    Default ruptured peroneus tertius for the 2nd time!

    He ruptured his left leg in 2001 and just tore his PT in his right leg tonight. Same thing - cutting up in the field. <sigh>

    Wow! I am so sorry. I don't think anything can really be said, other than,"That totally sucks!!!"

    Default oh, he's always been special

    He got West Nile between the two shots, now has had PT twice, had severe injuries when a pig got onto the farm and scared him so badly he jumped a huge gate (and didn't really make it) has COPD, and is TB nutty. He was so crazy when I trialed him, I didn't want him. However, he turned out to be a wonderful horse, full of personality, loves small children, and is the rock of my barn. Thank goodness it wasn't worse!
