St Nicholas Abbey has a setback

The latest news on St Nicholas Abbey is not the best. The following comes straight from Coolmore updates on Twitter this morning ...

 

"A major complication in St Nicholas Abbey’s recovery arose on Monday evening as he appeared a little uncomfortable. Radiographs showed the steel weight-bearing pin in his cannon bone had broken and after consultation, the surgeons decided to take it out. The damaged pin can be clearly seen on the radiograph (below). This procedure was done Monday night, the leg has been re-cast and St Nicholas Abbey is now bearing weight on the fractured leg. This development has come sooner than we would have ideally liked, so the next week is a very tentative period for us. This morning St Nicholas Abbey is comfortable and is walking as well as can be expected. His temperament and demeanour are a tremendous plus both for him and the team treating him."

 

Please join me in wishing the best for this wonderful horse's recovery.

Very good news from Coolmore ... "Surgeons Dr Kelly & Dr O‘Brien are more upbeat on his prognosis however there are many weeks to go before St Nicholas Abbey is out of danger."
My prayers are with Nic and his caretakers and vets. Please pull through!
Sending prayers and positive energy to St Nicholas Abbey and those caring for him. I pray that he is able to recover and those who love him do not have to tell him goodbye for a very long time.
Whatever it takes to safe this Great Horse! By all accounts, He wants to survive! He will be fine if given all the opportunity! Prayers from all his fans will make it happen! Get well soon Champ!
