I just wanted to give an update on my best kept secret that I posted more than a year ago.

On January 31, 2021 I adopted this sweet OTTB that I named Tucker

[GuineaPigCages.com] Little Update on "Best Kept Secret"This picture was before I adopted him

[GuineaPigCages.com] Little Update on "Best Kept Secret"And this is now

It took a lot of trial and error to figure out the best feeding program for him but I finally did. If anyone out there is interested in racing or knows a bit about it yes he did race and earned a little more the 24k in earnings. Its already September and I cant believe its almost been a year since I officially adopted him and yes I firmly believe in adopting horses over buying them much like guinea pigs. We are having our first clinic in October so fingers crossed he behaves.

haha how interesting! you have a very cute friend.
 
Thank You very much
 
@scoottie, how did the October clinic go?
Unfortunately he injured himself before we could go so I had to cancel it I am thinking perhaps a new clinic in the future when I get him in more frequent work.

Here's a little update though
 
Tucker sustained a very serious injury resulting in over 40 stitches

Very graphic pictures

Ouch! What happened?
 
He was playing with another horse over the fence and found an exposed screw
 
Oh wow! I certainly hope that heals fast! No lasting effects?
 
It tore through muscle on both lacerations he will have the stitches for 14 days the vet could stick her whole hand in the one on his chest. After the stitches come out I am going to look into magna wave to help with cell regeneration.
 
If your curious about all they did. I'm not sure if this is going to come through clear or not.

Wow. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, @scoottie.
 
He's on stall rest and he is absolutely hating it. His attitude is coming back to his normal attitude and he is eating his hay with alot more vigor than the last couple of days. He whinnyed to me when he heard my voice when I went to visit him.
 
Went to check on him and found this coming out of him contacted my vet and immediately started him on SMZ. No fever but its in the upper range of normal.

Does anyone want an update its pretty graphic though
 
I will spare everyone the gore pictures but it appears he finally laid down last night my vet had to cut away necrotic tissue that the emergency vet missed when she sutured him up it looks so much. better now
 
Swelling is almost completely gone in his leg
