paralysis.
