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!
