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.
