Everything Happens For A Reason.

Hmm... well lets start this off with a saying that is commonly said " things happen for a reason" now whether you believe that or not, doesn't really matter to me because I do, and I just wanted to explain to everyone  what has happened and what it has lead to. I have always thought this way, but my thinking was always that the reason was a good one. It doesn't  matter with all the ugly you have been through because the light is right at the end of the tunnel, and once you get there you realize phew! all those things HAD to happen so I could finally see this, so I can finally realize all this bad was leading to good. You almost appreciate the bad/ugly because if it never happened you would of never known something, you would of ended up worse than it could of been. So let me explain:
If my boy never got his cut on his hoof from the farrier, he would of never got an infection, I would of never found out about a natural foot trimmer who would then take off his shoes, if she would of never took off his shoes, he wouldn't of abscessed easily since he had a pad on , if he never stomped his hoof on the ground, i probably would of never gotten an xray because I would of thought it was just a simple abscess, if  I didn't get that xray, my boy could of been put down lets just say maybe a year from now?
Oh boy, oh boy am I glad all this ugly had happened even though it was tough and I just wanted him to heal. I am so glad I got that xray which told us that indeed he does have an abscess that HAS to drain out asap, and that his bone in his hoof is slightly rotated which could be of the way he was trimmed or his grain. So now he is completely off of his grain and will be getting special shoes once the abscess drains to put his bone back in place. My god, am I thankful, because if this wasn't treated, his bone could of completely rotated and started to protrude from his hoof, which would the lead to put the horse down.
Thankfully, it has only slightly rotated and it can be fixed by putting a shoe on for now. In a couple of months the vet said I can re-try going barefoot but right now he needs them. So once the abscess drains, shoes are put on and he starts walking better (which should be right when he gets the shoes),  I can ride again.
Anyway, thank god for all the ugly in the beginning, it saved my horse! :-)
Have you guys ever experienced something similar? When, you thought all hope was to be lost but at the end you realized that it all lead you to somewhere?

  11. "everything happens for a reason" is kind of a silly statement and doesn't really mean anything.

  14. Glad he's ok now, and good post, but I really have to say this:

    "wouldn't of" is just wrong; it's "wouldn't have". Always.
