~BINGO~ - 2018-12-07 3:15 PM He’s doing well! I haven’t been able to do a whole lot with him, between weather and waiting on the farrier. We finally got shoes put on him two days ago. The farrier hoof tested him and said he’s foot sore but not limited to the heel, doesn’t feel that he’s navicular. Obviously he said x-rays would be necessary to make a more definitive answer, but he recommended putting regular shoes on to help him grow some foot out. He agreed that he was trimmed far too short and his feet are very soft. I lunged him, and he’s much improved with the protection on his feet. Was pretty spunky, actually. I’m happy to say, he’s JUST passed his quarantine time, and I was able to move him over to where the other horses are today. So now I get to go running to the window every time a hear a squeal. Hoping to get on him next week as the snow moves out and we get above freezing.

Glad your farrier suggested x-rays, it will be cheaper in the long run instead of guessing, at least you can rule out a few things if nothing if found.

And of course, no sooner do I type that and he double barreled and got hung up in a panel. Yesssssssss.....

Crap I hope he is okay.

His hind legs are pretty scraped up, no swelling or heat at this point, but he’s definitely sore. Busted up my heavy duty panel, so I’m sure he’s not feeling too hot. He’s now back in his quarantine pen. I’m not sure how to introduce him over if he’s going to have a kick-fest, I don’t have the extra funds to deal with injuries. I have a super long run-in, with three stalls coming off of it. So everyone is separated. I guess I’d rather him kick panels than my other horses, but don’t need him hurt either.

Hopefully he is just a little sore and nothing serious. Horses, I tell ya!!!

He’s swollen up and sore. :( Cold hosed him and rubbed him down with green jelly. He’s a little off, so we will see if he works out of it in the next couple of days.

Could hurt themselves in a round padded room while bubble wrapped. . .

Lol, YES! I’ve been so blessed with the two I’ve had though. They’re tough, gritty horses. I try to steer clear of the ones prone to injury. I had a very expensive (to me) gelding, that constantly was lame, or trying to hurt himself. Sold him, kept in contact, and he’s still doing much of the same. Worst $10k we’ve spent on a horse... I’ll keep my cheap horses...

We don't have "expensive" horses, but even so we've been blessed to not have a lot of hurts or ailments considering we have 5. I pray it stays that way!!!
