Anyways I hosed it for a few minutes then poured a little bit of peroxide on it since that's what I had in the tack room, and finished by putting triple antibiotic ointment on it. Is what I did alright? It wasn't bad just like a little slice but the location worries me about infection.
I washed it and then put ointment on it and put a boot on that covered it so it stayed clean and flies couldn't have a party. Was healed up and fine in a week....he just has a bit of flaky skin there now and a little less hair but it is already on the way to growing back.
