    Has anyone had a horse break ribs or their pelvis? Can you tell me what happened, what their symptoms were, recovery time, and any pics would be great!! Thanks!

    My 31 year old mare fractured her pelvis 18 years ago. It was raining and she was running down a hill. She slipped and fell fracturing her pelvis. Within an hour, she was sweating profusely and it was obvious that she was in a lot of pain. Called Vet and he did a rectal exam and determined that she fractured her pelvis. She was on stall rest for a year and it healed. We were able to ride her for a few years but as she got older, scar tissue built up and she got weak in her hind end. A few years ago, we had to stop trimming her feet because she cannot stand on 3 legs. However, she is not in pain and is very happy and can still run and buck out in pasture.
