Thank you for sharing & adding to our knowledge here. Great idea w/the tennis ball & you are very good at bandaging. Does the vet think he will recover enough to ride again & not be lame? He is a handsome fellow!
Cacow, Kody was already a pasture puff due to arthritis, but if he hadn't already been retired this probably would have done it. Vet's prognosis is for a pasture sound horse who is a bit gimpy at times.
Thanks for the compliments on the old guy! He's a character, very full of himself!
Here we are at day 46! Wound is looking fantastic. I have had to remove the tennis ball because despite the padding underneath it, it caused a pressure sore. However, he is still bandage solidly from hoof to hock and it has been almost 2 weeks since I have seen him knuckle over!! YAY! Still a long road ahead of us, but he is definitely on the mend.
