I would not have put my pony to sleep at the first sign of bone, I am well aware that there are horses that have been docked.
However, if that bone was exposed an infection would have left him crippled, seeing as the infection would in fact be in his spine. I had a vet out when it happened and followed his recommendations to the letter. If there had been exposed bone there would have been a vet involved every step of the way to ensure he had the best chance of healing.
Photos do not do an injury justice.
Please do not insinuate again that I don't care for my pony, he is my pride and joy.
I appologize... I was
painting you with the wrong brush!!
I am very glad you wouldn't euth at the mere sight of bone!!
I would agree with putting a horse to sleep if it were permanently crippled and it would
be very possible with an infection on the spine....
I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings
