I was wondering how many people have encountered a horse with a head wound so severe, the horse had to be euthenized? Last sunday, I went out to feed the horses at the barn, when I got there, I noticed the horse in the secod paddock was in my paddock with my two horses bleedong from the head profusly. The vet said that horses don't normally bleed this bad from head wounds unless it has punctured through the skull and into the brain. We couldnt sedate her because she kept freaking out (she is very weary of people) she ended going through the fence again and breaking her neck. We had no choice but to put her down. The vet examined her head wound after she was euthenized and stated that their would have been only a 10% chance of her surviving it. I was wondering if anyone has encountered anything simalar and what was done.
(This was not my horse and I still feel horrible for what happened)
Any input would be wonderful.
I still can't figure out what caused the punture wound
