    My horse jumped on mine and it swelled up red for a few days, a year or so on and that toe doesnt bend any more

    I wouldnt worry about it even if it is broken, toes arent the most important thing and i dont have any issues with a permanently broken toe, just keep applying cold stuff i would imagine, like packs of peas.
