This is just lovely

My horse got kicked really badly, had the vet out and its muscle damage and a floating chip in his elbow.

Eeek!

I am so sorry - however, as long as you can get him through the muscle injury, I've heard of horses having successful removal of bone chips and going on to be sound and sane :) Good luck :::hugs:::

he is going to be sound. Its not in the join so the vet said it wont effect him. He just has to be on bute for 10 days, dmso on the elbow, standing wrap on the opposite leg and just let him rest

I'm sorry, glad to hear he will be okay. Make sure you wrap both legs though, not just the opposite. Think about how goofy you would feel if you walked around all day with one foot in a shoe and the other barefoot?

What a nasty surprise! I'm sorry. Good it's not a joint so he'll be sound again!
