I agree, he needs bubble wrap LOL.

Anyway, YAY for no sequestrum!

That little fracture won't be any big deal, I don't think. Goofy boy, he needs a chill pill

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The good news is Stryder does not look like he's forming any seqestrum on his bone. The bad news is that night he bruised it up, the day we took his bandage off, he possibly fractured the bone in his stall. JUST VERY SMALL. Can barely even tell it's there.

Anyway, pictures.



So that middle skin patch is dead skin. That's where it was bleeding from the other day and the Vet thinks it was just a large blood vessel, kind of like a blood blister. Hopefully it comes off on its own but it's possible they'll have to clean it out in the future.

X-ray time.





And here are the results


The big red circle is where his wound is. The small red circle is where the trauma on the bone is from him doing.. whatever he did. (I told you, accident prone.)



Another view ^

And Mr. Man









The vet wanted him back on full stall rest, but said we would know him best. And I don't want to put him back on full stall rest, he is AWFUL - running, rearing, bucking, kicking. Not going to happen. When he's outside he's quiet, eats his hay, kind of just chills.

That and he did that trauma to his bone IN his stall, so I'm not really eager to put him back in there 27/4.
Poor guy! Do I imagine the bone puffed out, so to speak, in the lower circled spot? I assume a bruise on the bone, I hope?
My mare got a sequestrum from kick by a mare we bought and later had to put down (flipped out in our horse trailer, tore it apart... cost $200 to put her down (tore her back leg up very badly), $300 to fix the trailer (still isn't perfect), another $1100 for my mare's surgery... all for that dang $500 horse that we had 1.5 months that I swear was drugged or something!
She has healed wonderfully! 'kay, vent over!!
Here are our jingles. Not sure if I ever piped in before. But I have always adored Stryder, he is such an absolute cutie! Sonata and JD, our horses also send their jingles! :P

^ Yes I really didn't want to do the surgery, mostly because I didn't want to spend the money. When I start investing in a horse more than they're worth (medically wise investing) I start twitching. He hasn't quite hit that point but Surgery would have pushed him over it, and made me twitchy. So at least that's not needed!

Vet says he should recover sound, but might be a little touchy for a bit since the extensorary (sp?) tendon he sliced needs to rebuild itself.

I'm investing in padded stalls and rubber fences. My other horse has yet injure himself in any way (knock on wood) and Stryder would do well to take a lesson. He's seen the vet more than all the horses on the farm combined in the last year. In fact I'm pretty sure he recognizes their vehicles. He was mad when they came and didn't immediately go see him (we had a list of horses today that needed one thing or another done.)

Yikes.. he is a walking injury . Poor guy. If he behaves in a turn out pen, maybe put him out during the day weather permitting, and in the padded stall at night . Hope he heals real quick and does not do any more damage to himself

No kidding on the investing part! I didn't twitch with Sonata.. but then I had to pay to ship her from SC to WA right before surgery... I bought her for $900 from my good friend and trainer, she sold her to me well priced as she really wanted *me* to be the one to buy her, and we knew I was moving 6 months later, so had that cost. Then I had to pay $1600 to get her shipped... then the surgery... My biggest worry with the surgery was that she would end up lame to some degree from it. Knock on wood, so far she has been great, 1 year+ with no evidence of the injury, other than the- possibly imagined- sometimes hesitation to having that leg handled. But then the poor girl went 2+ months with the fractured bone chunks in her leg. Meanwhile she got handled and ridden like it was only a surface cut... I woulda been mad too! Lol
She has been a $3000 horse counting buying, shipping and surgery... but I wouldn't make it a different horse with less cost, as there was just some connection with her the first time I rode her. :)

I bet Stryder does know their car! One would think he would put 2 and 2 together?! Poor guy! Good luck, I hope all works out and he stays healthy for you!

Bandage change, Bandage change.. Bandage change! I'm almost out of vet wrap again. <- sad face.

I'm super happy with how it's looking. He's no longer tender in the area either. It's closed up a bit since Friday.

Before cleaning



After cleaning. We were a little aggressive on scrubbing, trying to get some of that dead stuff off.


He's a growing boy! He's put on at least 2 inches and filled out a lot since this started in December.

he looks great, Drifting! Where do you get your vetwrap? We bought it by the case on Amazon for a great price, in case you didn't know they had it. :)

Nothing much to report except another bandage change. We're stretching out the days now, what's it been, 4?

On the bonus I found more vet wrap in my tack trunk at the bottom. 12 rolls! Now if only I can remember to bring more gauze (and neosporin.)

It's looking good though!

Look at all that new skin growth.



And of course, him looking purdy. He's grown a lot, even the Vet's are like "Wow he's grown a few inches since this has happened. " babies.

He's also shedding like crazy




He's calmed down loads since we changed his feed and let him on small turn out during the day. We'll be turning him out in the small riding ring (80x80) soon during the day. He should like that, it boarders a few mares I'm sure he'll try to harass.

Yay Birthday

This is a special bandage change day!

It's also Stryder's BIRTHDAY! He is official 2 today.












All cleaned up and ready for bandaging (we shaved off some hair.)



He had cake.
