    Yay Roberto! So glad to hear he's doing well, even if he was ornery and ate his cast

    Thank you everyone!! :) I've been so happy this past week because of the good news with him - I'm so glad I can share my excitement with you guys! :)

    Ughhh but I do have some not good but not bad news to report. Unfortunately Robbie cannot heed the advice of everyone and stay out of trouble..he broke his splint while preforming some stall acrobatics.
    I guess they were bringing in the horses and Robbie decided to have a little "fun" in his stall to show his excitement about having some company inside. He not only reared up but gave a nice little buck in his stall. It's a good thing I wasn't there or I may have killed him haha. He snapped the splint but thankfully was 100% sound after all the shenanigans he pulled. The girl who looks after him when I'm not there took off the splint, changed his bandage and duct taped the crap out of the broken splint to use it temporarily until the vet came. She did a marvelous job! She said his leg was absolutely fine, he was happy as ever and walked like normal. Grrrrrrrr. If it's not one thing with him, it's another!!

    Here's the fixed splint (looks great eh?!):

    The vet came out the next day with a new splint and to check him over to make sure his boyish stupidity didn't hurt him further. Good news is that he's just fine. He's continuing to heal up nicely and hopefully next monday the splint will come off and he can start actually hand walking!

    Oh and for some reason all of the original pictures of the injury got deleted off my thread? So I'll re-post so everyone can see what this started out as. :)

    So this was the original injury 5 months ago. Yummy huh?
    And that completely severed the extensor tendon, opened up right down into the joint - the vet could put her fingers right into the fetlock joint.

    A couple days later after cleaning, cutting, etc.

    A couple more days after before they cut out the infected tissue, proud flesh, etc.

    A couple more days later (he was in the horsie hospital forever haha)

    Me gots another updateeee! :)

    Robbie is doing fantastic, splint is off and he is being hand walked more and more every day!

    We had a little "incident" last week...went for a walk in the arena (per vet's orders) and Robbie decided to run away. He broke free, ripped around the arena, gave a little buck and then stopped and waited for us to go get him and put him back in his stall. Normally, I would've been pissed (not to mention probably had a heart attack) but he decided to do all of these shenanigans 100% SOUND. I think that was his way of telling us we are "protecting" him too much because after his escape, he's been soooo much happier and calmer haha.
    But we called the vet out right after he played in the arena to check him over and everything is going great. He's healing faster than anyone would've thought, the cut is completely healed with skin and hair growing over it. :) So she said the splint could come off and just to keep the leg bandaged with no bows and standing wraps. We are also allowed to hand walk him 3x a day, 2 laps around the arena. He is so happy now he gets to go on daily "adventures" haha. week the bandages come off during the day and back on during night so he can get used to having no support on that leg. And then *hopefully* he'll be outside in a small stall/paddock March 1st. YAY!! Once he's been outside for a while, I can start riding him at a walk. I can't wait!!

    Now pictures haha.

    Lemme outtt

    Hellooooo? Friend?

    Oh I'll be pretty then. :)

    Nothing too exciting as he's just walking :) but at the start of all this I never would have thought he's walk again.
