Healing a Horse Bite

Wellllll, Sam must be getting more comfortable with his new digs. Apparently, this afternoon he decided it would be appropriate to stick his head into a mare's stall through the dutch door.

She, it would appear, did not feel the same way.

Anywhoo, Sam has a big round bite mark, about 1/4 the way up his neck from the point of his shoulder. It looks like she took a hunk of skin from a section, but otherwise, it isn't anything to cry medic over. The wound is puffy, bruised I would expect.

What was that about curiosity and a cat? Me thinks his Mum did not part that wisdom. I bet he screamed when she nailed him.

I gave it a good smear of furr-zone. What else should I do? I would hate for this area to scar because it is on the side without his mane and would detract from his pretty neck. Should I be worried about proud flesh or a bump that doesn't go away?

I usually just apply the furr-zone when he gets a hide rub and it heals nicely, no scar or difference once the hair grows back. But this is different, since it has that solid lump.

Thank you for your advice.

Swelling calls for cold hosing to try and reduce it, then if furr - zone works then stick with it
