So my 3yr old Arabian x Morgan mare kicked through the fence & ended up with her rear stuck on one side and her front on the other! Thankfully the fencing shoved down so she was able to get out. In the process she took out her front knee all the way to the joint/bone with her own hoof! So our wonderful vet came straight out 2 sleepy shots, 1 tetnus booster, bute shot, & a twitch she got washed, shaved & treated.
The horrible injury to her front leg is wrapped but all the other cuts & contunesions (sp?) I need to treat. She will allow me to do everything but her legs from the hock down.
Now she is a greenbean filly that wouldnt even take a halter when we got her. I have brought her far in the last 3months but this injury has set us back!
How do I get her to let me clean & treat her legs? She was to the point of a major melt down this morning so I left off and treated the rest of her upper injuries.
One more thing....this is the first time she has ever been hurt, she is wigged about everything.
Thank you to any and all help!
