Colt and Cut Shoulder, Filly and Cut by the hoof

So, a week ago, My Colt Cut Him self on A Peice of metel or something. it Ripped the Out Skin so You can Kinda see the Muscul... it looks like its scabing over but also looks Yellowy. Now We have some Green Stuff from the Vet From the other horse when He got a Prod Growth. Would it be ok to put this on it And Rap it Yup like the other horse Or should we Leave it or Call a vet or wait till it gets a bit worst?

Now The Filly Got Cut also on Metal, Ut Sacbed over but it Breaks a Few times. What Should we do? two More Question, When does Foals Normally Teeth? and when do they eat Grass?

I hope this is a joke post.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

Please don't take this the wrong way but it sounds like you have very little experience with horses. I would suggest getting the vet out to both horses straight away, they both should have tetanus shots immediately if they are older than six months of age.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

How is it that your family came to be in the breeding business when it seems that you are relatively new to the keeping of horses?

Ok really hard to understand what exactly you talking about! Firstly if its yellowy thats infection your horses need the vet for antibiotics.
Secondly remove the metal from your field it should not have been there in the first place and for 2horses to get injured in the same thing is just bad!
Make sure all vaccinations are up to date you horses both need there anti-tet injections.
CLean the cuts every day with a saline solution untill the vet comes and tells you what to do. id also look at maybe finding someone with more experience to help with the genereal upkeep of your horses as you dont seem very knowledable and shouldnt be the sole carer of these horses.

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable

Please make sure your family looks around to make sure all the metal pieces are picked up any where that the horses have access to them. Horses have a great ability to injure themselves so we have to do our best to make sure there is nothing available for them to get into to hurt themselves.

Hope things heal well.

ok, So First of all. This all Healing up Greatly, The Cream is did its Job. Next, We Rent here and Normally There was Cows here, then Four horses then ours so yeah, But they're in a Different Field now. Ok, How we got into it was we found a Wonderful Horse that was That "One Nut wouldn't Drop", So we Call the Vets and they say he has a Low chance on Breeding. So We Bought it and we we're going to get him Cut. Then we brought him to Find out that one of the Mares were in "season". we kinda Seperated him and He Jumped a Fence. And We Don't belive in Abortion for animals. Also, I'm not The Expert, but my Dad Read quite alot about horses before. I Posted this Cause I wanted to Know what you would do. There is horse people all over around here!

Ok first off.

If your stallion is a one nut wonder, its going to cost upwards of a thousand dollars or more to geld him. They have to do open abdominal surgery to find the missing nut. Many times the average vet won't touch it, they send them to a specialist.

Second, it is genetic- meaning that this trait is passed on to the foals. So you stand a good chance of having a one ball Reilly born if its a colt.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.
