Sorry to hear about that! I can totally relate, I have one who is just now getting back into the normal swing of things. He had a bad tendon injury & was on stall rest for months with minimal handwalking after the first month. Being a 4 yr old stud, I dreaded stall rest with him even though he's a good boy.
I second the hay net with the small holes to keep her busy. I also hung milk jugs to bang around, a lik-it and the barn cat already lives in his stall so he had a buddy around for what a cat's worth anyway. Lots of grooming & just hanging out. I got to the point where I'd sit and read Equus mag out loud to him, balance my checkbook, etc.
After the first couple of weeks he decided the pampered life wasn't so bad. He quickly became the shiniest horse on the place even in winter fuzzies :) He was also the guinea pig to teach my daughter how to braid. He was getting all done up by my 6 yr old more than her barbies!
I did take his grain away, minus a small amount just enough to give him supplements & meds. He was on bute for a bit, SmartRepair, Yucca & U-guard. I think something for ulcers is probably a good thing for any on stall rest as it can be a stressful situation for them.
Hope she has a complete & quick recovery!
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
