Soooooo, Josie and I had a bit of a scare yesterday! I turned her out with the others as usual and they were running around. Its super muddy out there and I haven't thought anything of it until yesterday!
Fancy, the bay mare who lives with Josie in her round pen, almost collided with her and to avoid it, Josie put on the breaks and her hind end went out from under her! I saw the whole thing, she was hyperextended and was sitting like a dog with her hind legs straight out in front of her. She had a bit of trouble getting up as well.
Afterwards, her lower right side of her belly started twitching/jerking and scared the bejesus out of me! I couldn't get a hold of a vet for an hour and a half and when I finally did, I was told not to worry because if she is going to abort, there isn't anything anyone can do about it, but he didn't think she was going to.
Finally got a hold of my awesome vet this afternoon and he said it sounded like a nerve being pinched that resolved itself. WHEW! She is now only going to get some hand walking or something in muddy weather!
She was absolutely fine and loving her feed and blanket today, no discharge, normal behavior, so I think we're good, although Im still watching her! The pics are from yesterday! She is sooooo much bigger at 228 days than she was last year, lol, probably because she is no longer fit! We did ride in the Christmas parade on the 7th, it was fun! No spazzy moments like she had last year with the lights being waved in her face :)
