Early October, Fortune bore the unfortunate nickname of Miss Fortune after breaking her leg and knee
We had hoped her time with the splint would be just a few weeks. But because of the joint involvement and an unfortunate event where she wedged her splint in the fence, she ended up wearing the splint for 8 weeks, with four splint changes during the time.
After removing her splint three weeks ago, she needed to stay confined in a stall (with her buddy, Twill) for a few weeks to regain some muscle strength. And to keep her from going teen age crazy too soon!
Last week, she was finally allowed out in the “big world” in a relatively flat area. While her leg is not straight
and is likely to always be crooked, she seems to be getting around pretty well!
She’s gone from Miss Fortune to Fortune-ate.
