The time of the appointment meant that I could not make it. Mom and my sister loaded him up and headed out. The area was one we are not familiar with. So when I got a text from my Mom saying she killed my trailer I was worried. It turned out that what Mom thought was a four way stop was only a two way stop. When she pulled through the intersection the Mack Truck hit the passenger side of the horse trailer just behind the escape door. Mom said the stabilizer system helped keep the trailer upright.
Since they were only a couple miles from the vet's, the vet came and picked up DaVinci. Our poor boy who stresses at the vet was almost unmanageable. Mom was stuck with the trailer until the tow came. When they made it to see him, the vet said he fractured his eye socket.

Considering the center divider curled around him, I think he did it in the trailer. He was fighting even with sedation. They did manage to xray him and the break is not fixable and there are fragments. They are managing his pain, giving him antibiotics and waiting for an opthemology consult. We had to leave him there tonight, which worries us deeply. Mom stressed to them that he is a worrier. They gave him ulcerguard and a small turn out. Hopefully he will settle tonight and not colic.
Please keep him in your thoughts! I will take a one-eyed DaVinci over losing him. Now I have to deal with the trailer claim and hope I get enough to buy another soon. With two shows and a clinic coming up this month, we are lucky Peggy has a trailer.
