Peggy is right on with the Underwood's. I used it on a horse that went through a fence early this spring and you can't see a mark on her now.

(that's the vet giving her a shot after we shaved and preped her - I started using the Underwoods the day after and it healed fast and complete)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

you know, this probably sound weird but my vet races horses and when we were given a young horse with a horrible injury (she had a flap of skin about 8" cut off!) he recommended a solution of 1 part bleach, 2 parts water and that horse stood like a rock and now you can't even see the mark on her skin unless you look realllllyyyy close! It was amazing! He said it would keep the wound clean and kill all bad bacteria.

And people always gave me a hard time because my private property had barbwire for fencing. I've now seen more problems caused by this preferred fencing than barbwire.

I hope that mare turned out to heal well.

Oh, I'm sorry. If the tendon wasn't cut and there is no infection, then don't stress over tendon death yet. I'm sure that he will heal up just fine. At the risk of sounding cold, that is just all a part of the horse business. Deaths, injuries, lameness, behavioral issues, etc. We all just have to take it one day at a time and do the best we can. Know that my thoughts are with you and Denny (I have a horse of the same name by the 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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Well I spoke with the vet today...
The tendon was cut a quarter of the way through, and the vet forsees months of recouperation before he's back to work.
Yay.

how in the world do you miss that even if you are not paying attention?! Heck, he had to limp or something! I know even if I am not paying to much attention and bring one of my horses in, I know I would see that!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
