Thanks everyone!!! I was looking at the pictures from the night that it happened and I am just very thankful that everything is working out. It has been a costly, time consuming, stressful road but it feels good that she is doing very well. I have even more love for riding her. Even on days where I am just dragging my butt from being tired, once I get out to the barn I get a second wind and a feeling of happiness that makes my day sooo much better.

I will admit that the days that she was struggling and in much pain I questioned my decision to keep her on this planet... but she always had the fire and spark in her eye that told me that she was not ready to give up. She even proved it a couple of times when I would just so ever look at her foot and she would be threatening to kick the crap out of me (and did get me a couple of times... but I knew it hurt and was in the wrong position myself). She has not kicked at me for weeks now (guessing the pain is gone)

This whole incident has given me a new perspective for life. The fact that in the blink of an eye everything can change (for human or animal) and that hard work and dedication will pay off at some point. I would not have been able to help April the way I did without the help of my BF Cory or my mother. The stall cleaning, assisting with washing and wrapping the foot, the hand walking, feeding, medication giving, giving up time during the summer, the list really could go on. If April would have been at my place things would have been easier but for the time being I have to board so that just complicated matters more.

Lastly I want to thank all of you. The encouragement and thoughts mean the world to me. I will continue to post updates as they come- or if you want to ask anything feel free.

I am very excited to get back into the show pen in 2012... but I am also going to enjoy her more with trail riding, and starting to work cattle. Not everything is based around showing anymore- life is too short for that :)

Hi!! Thanks for asking :)

April has been doing really well. I have been ridding a couple of times a week and slowly working her back up to where she used to be (gain muscle back, endurance, ect). The hoof is looking pretty good and is progressing everytime I see her. She has a trim coming up on the 16th so hopefully I will have a better idea if everything is going to grow back.

She has been standing pretty correct on the foot and I don't see her rest it near as much as she used to. I have attached a pic from a couple of weeks ago (it was warm enough to ride outside at the time!!!).

That's so awesome to hear!!! Its nice to know that if anything like this happened to my horse, or anyone's horse on here, that it is possible to overcome it, depending on the situation of course, but still. Its a relief to know that something like this wont necessarily end up horribly!

She is looking so good!! Im so glad to have had the opportunity to watch her progress to where she is now! You've done such a terrific job with her! Look forward to finding out if her foot will completely grow back! Good Luck

Sorry everyone!! I meant to post this sooner but there hasnt been enough time in the day lately :)

April is doing really really great! We have been working really hard together to get her ready to show again and she is doing well. No sign of soreness or stiffness as we increase the workouts and her mind has been really solid (better then before the accident).

Her shoe was reset a couple of weeks ago and things are looking good. She still has a portion of the back hoof that has not grown back but we have not given up hope yet. If it does not grow back she may need to continue on the shoes to help with support. Here are the new pictures along with what it looked like after the accident (to show the major improvement over the last 7 months). Also a frog is starting to show shape again!!!!

Thanks everyone for the support!!!
