Yella is a Carolina, US Dingo. I live on a farm and my dogs live free. Dog door in the house. Opening to over 60 acres of freedom. I got horse. The horses and dogs use each other as toys. I have 3 dogs, 2 pigs and only 5 horses left. Used to be over 40. Yella got to frisky with one of the horses and got kicked. Dumb ars was not fast enough. Left front , clean brake, just over the wrist, no dislocation to worry about. So, with any animal that is a rather great challenge, they have to be kept very confined, the less they move the better. I have a lot of experience with horses. Upper level 3 day eventer, injuries are part of the games. Some can take a year, till healed. But with a dog and a broken leg there is one minor complication. Movement. The cast will start rubbing and create soreness, infections and so on. Especially if, like Yella, there is already a abrasion, from the kick. Nothing serious hair gone and a minor cut in the skin. Any infection under the cast will cost him his leg, or if not caught in time his live. We started out with a splint, for 3 days to get the swelling down. I had thought that the 5 feet fence around my garden was good enough to keep him in. Wrong, he jumped the 5 feet, with a broken leg and a splint all the way up to his elbow. No damage done. Friday he got a cast and now the fight for his leg begins. I built a 8 feet fence around the dogy door he and his buddies have around 50 sqf to go outside, by them self. Now comes the interesting part. Dogs have their crap places, if they are free to roam. They are not close to their home. I take Yella out every day, into the fenced garden, while I do things in the garden. But it is not his crap place. He goes with me do grasse the pigs, but he can not get to his crap place. Natural living animals are different. He did not crap for 4 days. Till last night. Dogy door is closed at night. Than he went caboom, 4 days of crap Nice surprise for breakfast, best dealt with a coffee, after breakfast. Naturally he is absolutely confused and has no idea what has happened to him. Will be a very interesting challenge. But that leg will have to stay on. 4 weeks to go for him.
