No, I was never told to wrap his hock, but hey, if that helps...
I'm still considering a second opinion, just to "make sure." I'm at the point where if Rusty really can't ever be ridden again, I'd like to get another horse. But if Rusty could possibly be worked...I'm all over that!
My boss, who has horses, recommended that I get a second opinion at a vet up in Clark's Grove. She says they are priced very reasonably and have extensive knowledge of horses. I guess they found out why her mare was coming up lame and performed colic surgery on one of her horses. So I'm kinda heading in that direction. I just need to "make sure" or something.
The winter weather has not affected Rusty's soundness at all. I haven't seen him limp once. *shakes head* It's crazy.
