I can't see the pics at work but its amazing.

You have to toddler proof everything for horses.

I remember two incidents at my old yard when I worked as a groom.

I was coming down for my shift and heard screaming, pelted to the other end of the yard and one of the school horses had kicked out at the other groom.. the screamer... and we had metal gates with 5 horizontal bars. She had one hind leg stuck through the first section and the other two down. I have never seen anything quite like it. But she was still trying to get at the ponies who had come to investigate.

Vet was called, sedated and the fire service had to cut her free. She basically skinned her legs, but was fine after 8 months of therapy for her legs.

Another was a haffy cross who ploughed through the fencing.. grass was greener on the other side.

Huge splinter of wood sticking out of her head and a nice lovely flap of skin. They say head injuries bleed a lot but I've never quite seen anything like it!

Jingles for your little 'un!!!

WOW, that's a prize injury all right. Poor baby, sending quick healing thoughts. Sometimes they amaze us with the way they pull through this stuff.

What's that old saying, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right?!

He certainly did it up right didn't he! Fingers crossed that your boy heals well and fast. Also, sending you much bubble wrap, not that it will help, as we all know!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your horse. My first gut reaction was "gasp, that's a crazy cut" but honestly, that one will heal up nicely with the right care. I'm currently trying to heal a nasty horizontal barb wire laceration just above my barrel mare's heal bulbs on her front hoof and it's going to take months and then I still hope she'll come out of this sound. I would almost want to trade you injuries. :( I look forward to seeing your guy progress. Good job getting the right attention to him so quickly.

This right here is why I hate it that some of the pictures had to be censored out. Anyone who didn't see the initial photos will now only think that it was a simple cut that looks a whole lot worse than what it was. I, like Foxhunter, believe that they should have been left because, while they are very gory, it is a perfect illustration of what can happen.

Katja, it was so much more than just a cut. Pretty much everything above the open wound is nothing more than a detached flap of skin/muscle several inches wide with everything torn up underneath it...including a broken floating rib that had to be removed. I'm sure that the poor boy will heal up nicely, but the injury was a lot worse than what the remaining pictures make it look like.

Foxhunter, any news on how the poor fella is faring? Hopefully no real issues have come up and he's on the road to recovery.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Is there any way you can upload photos directly to the site, or email them to me so I can post them? Curious to see the extent of the injury.

Aha!!! Duh, I thought it was the forum that censored it, but apparently it was photobucket. Looks like there are a couple that are still present though (forgive me, foxhunter, for being so stalker-ish and finding your photobucket account).
