so he's not sound enough to be ridden- I see you call him your pasture puff? pelvic injury explains hind end and other injury explains front right but otherwise he seems to be in good shape. how bad are the injuries? he's young yet so with proper work perhaps in the future a riding buddy?
He is sound as a bell, as long as he isn't ridden.He has had a year and 2 months off now. He is due for evaluation, Xrays, and ultrasounds in July. If he continues to be unsound under saddle he still has a home till old age takes him :)
Pelvic injury was classified as severe. Cut is just that, a cut to the back of the fetlock joint. It should heal well.
IF he is ever able to be put back under saddle we have to take baby steps in the reconditioning. It's how it works with him LOL. One medium step forward, one baby step back. But he is SO much better than he was :) so I call it a win win situation.
ETA: I will see if I can find everything the vet printed out for me and the diagnosis report from the hospital. It was all very informative and I was actually suprised at how often pelvic stress/injury is misdiagnosed as hock or stifle problems.
