    Henny is doing amazing. His eyes are no longer twitching and he's walking a lot better. He's nosy as usual, trying to help the vet change his IV bags, and helping her clean up the millions of piles of his poop. He's eating like it's going out of style, drinking, and peeing like a russian racehorse. He's actually getting so into his hay bag, that they've had to rewrap the bandage over his IV cause he keeps loosening it. The vet said his attitude is incredible.

    The vet said "It's getting to the point where what I can do for him, you can do." So Henny will hopefully be coming home soon! He'll still be on steroids(I believe) and some bute. As far as recovery time, there's not telling how long it will take. He said one horse took 3-4 months to recover. And as far as recovery, there will be some permanent quirks. At best, his left ear will always droop and one of his eyes will always look down a little. For gross motor function, it's too early to tell if he'll get back to 100%. I swear, I love this little boy so much. I don't care if his ear droops, or he can't see as well, or I may never be able to ride him. I care about him. All I want is for him to be comfortable and happy and healthy. I'll be going out to visit him again in the morning. Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts. It means so much to me and Henny.

    I just read the first page of this post, and now the last - I can't tell you how happy I am for you and Henny!!!! I agree 100% about 'not caring if his ear droops, or can't see as well, or if you'll be able to ride him'..... I love my two sweet mares exactly that way, and 'rideability' in the future would be my last priority if faced with an issue like this. How lucky Henny is to have you for a mom, and I wish you many happy years ahead with him - not to mention nuzzles and kisses :)

    Thank you. This post made me tear up. I try do everything I possibly can for this little boy, and it means a lot that it shows.

    The vet just called and said Henny can come home! Now I just gotta find a place for him to come home to. He was on Pasture 24/7, so I need to find a place that he can be on stall rest.

    Glad he is going home. I guess you need a loose box! :)

    You going to either separate them or send the 16 month old packing when he CAN go out again? No need to invite more injury...

    Maybe she needs to go someplace where there are lots of older horses that will teach her some manners?

    I'm trying to keep him at a different, safer facility for the next few months entirely. The filly is out in the pasture with her mother and my two geldings. My larger one is the lead horse and he can make her obey with just a look. However, she constantly challenges my pony Bubba. Pinned ears, lunging, kicking, biting. All Bubba has to do is back up like he's going to kick her and she runs off. Only to come at him again 5 minutes later. So I'm hoping to keep Henny somewhere else on stall rest for the next few months while he recovers.
