We have a problem on the ranch!! 7-Up our 8 yo Shetland pony, has broken his leg. I think one of the big horses kicked him.... We had the vet out today, and it is definately broken. I know he's not worth anything monetarily, but he is worth trying to save for the kids. Especially, for Squeak.
Has ANYONE ever had a horse with a broken leg?? We are thinking of setting it and trying to heal it. It is only a 2% chance, but I think we should chance it. He isn't in any major pain, and he is easy going enough to handle tons of time in a small pen.
I would really appreciate ANY and ALL imput and help in this matter. Any supplements, you have used to improve bone, or anything else!!
THANK YOU from me and the kids!!!!
(Even, my usually not attached cowboy of a husband is interested in trying to save him)
