An update - injury occured on: 14-2-12. Current date: 16-2-12, Thursday.

I went to see Chinga this morning before school and give him his anti-biotics. His bandage was still on well, which I redressed yesterday so I decided to leave that till this afternoon. His doing okay, bored of his stall. But luckily, he has other horses around him which for now seem to be keeping him amused.

I'm currently feeding him mainly just hay, in a hay bag. Though - I don't think Chinga's getting the idea that it's there to amuse him and not frustrate him. Wound wise, it's doing okay. Honestly, after two days we were not expecting to see any huge recoveries. He's stall on 24 hour stall rest except his allowed to hand graze on controlled grounds for an hour or so a day.

For the boredom thing... I gave Mudpie a jolly ball and he's been entertaining himself to no end with that thing! (This was the fantastic solution to him galloping about and flinging himself into the air while expressing his feelings with tremendous bucks and leaps... and when he was originally too sore he walked around his pen flailing his neck and head around) He throws it, rolls it with his nose, carries it around, stares at it, and occasionally gets mad and stomps on it. It's all great fun!

It's also an excellent alternative to further injuring his fractured splint bone.

So just to keep your man entertained, you could try one of those(:

I'll probably give him a ball or something later on, but right now he really needs to stay still. His movement is very confined, I know Chinga when I've given him balls and other toys in the past. Get's very playful.

You've been soooo good to your horse. I think you need to have a serious talk with him and explain just exactly how NOT NICE it is of him to do this!

Wishing speediest recovery!

Hoping he recovers soon! Does he like the toys that you can tie up for them to chew on? We have a few horses at my barn that absolutely love them. One even ate a whole apple treat/toy in two days after biting it so hard the treat part broke in half... Lol

Thankyou very much - it's really good to hear how I take good care of him right now. Even though I know it was no ones fault and that nothing could have been done to prevent it. It was just very bad luck.

I've got one at home, which I usually put into his stall when his in the night before shows. I don't think he pays much attention to it though, but maybe over the longer time period he will. Can't hurt to try!

There was the one I said he bit and broke in half.. It looks like a hanging apple. The top and bottom are plastic and the middle is the treat. Maybe he would like that? I know my horse is never interested in things like that haha but all the others at my barn seem to love it

Today we went with the blue bandage. Yesterday was pink, he was far from impressed with this idea.

He also got to go out in the grassy round yard for awhile to graze, he really did enjoy that!

Today we decided to take the shoe off the hoof which isn't injured. Purely because he isn't in work and this will give his hooves some time to 'recover' from the shoeing. He's coping well so far with this and hopefully we won't have to put the shoe back on.

His injured hoof, not a lot to say really. Nothing's changed, still on antibiotics, bandaged and stalled everyday. I did let him out to eat some grass again today

An update on where Chinga's at, I'm not sure how long this is going to be. So bare with me...

Recently we've had a lot of rain! The medical paddock we had him him became very wet, so we made the choice to move him into our larger jumping arena - with some other horses. So hopefully, he won't get all excited by all the other horses and the room and start galloping around. That would be bad... At least his got some more grass, so that makes him very happy.

His off his anti-biotics, which is good. Though we're considering putting him back on them. Still bandaging every day, if not twice a day with the bad weather. Hopefully, at beat I'll have him back in work in about a weeks time. If this rain clears up and gives him a chance to heal. If it doesn't clear up soon - we'll consider putting him back into his stable.
