This afternoon Cavalina jumped the fence (4ft., oak boards) between paddocks. I didn't see it happen but I also suspect that she got herself a bit hung up on it.
(She's the one grazing... trying to look innocent, I suppose)
She has a cut on her right hind cannon, her stifle on both sides and below her hock on her left hind leg. These are just scrapes more or less, I put AluShield on them for the night and will keep an eye on them.
While I was cleaning her up I noticed that the front of her left cannon is swollen. She was a bit tender when I pressed on it. Do you think it's just swelling from trauma/a hematoma? It looks weird to me... trying to decide whether to call the vet in the moring. I put some Absorbine liniment gel on it and was debating on whether to put a standing wrap on it, but decided against it since she's not even 3 years old yet and would most likely mess with it.
While my brother and I were out putting the boards back up she trotted around a bit and wasn't lame (and I only knew of the cut on her cannon at that time). But by the time I saw her other cuts/swelling it was dark outside.
What do you wise HFers think? (These are just pics from my phone, sorry if they aren't the greatest...) 1.jpg 2.jpg
This one is more from the side - you can't see the swelling as much, but you can see the cut below her hock. 3.jpg
