    The good 'ole State of denial

    I've had my OTTB since August 1st. I had her 2 weeks when she was severely kicked and ran through a gate. She has had her hind leg wrapped, no riding, and turn out in a small paddock for over a month. This was the first weekend where she actually looked like she was making progress.
    Turned her out this morning and with in 10 minutes she was trotting around and slipped and her hind end fell out from under her. She continued prancing around and looked okay. I left for lunch and came back and she was 3 legged lame and trembling from head to toe. I called the vet out for an emergency visit and he did x-rays on her hock.
    I just got a call with the results-
    She pulled the ligaments from the bone in her hock and pulled off bone chips with it. In addition she fractured her hock. The vet said he has never seen anything like it and is going to send the pictures in to the vet school tomorrow to get their recommendation on how to proceed.
    I've border line lost my sanity at this moment (just got off the phone) and really REALLY need some jingles and support for my little filly. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif

    You have my heartfelt sympathy, and I will be jingling like mad...but wait until the vet school sees the pictures. It may not be as bad as it looks.

    Hang in there.

    Thanks, I will let you all know what the vet says tomorrow. I feel better, but I'm worried about my little girl.
    I'm gonna try to attach a picture so you all have a face to put with your jingles. Hopefully this will work...(This photo was taken yesterday http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/no.gif)

    ooooohhhhhh! What a nightmare! Do you have insurance? I know a woman who has a horse who fractured her hock. She survived, however she is no longer ridable. If your mare has good breeding she might be eligable to be a broodmare. Or, they might try something revolutionary and she may be as good as new.

    Good luck, jingles. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif

    I know there is someone on this board who has a horse who fracture his hock and is now (I think) competing (what discipline I do not remember). I hope that post sees this!

    YoungFilly- I was going to get insurance on her, but the insurance company said they needed a bill of health from my vet saying she recovered from the first pasture attack before they would give me coverage. Since that injury occured pre-insurance company, they would not cover her. And the results of that have still not completely healed- it was a pretty nasty puncture wound that actually went to the bone.
    The puncture was finally scabbing over (after over a month of proud flesh) but she still has some swelling from it (LH ankle).
    Now, the fracture is her LH hock. The vet wrapped her whole LH, but after only a couple of hours yesterday had swollen from stifle to hoof.
    I'm supposed to hear from the vet today, so I will let you know what he says I need to do. I don't think I got a wink of sleep last night. Waiting is the worst part.
    I did get a phone call from the stable and they said she is still munching away contentedly on hay, so that makes me happy. I was afraid she would be in a lot of pain and go off her feed, etc etc.
    Poor baby just turned 3 years old in May- hopefully that means she will heal faster (I know human kids bones heal faster than adults do).
