Just an update to this thread with a link to Monty's injury:

Monty got a bad ouchie :(
We know for a fact the injury had to occur within a 2 hour window from when I was out with the horses riding, at 4 pm, until Amanda showed up at 6 pm, and since the injury didn't begin to swell until after we were all sitting around waiting on the vet to show up, I'm inclined to think it happened somewhere between 5:30-6 pm Friday evening. The vet finally got there at 8:30 pm.
However it appears to be healing well, thankfully, and on the good news side we also have confirmation now that he is in fact a 3 year old, coming 4, so his papers are accurate and once he heals from this injury, we will begin riding him again in earnest and putting more miles on him.
