Robbie has the fanciest cast I have ever seen! Wishing him a speedy recovery.

So glad to hear your horse is doing so well now. Nice manly cast you chose for him. He might wish to get you back for that later down the road. ha ha Hope he continues to improve quickly.

Love his xmas cast!

Wow... He sure is lucky to have someone as dedicated as you!
Sending get well thoughts your way for a quick and full recovery!

PS - When I saw his first cast before reading I did not see the word "ouch" ...LOL

Thanks for all your wonderful comments guys! :)

Robbie is doing fabulous, walking like normal with the cast and starting to be more comfortable staying inside 24/7. I take him out for a little walk up and down the barn aisle once a day just to make sure he isn't lame (if he is lame, that equals infection which means he has to be put down) and he is using his hurt leg wonderfully. He doesn't even walk with a limp, I swear he is walking like there is no cast on him at all haha.

And it looks like he will have his holiday cast on until the first week in January, then he goes back to the vets for another surgery and a "less intense" cast will be put on. It'll be more like an air cast for people rather then the fiberglass one he has now - kind of a transition from a hard cast to stable bandaging. :) Hopefully I can decorate his new cast like I have done with his past 2 ones haha.

WSArabians - Hahahaha, when I posted that pic on facebook my aunt was like "why would you put a swear word on your horse's cast?!" It does say "OUCH" but it definitely doesn't look like it upon first glance...hence why there was no wording on his second cast hahaha.

I do have some new pictures of little Bobbert for you all! He's being the perfect patient and I can't wait for him to heal and get back to riding. :)

...always trying to get food

Took my exam study materials to the barn and taught Robbie statistics!


Sooo cute :)

So glad to hear he is doing well! Give his handsome self some scratches from me.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
