It has been a long while since I posted anything then some pictures! I think the last real blog post was before Luna’s surgery !
If you don’t remember – because it has been so long – the wound that Luna had on her leg ended up being because she had one very broken splint bone!
That was a fun surprise ! Not. She was scheduled in for surgery a few days later and off she went! The clinic is literally right down the road from the barn which is nice. Not so nice is the fact that dingle berries tried to fold her self in half trying to come back out of the trailer after she went in. That was fun. Great way to give me a hear attack horse.
My vet was nice enough ( is it nice ?) to let me watch the surgery. My god was that nerve wracking. And running behind. Pete’s penis cutting took longer then they thought it would. Poor Pete. We couldn’t really see much due to how they drape them and the fact that the viewing window is on the same level as the surgical room. But maybe that was for the best to not be able to see much of it.
Everything went well, and I even got to keep the fragments that they took out. Which were a shocking amount. Don’t ask me what I am going to do with them, I just thought they were cool. #horsepeopleproblems
She came home and did really well on stall rest after the surgery which I was a bit shocked by. She did have one crazy moment in the cross ties when they are cleaning her stall and ripped her halter in half so that was great.
We did have to deal with some soft tissue damage from the broken chunks rubbing. I decided to spend my monies and we did shockwave which I have always found to make a big difference and an injection of Amnion that was suggest by my vet. She says that we wouldn’t have seen as much healing as we did if we had not done that. You can’t even see anything going on in that leg and she is sounder then I think she has ever been!
So now we have just been focusing on getting fit again, trying to find a saddle that works for us again and staying in one piece. She is not doing very good at the last thing, and is also being a pain about the second thing!
