    I'm so glad you are going back to the Dr. I ignored a broken hallux 25 years ago (stomped on by a young horse), and just kept going. Fast forward to now, and I have huge changes in the joint, a gradually deforming foot, and frequent pain. Completely avoidable.

    Vetwrap is a great standby for people, I use it lots, not so sure about the cold hosing LOL
    I'm not sure if I grew out of stupid or ran out of brave.

    Well, all the doctor did was refer me to a podiatrist. The GOOD news is that I have an appointment tomorrow after work!

    Sigh. So not a fan of the referral delay thing. Glad they got you in quickly though.

    Default Sorry

    Probaby a bit of a negative post but a wonderful friend has to give up horses through really no fault of their own except their back has given out. This is a person that has bred some really lovely horses so sorry about your toe but it will heal. When the doctors tell you your back will only get 30% better than it is ... you won't have horses.

    Best of luck with your toe ... btw the nicest horse she owned actually broke her toe 2.

    Once I got a broken toe from a fall. A very lame fall, I might add. Only started hurting the next week and when I got it x-rayed, they found the fracture. Feet injuries can be weird. On the up side, I've been stepped on a few times, but somehow managed to get away with only a sore foot.
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.

    My horse stepped on my right foot and broke one of the bones, not sure what to call it, that run along the top of the foot and connected basically to the second toe from the outside. I refused a cast, but did use a walking boot and crutches for four weeks. I continued to ride, but without stirrups. Healed no problem but it does ache occasionally.

    UPDATE! OK, here's the scoop, straight from the podiatrist's mouth. First, I have to go for an MRI. However, on x-rays, he saw a healing fracture on the navicular bone (I thought that was pretty funny!), basically the top of your arch. There were also a couple other things calcifying in the same area. He stuck me in a walking cast and I have to wear it ALL the time except to drive or take a shower. I'm hoping the MRI only confirms what he thinks, and doesn't show anything worse to make him cast me! I really felt at home at the podiatrist's office - EVERYONE was limping!

    Glad things seem to at least have a diagnosis now. Jingles for a quick healing with no further complications.

    Timely post! Roxie stepped on me and broke my ring-finger toe on my right foot yesterday. :\
    No displacement but lots of bruising. I'm going stirrup-less for the next 4 weeks at least.
    Get well soon!
    "I is Roxie!" yep.

    Ride on, ride on. All the bad things are gone.

    First off, let me say OUCH! I feel for you. I've been stepped on 3 times and it felt like all my feet bones had been broken. Luckily, I never got injured like that.

    I do have a weird broken toe story. It started when I was still a beginner rider, was on a big bouncy horse and the trainer told me to take the feet off the stirrups and I slid off to one side, in slow motion, trying to hold on by the reins. When I realized I was hanging on the poor horses mouth I let go. I wasn't in any pain so I got back on and carried on. One week later, after my lesson, my foot started to hurt and I realized my big toe was swelling. Went to the dr., he said it was nothing and prescribed me some anti-inflammatory. A few days passed and the swelling didn't go down, so I went to the hospital, got an x-ray and it turns out I had a hairline fracture. Foot fractures are weird...

    Maresy stood on my foot today. Owie. Fortunately I was wearing field boots. Pinkie toe all swollen; don't think it's broken though. Put a cold beer on it when i got home.
