Week after horse trailer rollover check up
Horses got their week check today after the trailer roll over last week.
Both are doing amazing, considering how it could have turned out.
Tippee the barrel mare has healed well, cuts on her face are starting to peel the scabs off and pink skin underneath. Above her eye and lid is still puffy, but going down. Legs cuts are healed and scabbed over. The vet checked her back, she is still very sore when pressure is applied, so he wants my granddaughter to start slowly lunging/ponying her with no weight on her back for another few days, then start light riding.
Willard, the gelding is healing okay. His mouth stitches are still a problem, some healing some pulling apart. Some gunk in there,but showing healing. His neck still has lots of edema, the muscle in the front of his heck was all tight and contracted, its relaxed now and back in place, but lots of edema at the bottom, which is expected. His cuts on back leg are healing well, as are the rest of his cuts. He has seroma pockets in his neck and back from being thrown around, but moves around and does fine.
Could have been lots worse, they could both be dead. So, just time and more time,especially for Willard.
