Well you guys, I've lost my camera, and never downloaded those pics, so its been driving me crazy, lol. i always go out and get pics of my babies.
I did take her to the Heart of Texas Equine Center on Saturday, and got really great news! She had a blood clot over her knee which was probably caused by falling down.
it was there a while, so it didn't have any color to it, it just looked like water. He put a solution in it that will cause the skin on the knee to tighten, so she doesn't have a blemish and wrapped it to help it tighten even more.
She was such a sweety, and was way better than when i have to get her butt stiched. Then, she had to be sedated twice, and twiched. She was still jerking her head over every thing. That just lets me know how far shes come to accepting humans around her!
Im so excited, she will be able to perform as best she can, with no problems with that knee. I just have to hand walk her again and keep the bandage on as long as it stays in the right place and keeps pressure on the knee, until it heals.
If she bangs it again, he can drain it and put an iodine solution in it to make it kinda scar up, so won't bother her, but will look better than a bump on her knee, but it went totally down until it was flat, so hopefully, we won't have any more problems. Its sad, but Im going to keep her penned up and just let her have free time in the round pen with some lunging. Something always seems to happen when they are put out in the pasture, and its nothing good!
Thank you guys for being with me and trying to work things out! I've definitely learned a lot about this experience!
