Hi Cherie We have placed the metal splint down the front of the leg to the coronet, the leg is first wrapped and padded well with cotton wool gauze roll and vetwrap and the splint over the top. It is then secured with elastoplast to minimise any movement and rubbing. The vet is still coming each 2 days to check and redress regulary. Have you had any experience first hand with this sort of extensor tendon injury where it has been completely severed and if so what was the outcome? We have Jas in a 3mt x 6mt stall, laid conveyer rubber, minimising feed to keep him full but low energy and have brought in a quiet shetland to buddy him and keep him clam (which seems to be working), I am very happy for any suggestions anybody can add and would love to hear positive outcomes from similar situations, Thanks :)
