ok...sorry it took so long...good news. Well, not as bad as it could have been. The real problem was an abscess that was brewing in his hoof. The big problem was it worked it's way up and broke out through his coronary band. Poor boy. He was in standing wraps and when they came off he was iced to control the swelling in his leg. The abscess made him unstable and he fell in the mud and caught himself with the left leg. But, as he is an 1,100 lb horse...well, his poor leg took it. Sorry, if I am being too much everywhere, I am just happy he will be ok.
He is improving daily and is alert. I have moved him from being stall bound to the 50x60 ft paddock with stall access. Vet says not to worry that Romeo will be fine in a little while. Thank you all for your help and suggestions and keeping me calm.
