    Glad to hear that she is up and eating, that is a good sign for sure. Can they be next to each other through the fence?

    I just caught up on this.
    I hope that Damsel has a complete recovery.

    @babsbag they are in adjoining stalls, but Zinnia and Damsel are very bonded.

    This is them about an hour before the accident napping:

    Damsel was up today but isn't putting weight on the leg yet. She ate readily and has a healthy appetite. I'm so happy.

    The swelling seems to have really gone down in the last two days, and she's no longer leaking out that yellow fluid that comes from the bone. I'm thinking that the bone has closed itself off, and I'm hoping that when we go back on Friday that was all it was and that it's not actually broken. I gave Zinnia and Damsel some much-needed time together this morning, and that seemed to calm the both of them down. Supervised visits will be what they get until she gets to where she can walk on all four legs. She put her leg down this morning but still isn't offering to put any weight on it at all. I can't blame her though as her leg is still three times its normal size. Today she gets her second round of antibiotics and I'm going to put some SWAT-on there to keep the flies off. We'll see how this goes.

    Her lower limb isn't cold so the circulation is good and that's good news. The bruising is starting to show its ugly head and both sides of her legs are black and blue. Poor baby.

    Oh man... I do feel for her especially since I've been hobbling on a sore foot for awhile now. So glad to hear that she's doing well!

    Poor baby, I can see the swelling in the picture and if that is "gone down" it must have been horrible. Praying it isn't broken. Glad she got to spend time with her friend too, it is good for the moral.

    Glad to see that she's up and moving around. I was wondering how she was doing. Praying for you and her that it's all uphill from here.
