I had posted about getting kicked but I hadn't mentioned the bruise that showed up on my hand following the incident. I thought nothing of it because it was just a bruise. My hand must have gotten in the way at some point of Savvy's hoof connecting with my face, but it was fine.
Well, that is up until the lesson I was so proud of attending later that week. After riding that day, the bruise reappeared and so the next day I had a visit with my doctor, an x-ray and the diagnosis of two broken bones in my hand.
You would think that would be enough for me to cancel my show plans, but no, I still felt up to it with my hand brace on so was intent on going.
Savvy seriously had other plans. Yesterday, dear Savvy presented with hind leg held high, hobbling around in pain acting like she thought this might be the end for her.
I believed her until the vet showed up and found not broken bones, but a brewing abscess in her right hind foot.
|Standing on offending foot the next morning, clearly not dying.|
The same foot she had kicked me with.
Karma much my little wonder pony?
Needless to say, the schooling show is officially a no-go.
