Now what did you do **GRAPHIC PHOTOS**

Walter, what did you do now?

This is what I asked myself when I got a phone call from my BO at 7 this morning. She said his leg was hurt, and I should come out, and she would call the vet. So I called into work- said I would probably make it for the afternoon, but had to go see what my horse did. I then called my mom, who thankfully was home with a sinus headache, told her what I was told, and we zipped out to the barn (I didnít have gasÖ haha). So we get there and get stuck in the drive way from all this blasted snow. Blah.

Get into the barn. Walter is standing in his stall with his head hanging out. I put his halter on and take him out of his stall. He really didnít want to move, my poor guy. Got him out, and was slightly horrified.

I searched his stall, checked his blanket- nothing he could have hurt himself on. My BO went and checked his paddock- sure enough, he did it out there. He must have gotten caught in the fence somehow. Rolling, orkicking at someone maybe? My BO said Walter came running up at dinner time to go in from the back of his pen, waited for her to grab him, and walked fine into his stall. I think he was too excited for supper to act lame. Either way, she feels really terrible she didnít notice it last night. He should be okay-The vet came out first thing, so Iím not mad at her or anything. Walter did it to himself. He is a horse of course. An accident prone oneÖ

The vet washed his leg, and poked and prodded at the tendon and bone. The tendon that runs along the front of his legÖ the name of it escapes me, is split open. The common digital extensor tendon might be the name of it. The bone is exposed- pokeable. Walter tolerated that. He did not want his leg clipped though, goofy guy. So she sedated him for that. You can see the leg is bruised and swollen. She was not able to stich it, so it is wrapped with something along the lines of furosone, but I cannot remember the name, and then wrapped in cotton and a standing wrap. He is on penicillin, and 2 grams of bute today and tomorrow, then down to 1 gram till Monday.

I have to wash and re-wrap every day. I will take photos to document his recovery.

Oh dear the troubles they get into eh. I the last 8 months Hunter has had a chunk taken out of front leg (from a kick), almost tore his ear off and now just coming back from a torn ligament in his front pastern.

I hope he heals up good!

Bubble wrap is a genius idea Hunter!! They do manage to do the silliest things...

He was feeling pretty darn good this morning!

I picked up a N.A.G Bag and a Likit for Walter to keep busy in his stall. He really likes the new hay net. Took him out, he is walking nice and sound on 2 grams of bute lol.

Unwrapped, sponged down with bedadine/water, and re-wrapped. He wasn't too keen on me washing it. Gave him his penicillin. Tomorrow I will try actually putting the needle in... yikes! We had a small walk around the arena, then groomed and back into his stall.

He is happy today- the farrier was out so he got to watch all the action and see all the horses coming and going.

He is down to 1 gram of bute tomorrow, so we will see if he is walking sound still.

I took a few pictures on my camera right after I took the old bandages off, but forgot to get pictures after cleaning him up. I will remember tomorrow! I think he is looking pretty decent. When I am home from work I will put up the new pictures.

An injury pic now violates the Photobucket's Terms of use?!

On another note, wishing him a speedy and full recovery!
