Prayers for Reed
 
4 Attachment(s)
Tonight my six year old stallion MS Aurelius (Reed) got kicked and is suffering from severe penial trauma. Due to being too swollen he couldn't pull it into his sheath and even just being hours old he already had some frostbite.
He is in a warm barn now on bute for pain and inflamation and antibiotics for infection and I'm praying damage was minimal.
He is in a lot of pain, but is being a real trooper. I went out with my broken leg and hip in my walker and he never thought once of acting out. Even while we moved tarps and hammered a make shift stall in my tack room, he stood calmly beside me. He truly has a golden heart.
Many thanks to Tiffanny and George Fehr of Fehr Ground Ranch for helping him - making a belly band and a stall.
Now we wait. Get well, my beautiful boy. :-(

Poor guy. I'm a chick and I want to hug boy parts just reading that. Was he breeding when some prude kicked him?

My goodness when it rains it pours, doesn't it? I hope the swolling goes down and he heals quickly and behaves himself in his new stall. He really is a handsome boy.

Ha Ha That sounds.... funny, but I know what you are saying.

YOu have had far more than your share of troubles lately. Hopefully, that's three years worth right there and you'll be home free for a long time now.

Sending prayers for him, he is so beautiful.

And of course that's the fighting spirit from you. Who else in their right mind would go out on a walker with hammer and nails.

Healing wishes for both of you.

Thank you everyone.
He was housed with my older mares and one must have got him. Neither are cycling so it was just horses being horses.
I sure hope this is it - talking to vet on the phone at first it sounded like surgery was needed but he would never breed again. Right now we're waiting for the swelling to go down and see how much tissue damage there is. Surgery might be needed.
I had my big melt down, crying fit.. I'm already emotionally taxed dealing with everything post accident and this... I'm just praying he makes it okay. I'm not sure how much stronger I can be.

You will be as strong as you need to be. You are just in the sit, wait and worry stage right now, and that sucks for anyone.
