LOL
Well, if I ever found you like that I would give you a shot of whiskey (or two) and haul you to the vet to stitch up.

Thank God you were there to take care of him.
Oh, I could see he was hurting. He wouldn't load, in his stall he would walk on his front end but keep his hind end planted if he could, moved really stiff, and did get rather grumpy before he was stitched up.
There was no way I could let him go with such a good chance at recovery.

At a farm I used to work at they had an old stallion come in who had been bitten by a donkey during a (failed) attempt to breed and could not retract himself. The BO made a full body sling for him! It was a custom job, but allowed him to be ridden and actually reduced the swelling cause he wasn't swinging all over the place.
Got BIT?? That is a new one.
The things horses can do to themselves...

So, they have you back in the hospital? Are they giving any kind of release date? Oh, poor Reed-That just looked awful, but the second picture showed so much improvemnt-praying for a full recovery on your lovely boy. Hang in there w/the PT & hope your recovery is going well also.

I was out for a few days (24th - 27th) and then he wanted me to come back. I'm out again tomorrow until Jan. 7th and then he wants me to come back and stay until the 21st of January, when I have an appointment with my surgeon.
Because there was little to no improvement with my hip (it hadn't fused as they wanted it too) everyone hit panic stage. I'm not allowed to weight bear so they don't want me home alone (I sort of get that but it would only be from 8am-1pm really), and I'm in for 5 days of therapy - which I've been doing on my own over my pass.
So.... I'm crossing my fingers I can let him let me go and just drive with my mom back and forth to physio, as she drives past the hospital everyday anyway. This appointment on the 21st will determine alot. If there is no improvement, we'll wait another month and then I'll be looking at a hip replacement instead of patching mine back together. Crossing my fingers this isn't the case.

Reed is doing really good! I guess the swelling has gone down and he is very talkative and happy to see people and is much more energetic and moving around easier. Ought to be raring to go come breeding season. :)

If I knew how to knit, I would do one of these for all my pipeline boys.

Reed is doing amazing! He is moving around with a lot of ease now and today is day one with no pain meds. He talks to everyone that goes in the barn and is eager and happy to see everyone, from my two year old (Who feeds him gum drops) to the very pregnant miserable mare (Due in two days) that is stalled beside him. Every morning when I go to feed he is sound asleep and jumps up like I am just the best thing he has ever seen and nickers happily! He is a trooper.
