Hay everyone, thanks for all your prayers and kind thoughts. Ms. Goldie came home on Tues, 9/9. She's healing up very nicely, granulation tissue is filling in quickly. She's on stall rest at least until her follow up appt. on Mon 9/15. She's such a patient good girl, we don't even need to tie her to do a bandage change. She's the ONLY horse I've ever had that was this good and calm.
We walked the pasture to find out what happened and it was as I suspected, a T post. I have every post on this property capped but evidently, one had come off way down in the back corner where the horses rarely even go. It looks like she irritated somebody and got run through the fence and coming back put the T post through her leg. It is quite honestly AMAZING that she didn't tear out all the ligaments and tendons. When we change her bandages again tomorrow I'll try to get pics. I took the camera out the other day but forgot the memory card. DUH!
She's doing great. Of course we're still concerned about sequestration of that one spot of bone but so far, so good. She's still on oral antibiotics for several more days, and depending what's seen on follow up, could continue for a while longer but we are totally hopeful. Now we're kind of crossing fingers that the scar tissue won't be too binding for her to be more than pasture or broodie sound. Time will tell.
