@Walkamile ,

Thank you so much! It hasn't been easy, but my mother taught me diplomacy above all esle and it is key in this situation since I still need her to care for Piper. My feelings can wait. I have some good news to announce... I had contacted Idaho Horse Rescue early on but didn't think they would be able to take Piper, still, I used to volunteer there and I know the owner. Yesterday I got a surprising e-mail from him and he said to take my Vet back out there and do a follow-up on Piper. Then he'd like to talk to my vet. He IS considering taking Piper!!! That would be a wonderful situation for her and she would get all the care she needs. They have just raised the funds to build a brand new barn with 12 stalls and the owner himself gives hands on care. He is great at wound care and would give Piper everything she needs with a great future outlook. Now we all need to pray that this will happen.

@4horses ,

Hi! That is the strange thing...I was told that she kicked out and got both legs through a roundpen panel. I cannot imagine how that would have happened. That is one of the safest way to keep horses. There was allegedly NO wire fencing involved. However, I called the farrier to cancel his appointment and I found out that he already knew about Piper's accident because his appointment had already been canceled, and get this... he checked his calendar, it was canceled a week before I was informed about Piper's accident. So, Piper had gotten hurt a week before I was ever told about it!!! That made me furious when I found out. The farrier said they were probably waiting for the swelling to go down before sending me a photo.

As far as the first part of your question, I pay board and feed, but she wasn't going to charge me for tuning Piper up. I have not seen the property since Piper was moved to my "friend's" friends' house. I will be going there with the vet and I'll sure check it out! Thank you so much!

How long was it before the vet was involved and the wound was cleaned/wrapped?
Worried about the amount of time the bone was exposed, that can definitely change the healing process and the amount of time.

Pipersmum, I know the situation you're in, but you need to get your horse out of there ASAP, as a matter of urgency, for best hope of her successful rehab! As the clot thickens & you've now found that she was injured (at least) a week before you were told, as you were told it was round pen rails - I can't see how she'd get this sort of injury from round steel tubing(of course, maybe it's a timber pen or such) & wire is far more likely...

I honestly cannot know since all I know is that my "friend" didn't immediately inform me of this injury, but I honestly believe that she at least applied first aid and cleaned and wrapped it right away. As soon as I found out about it and what care is needed I got on her to keep the bone moist and keep the wound clean and wrapped and she informed me that she's been around barns and injuries enough to know that that is what needs to be done. I keep checking in with her and reminding her to change bandages and irrigate the wound. She may be sick of me, but each time I check in, she sends me photos of the wound and then the newly wrapped leg. I just want to make sure it is being done often enough! Thank you!

@loosie

Yes, I understand. I am up almost 24/7 to make that happen. The owner of the local Horse Rescue is very interested in taking her now, but only after I have my Veterinarian re-visit and re-examine her. Arranging that exam at a time that works between 4 different parties (my "friend", her friend-where she placed Piper, my vet and myself) isn't easy! I am waiting on my Vet to set up the appointment with my "friend" and for them to work out the timing. I've made myself available at any time that works for them. I am sleep deprived and stressed, but I want this to work asap. I agree, her telling me that this was a steel ranch panel, i.e. a roundpen panel, makes no sense and probably isn't true. I too want to move Piper as soon as possible. The owner of the local horse rescue cannot/will not take her until he's had a chance to talk to my Vet after a thorough exam. I'm doing all I can to make a follow-up happen. Thank you!

I have no question about your diligence! I was worried about the time between when the wound occurred and treatment. Not being judgmental, the amount time of bone being exposed changes healing time and what to expect.
Going through a couple horses with bone sequestration from injuries hoping you won't have the same.
