 should wait this out for a while and see what develops or if in a few days 
 we know that there is more damage then we can see, have him put down.  Stall 
 rest is not a possiblity....they tried that at the vets and he has a bloody

Big trouble. I'd give him as much veterinarian attention as you can afford, 
starting with some regular rations of Ace. This is a time when you let the 
best medical people you can find do their work.
