Abby's Oppsie *Pics*

I went out to see Abby today and I found her in the properties owner chook pen. I'm not sure what the story was because we heard it from his wife but they dropped something on the wire and the picket fell down so Abby got into the other mares paddock and decided to fight. She doesnt have any bite marks or kick marks but lots of long thin marks that almost look like it is from wire.

First mark. As you can see she has lost fur and also the skin is wrippled, is the skin meant to be like that? I havent dealed with this type of thing before.

Second mark. There was a little bleeding but it didnt bother her much.

Third Mark, Two little cuts and hair loss.

There were a couple of more cuts but nothing to bad. Do you think another horse coursed this? or wire?

i would say wire. i doubt another horse could cause cuts like that. unless she was fighting with the other horses and they ran her into the fence? thats happend to me before! could have been that. they arent bad cuts, they will heal fine. yea its normal for the skin to do that, its like a scab i think. My horses tend to get grazes like this quite offen so im not new to them lol! it might take a while for the fur to grow back where she got cut on her side but it wont affect any thing else.

That's definitely wire; horses can not bite or kick in lines like that.

Doesn't look bad though; I've seen a lot worse from wire fencing.

it is either from wire or scrapping into something. It is nothing more then some hide taken off... it may take some time but it should heal.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

It's an older wound and healing very well. The ones on her leg (smaller ones) are wire cuts but the one on her hip very well could be a kick I've seen my horses with marks like that from kicks.

Definitely wire-marks. They look really good to me, and are healing nicely. You know how when you get a cut on yourself and when its almost healed, the skin gets kind of hard and wrinkled looking? I think the same thing is happening here. I wouldn't worry about it. It will heal on its own.

something you could do is put a body cream on is. like an ointment for 3 tree. it will have it heal faster and a lot of wounds like that the hair doesn't grow back. so the cream would possibly help it grow back.

Thanks guys, I guess I was just worrying. If I have time I'm going to go out later and hear the story, hopefully she didnt do it again last night.

I bet it took him alot of work to get her off of the other mare, she never gives up that girl!
