Devastated

Mudpie went mysteriously lame on Saturday. We made a vet appointment for today at 3.

Mudpie tore his right front suspensory ligament.

We had him treated with ACP (Autologous Conditioned Plasma).

3 - 4 months of strict stall rest, and then back to the vet for re-evaluation.

He had to be sedated for the procedure, and I held his head up during the ultrasound.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

Oh that sucks!!

We have a horse at our barn that has torn his rear suspensory ligament, he is not to be ridden for a year, but has been on stall rest for two months and is now being handwalked in the arena (he's pretty wild!) and he was rescanned and has improved immensely.....so it doesn't look too bad for him so far....they are also treating him with stem cells.....I am not familiar with the term you used in your post as to what Mudpie is being treated with though.....best of luck keep us updated

So sorry to hear this. Do you have any idea what caused it?

No clue as to what caused it... He was hardly worked for about a month. I was just doing some light lounging when the lameness was noticed.

Oh, no!!! I'm so sorry. Hopefully he heals up quickly and heals well.

Jingles for Mudpie. Love the pictures too, it's obvious that you love him very much.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Oh man, so sorry for you both. Mudpie looks so trusting and you look so sad. I really hope he has a strong and speedy recovery. Keep us all posted, and hugs to you both.

I'm sorry to hear that.

My stallion just came out of surgery a few weeks ago and he is still on complete stall rest. No fun.

I hope your guy makes a full recovery.
