Claporte, it's a really long story and Ill make a thread about it, but the gist of it is that she lacerated the inside of her fetlock and punctured it straight up into the cannonbone. The vet was able to get her entire pinky finger into the wound! We took her in for surgery to remove the chipped bone and the sequestrum (basically an infection of the bone tissue). She should come back completely sound, I was incredibly lucky that she didn't touch the joint, just the cannon bone! This happened in early august and I was absolutely delighted and relieved to be able to finally remove the bandage for the last time a couple of weeks ago!!
. She is my first horse, and this happened two weeks after I bought her. At first the vet though we would have to out her down because the puncture went through her joint, but thankfully it didnt and she is still munching hay in the barn!!! XD when she hurt herself, I and many helpers spent hours searching for anything she could possible have hurt herself on, but we still don't know. She is no longer in the same paddock, though, and as a matter of fact I keep her at home now in my own private barn!!! XD horses, right? If there is somethIng they can hurt themselves on, they will find it. :p keeps us horse people on our toes. But thanks for the replies, how bad do you think her knees are? I'll post better pictures soon... Posted via Mobile Device
