X rays for horses legs?
I recently found out that my 3 year old standardbred that I bought (thinking she was too slow to race) that she was retired due to a fractured pasturn. I genuenly believe that the person I bought her from didnt know. I know the person I bought her from, and I trust her. The people she rescued Winter from on the other hand, they lied to her. Anyway I'm thinking of getting x rays to see if its healed, but I don't know how much I should be expecting to pay? I know they aren't cheap. Then maybe trying runners relief? I've already made up my mind, I'm keeping her. When I bought her even though I didn't know about her leg, I bought her to break to ride, I decided then that even if I could train her, I'd keep her, and pay as much as I had to to get her trained. Well I didn't have to, she was a dream to train, but to me it's the same thing, now I have to pay as much as I have to to fix her leg. I owe her that much, she's been passed around from owner to owner enough. And we have a real bond, so I'm not selling her, as long as she is happy and comfortable with me. So does anyone know how much X-rays are, and maybe how much runners relief costs? And is there anything I can do in the mean time before I do all that? If it helps she was retired from racing 5 months ago, then went to pasture for 3 months, then I got her 2 months ago, unaware of her past injury and trained her w/t under saddle. I stopped riding as soon as she got sore, and did research to find out what's wrong. Now that I know, she will not be ridden or worked for quite sometime while we fix this!!! Thanks
