    Buzzs leg

    I did have another post but it sort of died when I tried posting in it again.
    So I will start another one with the whole story and pleas read if you are going to post :)

    Last year Buzz had a sugery on his leg to cut off a really big sacroid he had on his leg.
    Me I had never dealt with *sick* horses before that includes bandaging the works. The vet was like I will come once a week to change it over and it will be off withen 3 months.
    She didn't come everyweek I would ring up and she would be like oh it will be fine.
    Buzz had started to get a limp I rang the vet up to find she had gone on a holiday! I spoke to another vet there but because he didnt know what she had done and everything it was kinda confusing he asked how bad it was well, me being not that experianced with things like this said I don't think it was that bad.
    Big mistake he came out the next day and it must of gotten a lot worse over night.
    His leg was like the size of a watermelon. :(
    I was shocked, he could barely walk, but he did he was brave.
    The vet cut off the bandage and it had rubbed down to the tendon.
    It was that bad.
    After like 6 months the bandage came off and I could ride again slowly.
    But now where it rubbed and healed there is a big scab.

    It has started going flacky, I had for a while been puting spray on it one the vet gave me, but it wasn't doing much after about 2 months so I stopped.
    It has been nearly 6months now and still no hair growth. It is flackey.
    Here are some pictures of it

    Sorry there big
    And sorry for the long story. I just wanted everyone to know how it was from the start and how it got to be so bad.
    And how bad I felt.

    I've never experienced this before, but my guy has had scratches and all sorts of stuff same with my moms. It may be totally possible the hair will never grow back or it will take a long time. My boy has a scratch on his face that is over six months old no hair yet... but my moms horse kicked him last year and his hair is fine, just turned white. Maybe try keeping it moist, like with corona, or a triple anitibiotic. I dunno I could be totally wrong. I personally wouldn't worry too much about the hair, just that she isn't tender or anything in that area.
