    Default Welcome back to horse ownership...sigh

    I was given an ottb last week. She arrived wednesday, and I had left for California on tuesday....then thursday morning she pulled her shoe (at the walk...talent) and stepped on a nail in the center of her sole! She has been pretty much non weight bearing since. (She has been seen by two vets, xrayed, etc)
    I got home today from Cali to see my new, very lame, very sweet horse...sigh

    I will do that soon, still recovering from Cali trip. The good news is I insured her tuesday night, so if she has to go to UGA or NCState, at least she is covered

    Wow, she didn't wait long to make you worry did she? Hopefully all turns out well for you and you get to enjoy your new horse soon!

    Yes, welcome back to horse ownership, but more significantly, welcome to TB mare ownership!!!!! Jingles to you and her! I hope she recovers quickly. I am sorry this has happened but maybe she is getting the drama over with early.

    I haven't had a solid two-week period of soundness in three months with my pony I got last year. Just invested about $1000 in a knee three weeks ago, and now it seems maybe scratches on the rear has her off again. And the backup horse, BF's mare while he's gone, is one giant stone bruise on both fronts because he decided to pull her shoes to save money while he was gone...even though I ride her more than he does when he's home, she's been shod for five years AND we live on a marine island nicknamed The Rock. Because we have, yanno, rocks.

    So...I feel your pain, both in the I-have-a-horse (or two)-and-can't-ride and the pain felt in the pocket book.
