Good News!

I am a happy horse mom today!  Riva was poked, prodded, trotted up and down the lane, and finally ultrasounded this morning by our vet.  The verdict - no tendon damage showed on the ultrsound and vet said she is sound today.

After listening to what we have went thru since Sunday - the stall rest, cold hosing, wrapping, and Bute - she believes Riva most likely whacked her front leg with her back hoof either when ridden last Saturday or during turn out.  The swelling on her leg is gone, no heat, moving like normal.

The vet said to start with light turn out and light riding - ease her back into work.  I can handle that plan.  So relived that the tendons are not damaged. 

 
 Thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Only horse people get it!

So glad the diva is alright. I missed your earlier posts and just saw all of them today and know how it feels when they are off. Hope that she makes a speedy recovery back into full work!
