I am getting copies of my digital xrays tomorrow from the vet, and will post them so ya'll can see the cannon bone after all this mess. I had both xrays, and sonograms done of the leg just to make sure there wasn't anything floating around in there!
    Holy cow... to clarify... ill fitting boots- you mean the leg covering boots right? Not some weird freak thing where he had hoof boots on and it caused some weird pressure issue, which seems impossible... but then horses have taught me that many things I thought to be impossible, yeah not so much!
    Will he be near normal when all is done?
    Poor thing, and poor you! I can't imagine how trying that must have been/is to deal with!

    The boots were some kind of cross country type brushing boots. It was our first time going cross country and my 15.2 hand paint, was wearing the boots of a 17 hand warmblood. They didn't fit correctly and I had no idea. :(
    Surprisingly, he's been completely sound through this whole thing. The only time he was markedly uncomfortable, was when the hind legs were swollen. Both vets that I employed had stated that LOTS of exercise was necessary for a complete recovery.
    He disliked me poking and prodding at the hole in his leg, so much so that he attempted to blast me a few times... haha! But once it started to close up, he had no opinion about it anymore.

    That is awesome that he has been sound! He sounds like a keeper as far as his tolerance, goodness! My mare got pretty tired of me wrapping her leg a couple times per day for a few months after her surgery. I can only imagine what your guy must have been like!

    xxdanioo, your journey with Walter was a huge motivation for me to keep drudging on with all the cleaning, wrapping, and veterinary care! You and your wonderful boy are so brave and strong through such a long and arduous healing process!!
