    I know how you feel. My thoroughbred in the three years I had her, managed to puncture first her hind leg, got really infected, then punctured at different times both her front legs, pulled the tendon around her knee, then punctured her hip, and the big whopper, tore her superficial flexor tendon which put her out of commission for 6 months with no guarantee she'd ever be sound again. She pulled through fine, though she had lots of restrictions riding wise for the rest of her life, but it was a rough three years never know how long I'd be able to ride her before she did something to herself. Fortunately they were all 'self inflicted', but I hated not having a horse. I finally sold her to a nice lady, who had a blast with her. Keep your head up, and keep looking at all the options, and in the meantime, just keep giving him love, and making sure he's as comfortable as you can make him. Hugs.

    He is having a lot of trouble with his back left. He doesnt really have any mobility of it, though he can walk. He is also dragging it and it is also rotating funny when he walks. He probably has stifle problems and probably has sanctum problems. He is VERY stiff. He probably has hock problems (as in arthritis). ):

    I talked to my mom, she said after Rhedd leaves that I can start to look at leases until Bear is better. "/

    Thanks dressagebelle! I am going to do my best to no just "give up" like I want to. It will help if I have a horse that I can ride and such while he is out. Who knows, maybe I will just keep him and lease a horse for a while, even if he is better, just incase he goes lame again. "/

    Good Luck and I wish you all the best!

    You should do what you feel is best for your horse — I hope something works out.

    When I got my horse, I went all-out and got the complete PPE package with X-rays and whatnot, but I guess some of us have to learn the hard way :(
