I swear my horses enjoy freaking me out.
something wrong with this picture yeah?
yep, not pretty
It appears that poor Rexy has copped a hoof from another horse. Right in the knee. It's not so much fun being the bottom of the pecking order. Luckily it appears to only be a little cut. The swelling seems to be from the impact, there's no heat in it, but it is definitely sore to the touch. He's favouring that leg a little, but not excessively. I cleaned it up as best I could (I didn't have any warm water so I had to use cold, sorry Rexy!), and put some betadine on it. Will take out some warm water tomorrow and clean it up properly and keep an eye on it from there. This was as clean as I could get it today
