Yes Serah it is :-( .


We trailered down for her appointment yesterday , he found bone fragments/chips around her

hip joint. Her stifle,hock area is fine. Just that one spot where she took the brunt of her fall.


Vet says not to give up on her, he said complete rest and than to have a follow up done on her,

in 6-8 weeks. Her age is on her side, and she may bounce back 100% or she may have a slight limp.


She will be able to be ridden lightly , no competitive stuff unless it's short of a miracle!


Options/possibilities at this point would be.


Surgery? To remove the chips? Other things to consider is..is it going to be effective?

HQ - They do for the most part have little to no markings at all, or at least what I've seen. I will be interested to see if she shows anything with her summer coat. I am glad I went ahead and had the test done. 


GH - I love the Red Dun's and now I am partial to the Bay Dun too...which is your normal classic dun with the flashy white socks! haha.

Yaay! I am excited!! The Pali, is indeed carrying a copy of the Dun gene!! 


Navaho on the other hand is an LWO carrier..so have to be responsible there! 

Possibly sell her, with the new owner being aware of it! 



Just thought I'd share the test results of the filly!

We almost lost Gunner in summer 2013 due to a joint capsul injury, but found a product that literally saved him from being put down! We are pretty happy with his offspring so far! 2 from last year are being shown this year! I am forever more thrilled over that! 


Animal Genetics just recieved my samples today! 3-5 business days I'll know if one of my mares has LWO or not..and if the Pali filly is a carrier of the Dun gene! 


Tis a beautiful day out there!
