Well, apparently Iím cursed to own accident-prone horses.
I went for a walk with my cousin and her gelding yesterday... we were gone for only about half an hour... when we got back, I got Jaxxon out and brought him to the front yard to graze and lo and behold, heíd managed to injure himself!
Iím still not sure just what he did it on, as I cleaned out the area heís fenced in really well before I brought him home last Wednesday. But yes, he has managed to slice his chest open about an inch/two inches... Itís not real bad, but itís bad enough for me.
Iím hosing it out twice a day and putting Fura-Septin on it. Itís slightly swollen and has a little heat around it, but not real bad... It actually looks a lot better today than it did yesterday, and it doesnít seem to be bothering Jaxxon in the slightest. My mum called last night and I told her that I had another accident-prone horse... she just said ďOh no! We canít afford any more vet bills!Ē
After hosing it out, before I put the medicine on it.
After I put the medicine on it.
