    Good thinking GoldRush! It's amazing what horses can hurt themselves on. We are getting the bolt sawn off, hopefully. The people that make the fencing these days, they don't bother trimming the hinge bolt end off anymore. We are getting hold of an electric metal cutter thingie so we can take it off. The fence next to the ring feeder has one string of barbed wire about half way down [its the only barbed wire fence in the field] so we covered it with hose piping and he still finds a way to injure himself! Typical pony.

    I'll keep you all updated if there are any changes. Fingers crossed he'll keep healing the way he is.

    Gosh its AMAZING how he went from that big gaping wound to that smaller almost healed one!

    Thanks for posting this, it once more reminded me that when I have a horse, I better have some spare change (Change as in a couple of thousands) for bad days like this! :)

    Hope your boy is fine! <3

    Well, vet came last Thursday and Dougal was announced compeltely sound and able to be ridden again! Woo!
    He's been getting on really well and have just been easing him back into work. He's been a star!

    This was his wound on Friday.

    Look how much it has shrunk!
