Although it *looks* nasty, it's a pretty clean cut, which will be fairly easy to take care of, and I have no doubt it will heal well if taken care of properly. My friend's mare recently got caught up and it looked a whole world worse than this cut, and it's healed up beautifully, so don't get too disheartened! The secret is to use unpasturized (natural) honey on the cut, it will help speed the process and will lessen the scarring.
Best of luck!!
