I am sad to report that when my mare came home and we started working her we noticed some things going on.
While they were slight, I decided to have a lamness eval done before proceeding with her training.
Note....I am upset with myself for not purchasing a health and mortality policy on both my horses before all this happened. Now it will be a pre-existing.
So I had a vet who is not my regular vet do a lamness eval because she was already out at the barn.
What we found was a bit shocking and depressing for both my mare and myself.
We found femero-patellar filing in her stifle joint.
She is now considered a grade 1 lamness which is not bad but still.
I am awaiting a prognosis and surgery estimate from a local surgeon.
My regualr vet will be out this afternoon to do another evaluation.
I am also upset with my family at the moment. I will post in the horse talk area about this since it really doesn't belong here.
So I will let you all know what my regular vet recomends and post later this evening. I will need to go to the barn and hope to make it to my class at college this evening.
Please pray that the prognosis will be a good one.
And my pocket wont take too much of a gouge!
