No, she got hurt with the trying to escape the arena and diving into the corral panel. See the video under the thread Penelope crashes through gate. It is horrible. If anyone wants to know how I was able to video that it was because I was working her (I thought) in the arena and she looked so pretty that I wanted to have video of her running without my hand shaking the camera all over the place like it always does, so I set it up to record and kind of forgot about it until after the accident when I was waiting for the vet I checked it and the entire thing was captured and about 20 minutes of crickets chirping in the backround afterwards. I edited that out. The only good thing about it was that I was able to first off show the vet when she got there exactly what had happened. And the bad thing was I was able to (once I could leave her alone) go home and play it over and over in slow motion, backwards, zoomed in, etc. just trying to figure out why why why. It didn't help me at all, just made me relive it over and over.
She is doing much better now. She had internal injury and was anemic and in shock. We are 3 weeks out now and finally I am able to take her for some walks and even a couple of trots on the lunge line. It will be a very slow process getting her back from this. And I worry about (sweeney)(sp) because she took the hit on the point of her shoulder. I guess only time will tell, but at least for now she is not lame and seems to be improving.
Sorry for the long answer.
After the added expense of the accident the $300 really wasn't all that bad. If only i had done that before. If only I had used a lunge line.....If only .....
