You Can’t Stop Your Horse From Rolling, But If He Does This, He Could Injuure Himself Unless You Know What To Do
By Sierra Lynch
Your horse will roll. And in most cases, rolling is no cause for alarm. That is, unless he rolls in his own stall. If he does, he may become cast â€“ a very dangerous position that could result in serious injuryâ€¦unless you know what to do.
“Cast” is the term used to describe a horse that has rolled onto his back and wedged his legs against a hard barrier like a wall or a fence rail. He can’t stand up. He can’t right himself. And if he’s a vigorous roller, he could do significant damage to the joints in his legs. So your knowing how to handle this situation could save your horse a lot of painâ€¦and you a hefty vet bill.
