not so good news

So the other day the vet came out to see sparkles due to her foot. Just to put a long story short she has Ringbone.

Ringbone, a lameness disease of the pastern and coffin joints, is a degenerative disorder that has no cure. Fortunately, with treatment and good management, disease progression can be slowed, allowing the horse to remain competitive.
