I just bought a new horse the day before yesterday (8 yr paint). We have runs off the back of the horse stalls made with 5' metal stock panels. So yesterday I groomed him and walked him around the whole farm and let him graze, so he would get to know the place. Then I went up to the house for lunch and he tried jumping out and got caught on his back end, the whole panel is bent in a v shape now. I found him an hour later, worn out and getting attacked by the gelding on the other side. Anyway, my bf called the vet and she said it happens all the time and not to worry. She gave us pain meds for him and is coming to look at him in 2 days. He is eating/drinking and peeing/pooping. I can get him to walk and trot normally without effort. But he is obviously sore and doesn't want to be touched on his back legs or groin area. Is the vet right not to worry? This is my new baby and I am freaked out. I shut his run door and am keeping him quiet in his stall. Any ideas for preventing him jumping in the future? He is a big boy(16h) and I guess he would have cleared it if he didn't jump from a stand still. Thanks in advance for any advice.
