Re: [RC] Suspensory injury...a more thorough evaluation - Chris Paus

Oh Cynthia, I'm so sorry. This is the part of horse ownership that sucks.. when our equine friends are injured, or sick or worse. but dont' lose heart and don't give up horses because this one has a problem.
Like my mom says, "don't go borrowing trouble." meaning don't worry about things yet. He may heal up great and you may still have many years of good riding. Or he may  not. Either way, stressing about it won't change what's going to happen.
I think it's great that you still want to volunteer at rides. You also might do some "catch riding," for people like me who have more than one horse they'd like to keep in competition. If you were closer to Kansas I'd have a steady mount for you at rides.
Keep the faith.....
