    Really sorry to hear there is a fracture.

    Jingling for the best future outcome.

    Yeah, that does stink. But, at least you know, now.

    Sorry Alternate.

    Thanks guys. My horse is a very chill horse on the ground/stall/paddock, however if he does ever show any sign of not being so good measures will be taken for sure.

    Well, this vet opinion sounds hopeful. Just take it one day at a time and hopefully he will mend correctly.

    I didn't mean to be a debbie downer! My post sounded more negative than I thought.

    I would definitely ask for drugs...at least when he starts turnout! Hoping for a great outcome!

    bummer Sounds like he was lucky. I have had a couple with sesamoid fractures that when on to event. Not sure how that injury compares. All I can say is lots and lots of hay, and less grain. Best wishes for a full recovery!

    Ouch! Poor boy and you! Lots of jingles for a quick and painless recovery and a sane mind as well!

    Just give it time, nothing else you can do.
    Jingles all will turn out ok.

    Sending jingles for quick and uneventful healing.
    Don't borrow more trouble, maybe he will be great to bring back. He is older and more mature?, than last time.
    Speaking from experience, Sport has come back to work easier each time he has returned from stall rest.

    Jingles for a good recovery.

    I would not write off turn out when he is healed. There are all kinds of turn out, group is not the only type.

    Thanks guys. He unfortunately wasn't that much younger during his previous time off, however I am looking into doing an aquapacer rehab once he is healed. Talked to the rehab facility that does it to make sure I could afford it. Now gotta talk to my vet and see what he thinks about it.
    I know I don't have to necessarily write off full turnout however it is difficult to find large individual turnouts around here at a show barn, from what i have seen. However a barn I am looking into has a treadmill which might be helpful. We'll see. I was suppose to be doing a trial lesson with them, however since my horse broke that's on hold.
