    I hate to even mention this possibility, but maybe someone shot her. Did the vet xray or autopsy her at all? Did he find anything in the wound?

    Luckily, head wounds that severe don't occur real often.

    Poor mare. I'm so sorry for you and her owner.

    Hoover, that is what I was thinking. When I was at the vet with my mare, a lady who used to work there (whom id chat with about horses, of course) had her stud in there with an almost perfect wound in his shoulder, right at the point. His shoulder bone was also chipped. He lives in a pipe corral, so she thinks her neighbor shot him trying to get her dog, and wont fess up because he doesn't want the vet bill. I would post a couple cams out where you can see something if you can't find anything around the fences.

    Also, when I was at my first barn in CA, my friend and I turned 4 arabians together out every day in a half wood, half pipe arena, and one of the arabian mares that wasn't broke yet, somehow ended up with a short screw in her head right in the hollow above the eye. It had to be removed via surgery.

    The woun d is too jagged. I bullet would have left a perfect hole in her head. I have narrowed it down though. I was looking at her gate and the post has been knocked loose of the concrete and the gate in bottomed out on the other side. The handle that is used to open the gate sticks up about 6inches. The problem with that sinario is that their just isnt enough blood and disturbed dirt for her to have come down on that handle. I do know that she injured herself in her paddock and not mine. Thier is blood on her side of fence accross the paddock. She might have layed or fallen down after the accident adn then when she tried to get up, she was under the fence. That is how I think she got into my paddock. But I still can't explain the head wound. She is too skiddish to have let someone come up to her and do that. It really bothers me though.

    Wow, Im glad you're narrowing it down. Whew, that is unbelievable! I hope the owner is doing ok, but if the horse was skittish he/she probably wasn't too bonded hopefully. That's really sad for any horse, especially when they are young and have their full life ahead of them.

    Thanks, the owner is real jack a**. I don't feel sorry for him one bit. Honestly, I considered her mine. Never once didhe come down to the barn just to say to her. He just comes down and changes the sprinklers.
