Annie sprained her ankle.

Not really, she stressed her deep digital flexor tendon. Silly goose just HAD to make a dive for the gate before Momma left. she's swollen and a little warm, but not like she's a balloon on fire. She doesnt seem to think its to severe, so we're not going to ultrasound it just yet. If she's still lame at the walk in two weeks we will.

But on a different note, this is the first time she's been lame since i've had her, and it seems she becomes a sweetie when she doesnt feel good. She was nuzzlin and snugglin and huggin me without any bribery the whole time I was hosing and dressing it.

Vet says 2 weeks stall rest. Hand walking ten minutes a day, cold hosing 20 min 2x a day. Bute, and liniment oil and an analgesic gel. After two weeks, we'll see how she does. And give her maybe two hrs or three hrs turn out a day for a couple more weeks.

Heres a few pictures just to make me feel better.

Thanks:) I don't think she'll mind the vaca, but she's going to have sooooo much energy month from now. *sigh we wont be back to our real training for more like three months now.

Here are her legs from last night. Not much swelling, and she's feeling much better. Upon sending her out (at a walk) last night, she decided to hippity hop up and kick out at me. If she had connected, it would have been dead center to my chest. Oh cold weather and young injured horses. *sigh she reared, and kicked out at a couple for the geldings in our barn, which she's normally much better behaved about. Darned this stall rest.

Anyway, its the one with the white sock. Tell me what you see, the other one is there for reference.
