Just talked to my daughter, Left Eye whinned and walked, although slowly, up to her this morning. She has been eating, drinking and moving around a bit. That gives me hope that the leg is sprained and bruised but not broken.
She will be moving both horses to a new friends house down the road to stay there for a few days in a small turnout and stall. Easier to keep her quiet and keep the wounds clean. And away from the dogs.
She walked all over the property this morning, no fence down or anything that can account for the injuries(the cop suggested she got into a fence instead of the dogs, what a jerk) and both dogs are chained up this morning, go figure.The owners know they are guilty, just won't admit. My son in law will be paying them a visit this morning when he gets home. He will be furious when he finds out about Left Eye. He works in a mine and has no way of talking to my daughter until he gets onto the bus for the drive home. He will be ready to kill someone.
Anyway, she is alert, eating and moving, all bodily functions are working, just lame on the back leg. But, that to me is a good sign its not hopefully a break.
Keep your fingers crossed. The kids just moved there last month after my son in law being laid off for six months. This is an expense they did not need, they have been trying to catch up on bills that were just barely kept going during the lay off. I am sending a good will package of bandage material, medicine for the
wounds etc. If anyone has anything laying around and you want to make a care package, please let me know.
I will keep everyone updated, send lots of prayers for both my daughter and Left Eye. This was the horse she finally felt safe with and was just getting back into barrel racing after a few years(she went off a barrel horse and broke her pelvis in 4 places while in high school) I am just devasted for her. Plus, the first time mom is not right there to lend support and help.
