Well, guess what Zoey did today. I was lunging her and out of nowhere she slipped off all four legs and now is lame as a dog and kept trying to kicked me when I tried looking at it. Hmm, have any trucks up your sleeve to get horses to not kick while checking the inside of her stifle? Posted via Mobile Device
Ill have to take a picture of my geldings hoof from his absess, it looks like his hoof can peel off! Looks worse then when it happened but when it did the third day he couldnt put any pressure on his front left leg and it was almost 3 times as big as the other leg.. and becuase he was standing weird while it healed his back and pelvis is out and he's all mad and cranky about it.. going to fix that soon! With a different vet that works over a hour away..
Picture overload sorry..
This happened just after I bought my first horse, he went through about 4-6 electric fences, jumped a barbed wire fence, face planted, got caught in the barbed wire ripped himself free, bolted around the paddock with a herd of horses I didnt know. By the time we caught him he was so full on adrenalin I couldnt bring his head down, he was dripping blood all over his chest and he couldnt control his bladder he was so high on adrenalin and panicked. We put him in round yard for afternoon to calm down. Owners werent too pleased that all their fences were down and i've held that guilt ever since.
But anyway, this is what happens when a inexperienced rider gets a green horse and doesnt know what they are doing.
Ignore the horrid barbed wire in this photo. Where he was at the time they put him in a massive paddock without telling me...it was really upsetting.
