Thanks for the website Ryle, it had alot of good information in it. He's getting his therapeutic shoes put on tomorrow. He's on stall rest and taking a little bute. The prognosis is good I think, the first couple posts gave me a scare. It's fractured on the outside wing of the coffin bone. So we will see what happens! Thanks for the info guys and girls!

Sounds like he'll be OK. I hope for the the best of results for you :) How did he hurt himself? I'm wondering about the misdiagnosis....Did the first vet x ray him? Was the fracture hard to see?

We're guessing that he hurt it in the pasture while turned out, stepped on a stone or just being playful and landed wrong. The first vet did not xray him, he pressure tested his hoof and did the whole flex tests etc and determined that it was in his fetlock, the second vet ruled out the fetlock thinking he was more tender in the toe and that's when we got the xray and he was right. It was a very obvious fracture because it had been several weeks since the original injury and the fracture line was clean. Thanks guys!
