my thoughts are with you and Robbie.
Jan. 5/11 I went down to the barn to find the horse who is 3 and boarded here had degloved his hind leg right to the bone!!! He had been jumping into the round bale feeder and by the looks of the blood that was on the feeder he must have slipped jumping out and his leg went under the metal bar as he jumped! This was not a pretty sight at all!
This was taken the first day it happened at the vets....
This was a few days later, we had to clean it twice a day and wrap it. Being in Canada it was like -30C=-22F. He was a good patient and let us clean it without him being a fruit cake jumping around.
That's the bone on the left side, the smooth part......
This was also taken during the first month......
Luckily he never cut the tendon, we kept him in the corral at night so he would rest and was out with the herd during the day.
By August he was being ridden again (he was 3 when that happened and had just been started the following fall).
There is just an line where I think it gets itchy where he chews at it when he's laying down and the hair isn't growing back but other than that you would never know he had done that!
He's now 4 and has put on so many miles on the trails this past spring/summer/fall........
What does your vet think, is it a good prognosis?

My horses are the joy in my life.....

Hopefully a year from now all Robbie will have is a nasty scar and a story to tell. Good luck.
