Unhappy PLEASE keep Calle and Flower in your thoughts!

Title says it all, please keep Calle and her horse Flower in your thoughts tonight! Let me explain...
So, my friend Calle and I were riding for a while, and after we were done we set our horses loose in the arena to roll. Brandy was done after one roll, but Flower kept rolling (she has recently discovered it, so she loves it) and we don't know for sure, but we think she pulled something when she was rolling, and she jumped from a roll (didn't even stand) to a rear and all four feet were off the ground..Next thing we see is her flying on to her back and all we heard was a huge thud, and she was down...We didn't think she'd get back up, but she did...and she galloped the entire arena, we couldn't get her to stop, I couldn't help because I was dealing with my horse who was freaking out because she didn't know what happened to her friend, Calle didn't know what to do, and then all the sudden she just stopped cold, and wouldn't budge. She kept having these spazms, but those were the only movements. We got the BO out to check on her, and we think she broke her tailbone, so we set her out in the arena for the night...she FREAKED when Calle left, but after a while she calmed down. Now Flower is old, so we're hoping it didn't hurt anything more than her tailbone. So please keep Calle and Flower in your thoughts, I'll update you guys on how they are doing tomorrow.

You think she broke her tailbone? Has a vet been called? That's not exactly something I'd leave until the next day.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
