Jelly, one of my 12 year old student's best friend, is going for surgery today. He came in with a little cut last week which kind of gave us all a bad feeling... after some hosing and wrapping and waiting, her came out of his stall three legged lame on Monday.
Xrays found the a bit of his splint bone had broken off and would need to be removed. Fortunately the surgeon thinks this is a text book case and he should be just fine after a couple weeks stall rest and back to work in a month.
His surgery is at 1:00 today (with the same person who just removed Subk's new horses lesions, FWIW) and we have one mopey, worried little girl running around.
