Wow, that's horrible. Sending good and healing thoughts his way.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

updated pics...

The vet was out yesterday and was very impressed with the progress his healing has made. She didnt need to trim anything this time and said she would be back out in 2 weeks.

She examined the flap of skin on the lower side and said it was not forming a pocket. She didnt want to trim the flap yet to since it was healthy tissue and wanted to wait to see how it grows in a few weeks. The rest of the stitches were removed as well. The outer side of the flap adhered.

10 days into using Vetericyn spray by the way. :)

Ouch! That looks bad! But it seems to be a 'healthy' wound. Fingers crossed the healing keeps improving this way!
I will keep an eye on this thread and watch the progress...

Boy, I really know what you are going through! The first days are the hardest, when it is almost too scary to see where the wound is going - good, bad, really bad -, and then you settle into a routine and do whatever you have to do to get the horse well.

My horse is recovering nicely from what is called a catastrophic leg injury (see Phoenix had an accident), infact we are going to go for our first little ride since her accident next week. It is amazing what horses can recover from, it looks like your little guy is doing well and I hope to goodness all tendons and ligaments heal properly and this is just a little hitch on the path of a happy horse life. Keep up the good work, wishing you all the best.

It's looking alot better imo! Best wishes with him...he's young, so that to me, is a huge advantage here.
