Drink Comfrey tea - it's called "the Bone Knit Herb." Doesn't taste very good, but it does seem to help. I broke my ankle many years ago and was in a walking cast. Walked a little too far in the pasture and was in agony...1/2 mile from the house. My mare at the time was normally quite a pill, but she was very obliging when I called her over to the stump I was sitting on. She carried me up to the gate with no tack whatsoever, cast and all. Hubby met us at the gate and chewed me out royally, but Sugar, my mare, got a scoop of oats for being such a good girl!
I broke my foot last June. My current mare, Dancer, is a LOT taller than Sugar was, and I have a feeling she would not be nearly as obliging, so I didn't go down to the pasture unless I was on the tractor.
