He looks like he has been cut up by getting tangled in the barbed wire fence that he is enclosed in.. there are scars on his right hock and gaskin.. cuts on his chest and side. VERY lucky he did not get his lower legs in that mess... though it is only a matter of time looking at the next to last photo with the 4 strand barbed wire fence next to him. See the cuts on his side and chest and legs? Also in the first post, look at photos 3 and 4.. this guy has been really cut up!

Barbed wire is a bad horse enclosure.

There is also that low feeder that is for cattle that is just an accident waiting to happen for a horse.. all sorts of places for feet and legs to get tangled.

He is really a nice horse. Can you get him out of that situation? Very dangerous.

None of those cuts are from those barbed wire fences. They are from one barbed wire fence that had one layer above it that was an electric piece and he spooked, galloped right up about 100 metres from the arena and bolted through the fences, cutting up his chest. None of his injuries have been from the fencing when hes in his right state of mind. He was terrified had a lunge rope flailing at his side and a massive adrenalin rush. We were all powerless and could just try and catch up to him as he ran through many paddocks fences, jumped one and faceplanted after it. I can get you some worse photos of how his chest was, thhose photos are weeks old from when it actually happened. And the low feeder was a water trough I'm pretty sure? he doesnt live there anymore anyway. And he did get his lower legs tangled in barbed, but he rippped himself free during his adrenalin rush :(

Shame poor chap :( Is he off the track? And did his injury happen when he first came off the track? If so these things happen SO easily, they have no idea. It looks like he has healed up nicely tho!

Im no conformation pro and you need better photos for others to give you a good opinion but IMO he is just gorgeous!

Hey hes not off track but i bought him and wasnt told he was slightly green on some things and so i, being in experienced when it comes to lunging got told he was good to lunge but he pulled it over me, tried to bolt away in a canter and then spooked at the lunge rope and kept going :( it was awful. hes healed so well, when i get him back into work you will see how great the scars are :)

Sometimes the have their own small amount of "crazy" in them regardless of whether they have raced or not! a TB is it's own creature! Accidents happen, he looks nicely healed :) Sure he also learned from the accident!

I only got my OTTB on 21 January this year and he was kicked in his leg a week after I got him and he looked terrible. Not his fault at all but when he was sound he still had a HUGE hematoma on his leg and I would walk him out to help with the swelling and people always HAD to look! He still has a lump! And to make it worse I treated it with purple spray so it REALLY stood out for them to look at as he walked past! He hasnt been kicked since, learned his lesson VERY quick!

Ah, the poor babies. I would just hug them and love them and call them "George"...I am so glad these guys have you to love them.

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

Thankyou and wow thats pretty nasty. I rememebr last week or so when we were moving my horse to a new aggistment and i bought my horse out and he had lost weight, lost all his muscle, had scars all over him and cuts and sores from his old herd. I swear people must have though he was abused or something :/
This is what he went from.

Shame Tayz :( That barbed wire in the picture looks rusty and dangerous. Moral of the story, avoid barbed wire at ALL costs!
