    I'd have been really unimpressed with that vet if that happened with one of my horses! (To put it nicely) That's good to know. As long as he doesn't get worse and is still getting around ok I'm sure his owner will give him plenty of time before making any big decisions.

    Nerve damage takes a very long time to heal. My leg where they did surgery for bypass has it right now and it's no fun. It's numb and feels swollen constantly and hurts like it's burning all the time. It's been months. Hang in there. It's very unlikely that it's an irreversible situation.

    Jingles for the little guy!
    Ghost fractured her coffin bone at 2 months old and recovered fully, and is now showing in futurities, and if it' a nerve issue it'll take a long time to heal

    Hoping the little one gets well quick! Nerves regenerate about 1 mm per day. Is the foal able to go home any time soon?

    How is she doing in the futurities?

    @endurgirl we have had some minor set backs - she decided to have a huge attitude and threw a fit during her first small show, and then my trainer was flipped over on top of (Not by ghost) so the second show they didn' attend. She will be showing first weekend of August and August 17-19. She is really neat!

    The little guy has already recovered some use of his right side! Much sooner progress than we expected. He is getting around a little better.
