Your boy is very handsome! And the picture is beautiful!

Hopes and prayers for him healing!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Hoping that you two find ways to pass the next months, explore new pathways, see things you might have missed as you were whipping along and over fences before. See the small things like spiderwebs, or misty breath or hear a heartbeat or catch a snuffled greeting. May the long wait have its' own revelations.

i know exactly how you feel having had an older horse damage his suspensory. I had the added guilt of the fact I was riding him at the time he damaged himself!

Give him time. My vet said that any tendon injury will take at least 18 months to heal.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Thank you everyone for the encouragement! We had a small victory tonight. Zee has been spooking at one end of the arena, where the scary barrel monsters are (both under saddle and handwalking). I was FINALLY able to get him to focus on me and relax as we walked past them tonight. I was so proud of him! Just as big of an accomplishment as any of our greatest lessons. As we were walking tonight and he'd turn and look at me with those sweet eyes, I reliazed that there will be a million moments like this I would never have with him if we weren't given all this quiet time together...

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
