OH NO... I am SO excited about the mare you leased me of Karens in foal to Argosy.
Is there ANYTHING we can do? PLEASE don't hesitate to call you have my husband/my cell number. LOTS OF PRAYERS AND JINGLES HEADED ARGOSY WAY
Thanks all...the good thoughts are really needed and I appreciate it. I have so much nervous energy, as I wait for information from the films.
This morning when he was coming in though his small paddock headed for the barn to eat, a mare in a lower field that was is heat. He's around the girls all the time (with a big alleyway inbetween pastures. Normally, he prances about, struts his stuff, then goes "oh well" and heads right to the gate to come in for breakfast.
Instead of doing that, he headed for the gate nearest the field where the mare was (not even adjoining) and kicked out sideways to let me know he REALLY wanted to go see her. His RH leg went through the top wrung of the pipe gate and upon trying to free himself the whole gate came down, he fell and became hopeless tangled in bent gate...wadded up in the corner of the field with both hinds trapped. A pipe had twisted into a spiral clamp around his RH cannon bone with his body weight bearing down on it. God love him, he had to "sit" (hind end trapped and front legs straight out, mashed up against the fence) encircled a cage of twisted gate while I frantically found help to pry him out.
The vet could feel "movement" of bone shifting when he examined the cannon bone and is quite sure it is broken. Now, I wait to find out the extent of it and "what next".
He's resting quietly in his stall in support wraps for both hinds. He got Bute IV so he's a comfortable as to be expected.
The wait for the xrays is agonizing.....my poor boy. He knows he's in trouble, as he's really looking for rubs and consolation from me.
