Thanks everyone. I was pretty heartbroken. The vet called again last night with a more detailed diagnosis after sending the X-rays off to another specialist. Specifically the the medial collateral ligament has been torn (in addition to the coffin bone fracture) and she recommended at least 3 months of 24/7 stall rest and a special shoe. I'm hoping the youth on his side will help him recover to soundness! I appreciate all you guys!

i wonder if he might be a good candidate for "irap." that thing where they take blood from the hrose, spin it down to the platelets and reinject. it's like stemcell therapy or something like that. see how scientific and knowledgeable that was?

^I've seen them do that as a treatment for melanomas (the new, so far very successful "vaccine"), but don't know too much more about it!

The ligament tear is really serious on top of the rest of the issues. I would plan on 24/7 stall rest for 3 months and then QUIET turn out for a year. Add the special shoe and compensatory trims with a top farrier throughout. See where the horse is at that point (15 months). IF you have the time and money.

If no better, well it is not like you did not try or give the horse a chance to heal and learn how to compensate.

I am sorry.

For Melanoma, human and animal, they use immuno theraphy, which is different.
In essence, the idea is to force the immune system to recognize the cancer cells as foreign

The stem cell therapy is being used for tendon and ligament injuries with a quite high success rate, the cells are processed from the horse's fat, concentrated and then injected into the affected site. I saw it used with very good results on Saddleseat horse a few years ago
My own vet looked into using it on Willow when she did a pretty major destruction job on her front leg but came to the conclusion that although it would speed up the recovery time the end result would likely not be any better. Its a case of weighing up the extra cost involved against how soon you want the horse back in work. Willow made a full recovery with just the traditional rest and management regime
This article gives some good info on IRAP (Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein), Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapies
