Ugh I can't win with my horses!

Well Y'all know I posted about Shaggy being lame. Well I go out to check Shaggy and He, Blaze and other old man Pozi had once again broke into where the stalls are. I got to get the halters to start getting them out and I noticed Blaze isn't moving to much but Shaggy is limbing around coming to the tack room where I was at. I look over at Blaze and he's just standing with his eye closed and he's back left foot up I thought he was dozing. Well I go to put his halter on I noticed why his eye looked shut. It was almost swollen shut with a cut on the eye lid! This eye is also the same eye he's blind in. The odd thing was in wasn't bleeding. I don't know if that's good or bad. Then I try to get him to move and he can bearly move on that same leg he is so holding up! So now not only do I have Shaggy limbing around but now i've got Blaze bearly able to walk as well. I checked all over no heat in it anywhere but he was in obvious discomfort. I left him in where the stalls are instead of stalling him cause I didn't have any shavings. Ugh Im not getting out this mess with out a vet bill am I? Lol

I don't think I can help you much but I hope your horses feel better soon. Strange that the cut wouldn't be bleeding though.

Just thought of this... Did they get into any feed? If so he might be foundering. I hope not.

no they didn't there isn't any feed just a half empty tack room but I did think of founder since Blaze has foundered before. Since its his back left leg I don't think its founder.

Nope, they have ganged up on you so a vet bill is imminent. Good luck with your guys. I hope they are both better SOON!

Oh and you might want to think about a calming supplement. Not for the horses, but for you while you stress over their injuries.

Horses in distress always call for a calming supplement for the owner lol. Seriously SAM-e works well in high stress situations for us owners. It's a little expensive, but it helps.
