    Poor Bear! That doesn't look fun :( But it looks like you are taking very good care of it.

    Sending him healing vibes!

    Thanks ED. I will make sure and tell him that everyone feels very sorry for him. ;)

    I did get some videos of him walking today, quite sad to watch. ):

    Wow, I expected much worse by the title! But he should bounce back quite quickly, as it doesn't appear to be into the muscle really...Poor guy!!!

    LOL!! Yeah... I don't handle horse injuries well (better then most of my friends, and I take better care of the wounds at that), reminds me of the slaughter house.

    Poor guy, at least it's not too bad, just in a sensitive area. Probably won't even scar ;)

    Just to let you know,,,,, I would never give anyone crap about a horse getting an injury because of something that is preventable. Um horses find the greatest things to get hurt on no matter what!! You can make your pastures and paddocks bubblewrapped and they would still end up with an injury. I hope he gets better soon. Do you have anything for proud flesh?? Just a question in case it gets to that point. My vet gave me some Cothivet to spray on an injury and it really healed quickly without any proud flesh. Just a suggestion. Good luck

    Too right A horse can be in a paddock that is dead flat, perfect fencing, not a rock or tree in sight, and go and break its leg. And you can have a horse in a literal junk yard, with fences hanging on the ground, not hurt itself once. You can't wrap them in bubble wrap and keep them totally immobile.

    Aww I hope he heals quickly.

    When I clean wounds with iodine I dilute it so it looks like strong tea.

    I was expecting alot worse. I would have used blood stop powder after it was cleaned. My guess is he needs a tetnus shot and antibiotics.

    To dilute the iodine make the water a very light rust color, like murky water that you can still see through if you. That what we use in my vet office with clients if you don't us nolvasan, which normally we never use iodine, nolvasan will do the trick just the same
