I posted on hear awhile back about my gelding - he is an OTTB who suffered a sesamoid fracture (I have assumed) when he was six. He's 12 now and we are pursuing lower level dressage. He's on a joint supplement and seems to be doing well. He does have some discomfort some days...but mostly he's been doing fine. Someone was telling me today that it is still fusing and that he probably is in constant discomfort...I've researched it, but it's hard to find a definitive answer. The vet cleared him as sound (before I adopted him) and all my vets have said that he is sound as well.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on the "fusing". From what I read, the fusing happens during the recovery...is this right? Or does the fusing continually happen over the years?
Does anyone on here have, or have had, a horse with this type or similar injury? I have been considering Adequan....I will be having my vet out for another evaluation. Just interested in some thoughts and opinions, thanks!
Here are some photos from radiographs a little over a year ago.
