I'm in the same boat, fighting a leg injury. My mare decided to be so smart and jump over the metal wheeled bucket holder thingy yesterday, and caught her right hind leg. She scraped up her leg pretty bad, all the way from her hoof up to her stifle. But the big doozy, was done about an inch below the inside of her hock. She ripped it open, and I called the vet even though everyone who saw it though that it was just a deep scrape, because I was a bit skeptical with how much it was bleeding. Found out that she severed a vein, and now she's got 4 stitches in her leg, is on stall rest for 2 weeks, has to have her leg bandaged for those 2 weeks, which won't be easy :( and I have to give her banamine injections twice a day plus her antibiotics. I just really hope that after all is said and done, that she heals nicely and doesn't have any complications. I'm just glad that I live on the property, and I don't have to worry about making sure that she's getting the care she needs. I hope that Gypsy heals nice and quickly.
