Hey Everyone! i know its been a while since i have been on here and wrote yall but i have been really busy working with my horses! well i will tell you all what happened with beauty if you dont know but she cut her leg on some barb wire and knicked the ligament in her right back leg... she could barely walk on it for about 4 months and she could finally walk with no problems but her she limped when she trotted...and after 2 months later she could finally trot without limping and i lunged her around for about 15 minutes everyday and she seems to be getting alot better...i have even started light riding her and she seems really happy about that and she will trot on her own with out me asking her and she has a very even trot now...and the swelling in her leg has went down alot...but her leg looks bigger then normal but there is no heat in it...all the legs temperature feel the same and she seems happier...but i was wondering could that just be scar tissue in there that will always be there??

Melanie, I dont know about the scar tissue. Last year my mare had a horrible injury to her back cannon with a fence and after 6 months she recovered fully. Well less than a month ago she has now done exactly what your mare did, although it was to the front right. I am encouraged about your mares progress. It gives me hope that my mare will recover. Sadly my mare was in foal about 5-6 weeks so we are hoping for the best. I sure hope it doesnt cause her to abort!
I hope someone here can answer your question.

scar tissue is usually very thick and not uniformed if her leg is uniformly bigger than the rest id say continue the LIGHT workouts and continue the cold hosing on it. You may also try gentle stretching and massage helps the blood flow.

Melaine
My mare injured her hind leg right on the the hock joint a few months ago- also from a fence. She has scar tissue there it looks like its swollen but she's running around just fine. Unless your mare is a show horse I doubt if it will effect her in any way.

Jenni, I replied to the email you sent me about the wild horses, but my email account has been playing up, it says the email was sent, but did it reach you?
