Oh I was so hoping for better news this morning MA! I didn't see you on MSN so I figured you were with Racer. Poor Racer! Can you give him something for the pain maybe? I didn't approve of pain killers until after the recent C-section with Dan. They made all the difference in the world in getting through the first week after the operation. I wonder if maybe they can help Racer through this crisis?

Oh hissy, I am so sorry. I wish my father was still alive. He was an expert on horses, especially the legs and hooves. One thing I know is that a horse shouldn't have very much corn in their diet, as that can cause foundering. I just wish I could ask my Dad what to do in a situation like this. He would know the best way to take care of it. He made many a lame horse walk again. They even consulted my father for the horses in the movies.

I am still praying for Racer. Mostly I pray for his pain to go away.

MA,

I'm sorry to hear today is not starting out well for Racer...I hope things improve as the day goes by, that there is an answer for you in all the advice you are being sent. Please try to get a nap in, exhaustion won't help either of you

Keeping Racer in my prayers, and knowing that you will get the guidance from God that you've asked for and the strength you need,

Hang in there M.A. ((((((HUGS))))))

I don't know what all you want to hear? I would love to say that he has reached his stability point and he is finally comfortable, but he has gone downhill. The vet was out this morning and was not encouraged either. He says that from all the symptoms Race shows, the inability to want to move, the cowed (bowed) front legs, that Race is probably going to make a liar out of him and be one of those rare horses that don't read the manual. In other words, the vet now thinks there has been rotation on the coffin bone, which if I am understanding this right, in the first instance of founder, this rarely happens. I am to stop feeding him anything but junk hay, his pain killer has been kicked up a notch, he got a pain shot and I am to stop feeding him this special mix called strategy even though I don't feed him but 2 cups of this a day so he can get his meds. x-rays were taken and the vet said he will call. I am to spend creek time with him 35 minutes 3 times a day- and I was given a list of things to watch out for that would mean he is getting even worse instead of better which I can only pray does not happen.

My farrier is on his way out and will stop by today on his way home to talk to me.There is little he can do at this point until Racer stablizes, because touching his legs and feet just results in a lot of pain for him. I wish I had better news- but I don't.

I'm so very sorry Maryanne! Still sending lots of prayers & good thoughts to you & to Racer!
post #53 of 176
Speaking for me, I just wanted to hear how you & Racer were, even if not the best of news.

I wish there was something I could do to help, but since there isn't, just know there are prayers being said for strength for both of you, and healing.

I just heard- there is no rotation! This is good news, though the vet cautioned me there still could be some. But for right now, the bone is still intact!
