Stall rest and turnout advice
Ok so I am brand new to this forum and can really use all the help I can get! Here is the background:
I recently received my first horse a month ago, he is a rescue more or less. 4yo OTTB gelding. He is beautiful and sweet, and I absolutely adore him. His last race was November 5th and he ended up fracturing his front right knee. When I went to see him the previous owner told me she had a vet look at him who said he could return to the track after 6 weeks stall rest. He is now a pet not a racehorse and I am only looking to do light riding with him nothing crazy once he is healed. I am still trying to get his vet records released to me as well as his x-rays. Anywho, I want to put him in a medical paddock so he isn't on total stall rest. I have not had my vet come look at him yet because I do not have any of his medical records yet and I have been getting the run around.
Thoughts and suggestions are very much welcome!!!
