X-ray results

We were looking for a fracture of the pedal bone and we might have found one, sort of. It looked on the x-ray more like a dent in the side of the bone rather than a crack. The vet described it as being more of a crumble than a crack as far as he could tell, but is sending the shots off to Newmarket for a second opinion. In general he and the farrier seemed optimistic. We’ll be treating it with an egg-bar shoe, bute and box rest.
