How can you keep calm when you buy the most beautiful thing you have seen, knowig she is not right but didnt realise it was to the extent of pure heart break. I bought Daisy 18 mths ago with scars all over her but she was just mine as soon as she saw me and i saw her. Any way after 3mths of having her she came very lame and was told by my farrier and vet she had bruised sole and had to go on box rest. The box rest lasted 10 1/2 mths still finding her to be very lame. I demanded with a new vet she had xrays to my amazement she had a rotated pedal bone, 3 years old he put it. How can anybody sell a horse knowing that and not treat it.(then again how did my first vet and farrier not see it) She started treatment 20 weeks ago and has been in Just over 20 weeks, she decided just over a week ago that she had had enough and booted the stable causing further scars to her back legs. This has since got infected with the vet demanding she went stright to his hospital to ensure it had not gone in her joint (a hoc injury).
They ultra sounded and xrayed her eventually gave the all clear, they then decided seen as she was there to do a further xray on her front left (rotated pedal bone) to see how it was doing.
To my shock and the vets it has rotated further, the vets words were how she can stand on it is hard to understand but how she is still walking on it is even harder. He also could not understand that she was still comfortable with it.
She has now come home but they have given me ACP to sedate her and see how she is in a week, if all is ok he wants the farrier to come and take more toe off her with the heart bar shoe.
This is worrying me more nad more cos i dont want to loose her but i dont want her in pain.
Does anyone have any miracle cases they have heard or any advise.
The last thing the vet said was cos she is resting the leg it is pulling on her tendon that is causing the pedal bone to rotate further.
Please please please give any advise you may think can help.
