Last night I came to the barn to find a huge check-mark shaped gash on my horses inside left back leg kind of above her hock. There was a good inch or two of muscle/fat exposed. On the smaller part of the checkmark shape was a puncture wound that went to her bone. It was about 8 PM and I decided it probably would be better if I had the vets come out now than in the morning.
11 stiches later...
She's on stall rest yet again.
She has only gotten worked 3 times this month! Haha, she's usually worked 6x a week.
Another setback to my money and her training.
I love my horse... I love my horse... I love my horse...
I walked the fence-line and didn't find anything. Anybody have any ideas what it could've been?
We are also looking into insurance for her. Anybody have suggestions for this? I'm new to the whole insuring a horse deal.
