Warm Coronet Band?
Posted 06 November 2008 - 02:37 PM
I palpated and he was tender to the touch almost anywhere I touched. And dead lame.
I cold hosed for 20min brought him back into the cross ties. I called my trainer to see what to do, and about 30min later the heat moved down to the coronet area. And a little warm to the touch near the annular ligament area. Trainer had me ice tight from the knee down and serane wrap and vet wrap the leg like a polo. We did that mon and tues night, re doing the cold hosing and wrap everyday.
On Wends there was no swelling, but still heat in the coronet band but not in the annular ligament area, he was a little lame but not much, so we did the cold hosing the bandage for one more night.
My trainer took him to the vet this morning, did x-rays and ultra sound and nothing is wrong....
He is only slightly lame on the concret and no heat or swelling..
So who knows what he did!
I have a horse show this sat, and the vets said if hes not lame there should be no reason for him not to go.
I just dont know if i should still go on with the show and try riding him on fri.
He was clean but i dont know if im going to make it "reappear" if i try and ride him at all.
Any help? Comments or anything?

If you feel roo uncomfortable about showing him you might as well play it safe and stay home. I know that if I were worrying about not reinjuring my horse I wouldn't be showing to my or the horse's full potential. Up to you.
Give them what they want until they don't want it any more.....

So who knows if he comes up lame tomorrow or if afterwards he is stocked up im not going to show him, I show in the level 1s, and it would be near impossible to be going the speed we usally go with his tight turns with out blowing something out. So ill keep you guys updated!
