It is slowly healing. I change the dressing everyday, and it seems to be getting better every time. I have him on no riding duty until his leg wound looks all healed up (in case there was other trauma as well) - does that seem like a good decision?

i think keeping him quiet and work free for a few days at least is an excellent idea. I would feel the same-worry worry-
