In case you didn't know... getting your back leg OVER the top of your paddock fence doesn't end well. How or why he decided that may be a good idea beats me. Sadly that means no Caber Farms. We were supposed to leave two weeks from today. Instead we get to spend our August wrapping a leg wound and hand walking. Thankfully he didn't get both legs over. And thankfully it all seems superficial so it's just allowing the wounds to heal. Because of the location on the front of the hock it may take a little bit of time. If all goes well he can go back to work in two weeks. We will hope for that!
Very thankful that I was at the barn teaching when it happened so t was caught instantly. Poor guy thought his leg was falling off. Non weight bearing (not because he couldn't be just because it hurt), reaching around and smelling his leg, kicking it out, etc. He thought his leg may need to be amputated! I have an amazing vet friend that came out and got some sedation on board, since he was very painful, so he could wait for the vet in a little more comfort. The vet put a bandage from his hoof up to his hock, gave me some antibiotics, and called it good.
So for now I will leav you with some Rebecca pictures while I email the next show secretary and hope I get my money back 😩
