3 down 3 to go

The chiropractor came out to see Sky today. It is the best worst case scenario kind of thing. He went straight to the hip I said I thought was out of place and said "well the problem is she fractured her hip". Luckily right after that, before I had time to freak out too much, he said "luckily it is fixable". He went on to say that it has started healing nicely but he doesnt want her in a stall all the time then turned out to run and buck and all because he doesnt want the muscle tearing. So we will be hand walking and doing some trot work on the lunge line where I cant control her better. He said with an injury like that it takes about 6 months and since we are already 3 months in that we have about 3 more months. She was also really sore up on her withers, which he said is a very common thing from the track horses and said that once her hip is fixed its not something that should bother her but he adjusted her today and is coming back in a month to check back up on her hip and front end.
     So although its not good news at all its nice to know that she will be riding sound (as long as all goes well) in the end. She is looking really good weight wise even though she still has some to go we are way better then where we started! I will keep yall updated with her progress over the next couple months! And hopefully will have a happy one about starting her into work in the next 4 months or so!

  1. I'm so glad it was decent news. It really could have been much worse. The fact that it should heal is great. It follows right along with our thoughts that she had to be sound to race so long...
