PostSubject: Veterans and recovery.   Thu Dec 14, 2006 5:54 pm

Our Bobby, the old ex racehorse, has bashed his leg again! He is always so accident prone and older horses tend to take a lot longer to heal and recover. We have no idea how he has done it this time. But its his front off side leg, he has a big gash and pulled away a lot of skin. Looks worse than it is probably. He was out in the field, but dont know how he has done it. The fencing is checked regular and we cant see anything dodgy out there. So he's on box rest for a bit.
Last time he hurt himself, he kicked thru his stable door! Which he has never done before and thankfully never tried again, so something must have spooked him. It took bout 10months to get him looking perfect again. And now this!
He's mid thirties and every year we go into the winter months and think, 'is he gonna make it thru this year'? Its sad, but it will happen one day. He is soo damn accident prone too! But you cant wrap em up in cotton wool can you?
Sorry for going on a bit. Buts it just gets a bit sad sometimes. Seems like were just going round in circles with im sometimes.
