My filly got injured on her hind leg on March 23rd. I've been to the vet twice with her and the prognosis for a full recovery is good.
She is only 4 years old and a VERY active girl, we jokingly call her ADD-horse . She always plays with stuff; ropes, buckets, brushes... anything she can get her mouth on.
For 8 days now she's been on stall rest and we're not supposed to even hand walk her until early next week.
I bought her one of those hanging grain/molasses toys and for the first day or two she even 'played' with it, but now, she just stands there, very 'depressed'. She eats all right (though won't touch her grass hay, only eats the alfalfa/mix), drinks and 'poops'... but that's about it.
We have our gelding in the paddock right next to her so she's not alone, they can 'visit' through the panels...
What else can I do to perk her up? Should I start hand walking her already? Any ideas on how to make her happy again?
I know there's nothing 'medically' wrong with her but she's definitely tired of being locked up....
