He didn't play that much that I know of, at least that's what the rehab manager said and she watches them all day. He was in half a acre by himself (well with a old, blind goat) with nice grass no holes or anything and completly flat, and no other horses that he could see or hear as that's how they make the paddocks for gimp horses at this rehab facility. Oh and the fencing was plastic made to look like the nice white painted wood fences with a hot wire on top. It's flexible and not very strong if he had hit his leg on it it would have broken.
The splint is on the outside of his leg so it's doubtful he kicked it and it was cold when we put him out there we had him checked by 3 vets. We had him on a calmer and it did nothing he was on it for 3 weeks and still being a grump he has a really fast metabolism so he gets super large doses of regular sedative when the dentist and such people come and it still only lasts like 20 minutes so that's probably why it didn't work.
He was turned out in sports medicine boots. And to clarify there was no damage whatsoever to his splint bone we had it xrayed mutliple times. The splint is abnormal calcification on his interosseous ligament that has now grown over his splint bone towards his suspensory.
Anyways we got it injected with Vetalog which is a glucocorticoid that combined with the shock wave,iceing and cold hosing, massaging sore no more into it and believe it or not bananas and rock salt (prescribed by a horse homeopath lady). It's supposed to balance the fluids in the body and get rid of wastes
but I know it works because we started that first. So I'm praying for his speedy recovery and realizing how spoiled I've been riding him with these two monsters I have now.
