    Unhappy Saw Gypsy after her accident on

    I went out yesterday after I got a call on tuesday. Saying Gypsy got kicked and a bone chip cut into an artery. By what they told me she lost 6 pints of blood. And the vet was working on her for about 45mins. They will be taking x-rays next week to see if they got all the bone chips out. Im worried about long turn damage or tissue damage that might affect/cause pain to her lower leg. It happend right around her cannon bone
    The girl who is leasing Gypsy is doing a really great job. Giving her two penicillin shots one in the am and pm. She got a tetanus shot. No leaving her stall for 2 weeks. And bute for 7 days, so Gypsy is a drugged up pony!

    On the bright side. She looked REALLY good! She was fat and had a lot more muscle, her feet looked amazing, nice and round. Not long oval shape like my farrier had them. This was the first time I had seen her since they got her from the crappy barn/BO. But she looked so much BIGGER. I was like uuuhhhh I know your 15h but you look 16h!

    I was a little heart broken to see how cranky she was and to hear how she again was the B*** of the barn. I had worked so much with her when I had her and now all that went out the window. She turned from evil to one of the sweetest at the old barn. Now she's on the battle for dominance again :/ I can't wait till I can have her at my own place, hopefully in june *crosses fingers*

    Thanks for reading! HF is my barn away from barn until I can get back on my hooves...(lol! What a corny joke)

    I'm glad she's doing okay. It sounds like everything went well, considering.

    And also, that was a great corny joke. =]

    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.

    Riccilove- Thanks, I got really lucky with the girl who is leasing Gypsy, considering its a free lease. And you never really know how things are especially since im so far away. (1hr+)

    Dressagebelle- Your mare wanted an advanture with that holder thingy! Gypsy is in a leg wrap to but it has to have hard bandages over the softer wrap. I hope your mare heals up nicely to

    Got the x-rays today and its not good DX Gypsy still has a bone chip in her leg. As of now its not causing problems but they said its a 50/50 chance of it getting re-injured and her being lame for the rest of her life. Or you can have surgery that would cost 3-4,000.
    But otherwise it looks like if it heals up nicely then she can still be ridden lightly just no more jumping :C I havent talked to the vet yet just waiting on her call and she will fill me in with more details and what the plan is.

    Has anyone had a full recovery from something like this? Im not willing to put her down unless its giving her pain 24/7 and she's to lame to even walk. Or can't be a pasture pet. Right now that's not the case. But man all this from just one kick!
