Really? Because from what I read, you had the vet out a month
after the accident.
Just the fact that you have never had the vet out before for shots or Coggins or the like is irresponsible in itself. If she was thrashing around and vicious enough that you couldn't pick up the foot, that should have been your second clue that the vet needed to be called to sedate her. Lastly, stop using your age as an excuse for immaturity. Walking out at 11 to check on a horse is far from impressive; any one of us would have done the same. Heck, I've helped trailer a horse with a cracked skull in the middle of the night three hours to OSU for intensive care. That in itself doesn't make me responsible.
In summary, good luck with your horse. Hopefully you can see sense and get this horse the medical attention she/he needs, no matter if she cost you thousands or nothing to acquire.
