My god.....well he is just being plain difficult isnt he!!! Maybe the calcification has simply increased as the bruise has come out?

When tenny suffered a kick to his canon/splint bone (it was on the inside but towards the very front so it caught both of them) He went lame for 3days, it then continued to be hot for a week and then went cold, but it continued to grow in size for the next 2months??

Thank god as he was so young (6months) as his leg has grown the calcified lump has been stretched and is barely noticible anymore, but if he had done it at 4yrs old then im pretty sure that it would have stayed the size of a golf ball?! My vets too were worried about it pressing on tendons/ligaments and interfeering with his leg structure but thank goodness it was in such a forward possition it settled and has not caused him any trouble since?

Its a time thing I suppose.....?

I've decided all horse people are mad myself especially. Could someone please tell me why I bought a 4 year old tb? Oh yes this is why, http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oid=1053705475 I still think I'm looney though. P.S. That's not me that is his old owner

My tongue is bleeding. I can't hold back anymore.

What I think is mad is watching that video with the horse being jumped so hard and so high at the young and premature age of 4. I think it's mad that a rider is jumping that height with such a poor position and release. I think it's mad that the horse is not trusted with any freedom of the rein but is still pushed over such high jumps. I think it's mad that an abscess has progress to a serious injury with serious time off.

I am not mad. My horses aren't mad.

Maybe you should reconsider how you, your "trainer" and "vets" are handling the situation.

Ok everyone breathe I only ment that to nonhorse people (parents,boyfriend and nonhorse friends) that I look ridiculous getting myself all worked up spending thousands of dollars trying to make my horse better. I told them all he is my baby boy, I love him and I will make him get better.

However I can see how nonhorse people wouldn't understand that I'd give up everything for my horse. I think it's a unidentified disease that all horse people have to make us forget about the money and time we spend on large smelly animals that poo all over and then roll in it. We understand why but they don't.

As for the video I was pointing out that I bought him because he did everything willingly even though he had no idea and the owner had no idea, and so much more was wrong with the picture.

He has officially lost it now though being on stall rest (several world class vets orders).

I was walking him undersaddle practicing lateral work at the walk and such so he doesnt forget everything. He was being a bit of a **** because he actually wanted to work. Anyways he saw something in the bushes outside of the arena flew backwards reared up almost went over backwards but instead sat down on his hocks and twisted around to land on his side and my leg. We are both fine just bruises and scrapes but my poor boy was in such shock at falling we had to cover in him 90 degree weather. So he is going to get turned out(little worthless turnouts but he will get out a little at least) now I don't care what the vet says he has become a danger to himself.

Oh and kristy I'd just like to point out it was never an abcess.
