Comanche's wound (graphic pics beware)

Just wanted to post this log of pictures to show the progress of the healing.
We have been using Vetericyn and SSO cream.

Day 1 - 11/10/10 This photo was taken after the wound was cleaned up and the extender tendon was reattached.

Day 5 11/15/10 - We started using Vetericyn spray this day.
Everything had begun to fall apart at this point. It was nasty.

11/17/10 - The vet had been out the evening before this was taken to trim off some of the dead skin. Day 4 of using the Vetericyn spray.

11/19/10 - still healing...

11/21/10 - 8 days of using Vetericyn. Everything is starting to look new and fresh. The vet comes back out tomorrow afternoon so I guess she will be trimming away some more of that "flap"

He got his leg stuck between the wall and the feeder.
It was only a three inch space so how he got his little leg back there is beyond me. But when he pulled it out, he pulled the feeder off the wall and cut himself wide open in the process.

It took 3 hours of surgery to stitch him back together - as he severed tendons and whatnot.

He is currently 7 months old and so we were worried that he wouldnt be able to use the leg anymore since there was a lot of damage in there. He only missed a major vein by centimeters! But he is healing well and starting to use the leg already.

That is deep! I would be most worried about the tendons healing properly. I wouldnt be suprised if he ends up stiff in that leg =/ poor fella

Tendon injuries are pretty scary. The leg looks like it will probably not be too ugly once it heals (as far as scarring go's). Don't be surprised if it takes longer to heal then expected. Beauty took a full year before she finally stopped getting better. She severed both tendons so her prognosis was very poor. She came through with flying colors and only a small mechanical lameness. Good luck to you and the boy!

Thank you for all the healing wishes for him. He sure can use it.
Although tonight he was acting like there was nothing wrong with him. He was rearing up playfully and trotting around.

Wow, that's a nasty cut. He is young, he will probably heal pretty well.
