Well, he has a torn Suspensory Ligament. It's torn below his ankle in his pastern. It looks all bowed. Especially after the vet shaved it. He is to stay in his stall for 2 months and then he can have short turn out time by himself. The bet took x-rays and an ultrasound. There aren't any broken bones, just torn ligament. Ozzie was a very good patient. He stood like a gentleman. The Vet was very good too. I called my farrier and he is going to be coming out on Monday when I get back to put a special shoe on Ozzie to help relieve some of the pressure on the heel. It was so nice to have a farrier call me right back after I left him a message and then he called the vet to get the whole scoop. Gotta love good communication.
So, Ozzie is on stall rest and no work at all for at least 6 months. Then it's back to basics for him. I am sure I will get a lot of hand walking done with him.
But I now must leave, I am running late to go and get my sister at the airport! We leave for our cruise tomorrow!!! I'll take lots of pictures!
