Case 41
Cannon Area Injury
This is a 4 year old paint with a laceration on the back of his cannon that severed his superficial flexor tendon,
partially severed the deep flexor tendon and severed the lateral digital volar nerve.
He was brought to Step Ahead Farm the day he was injured.
The Kimsey brace is an immediate method of supporting these types of injuries, and was a big factor in this horse
healing as quickly as he did.

This horse was eventually sold to a girl in Louisiana who rides it on abandoned rail road tracks.
