I just talked to a vet from the Wisconsin equine clinic and have been told that usually they can fuse bones back together, but in Rosies case no. There is a spot that has severe arthritis and surgery will not help and neither will any type of injection. She will progressively get worst and most likely will get to a point where she will not move. Vet couldnt believe that she is doing well with arthritis that severe. He was talking as if she could be a strange exception to the rule but we still have no hope. Well, I guess a decision is now made.

I'm so sorry. It seems even worse when the horse is young & otherwise healthy.
Take your time & really let this news sink in so you can be at peace with it as much as possible.
