    Thanks for the reassurance
    It just had me in a panic cause I woke up to the call telling me what happened this morning.

    haha, thanks. Yeah, he's my big studly man, loves the ladies o_O
    He used to be really aggressive too, but we've worked that out for the most part.

    Irishbutterfly he looks beautiful all cleaned up! I can't tell you much about the injury other than to ask your vet what you can do with him while he heals, Training can and should continue during injuries it just has to be scaled back. You are training your horse from the moment he sees you till the moment you leave his sight as is anyone else who comes in contact with him. You may not be able to work him in the RP but takeing him on walks once the vet says it's safe and working on tieing and grooming and ground manners until you can do more. As for jumping it just depends on how bad the injury really is. Again he is beautiful!

    Thank you all so much. Unfortunately, the vet came out. He sliced a major tendon that would be costly to fix and might not even work. We've decided to put him down and out of his misery.
