Unhappy Help Help Help Help Please!

I went to the barn this morning, my horse was in her paddock, I took her out, and she had 3 gashes, one the size of my fist on her hip, one the length of my hand on her, and very deep, and another one on her leg, small but a deep puncture. the vet said to wrap the ones on her legs, and clean it everyday, which we will. The cuts look AWFUL. And once they dry out... It's going to look not to great at shows to have huge bald spots. I was wondering if you guys could give me the products you use to grow hair back when your horses have bald spots after cuts.

Please help me out.

Thanks guys!

You said the one cut was very deep and the vet didn't stitch it? I'm confused. I'm not sure about how to get it to grow back. I'm sure someone will have a suggestion. Glad your horse is okay.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

I used underwoods wound stuff and that worked like magic! here is a link to before and after pictures of wounds that were treated with it. ****Warning pictures are graphic*** Testimonials

Edit: I forgot to say that this medicine will not sting when it is applied.

It's going to depend on how much scarring there is after it heals. If there is little scarring, they are usually not noticable once it has healed and the hair around has grown. Unfortunately, if there is a big scar, hair will never grow there.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Holy cats Cowgirlranda, those wounds on that site are horrible, hard to believe that the horses were still alive! Especially that big roping horse, OMG. I cannot believe that poor thing was alive.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

When my horse used to get beaten up by other horses, he'd come in with cuts on him, and I used Destin on him. It's actually a diaper rash ointment, but for some reason, it helped grow the hair back. After some time of applying it to the spot after I rode, the hair grew back in small amounts every day, and you can't even see where the scar was. This was, of course, about a year ago, but I still remembering it working! I'm sure you could find it at any grocery store or any store like Walmart or Target.

Call me old school but the old timers always said to used solid bacon grease on cuts that are scabbed. It has always worked for me. Especially on the face and legs.

I've used Nu-Stock too and I do like it, but prefer the Underwoods
