Honey huh? I may have to try that one sometime... I am all for 'natural' healing stuff

Ok so the vet cam gave him some shots.. anti inflamitory and antibiotics and gave us more to give him. He now has to live in our backyard.. O.o the mini I never had rofl. We are not to wrap it because he reckons it will increase the chance of proud flesh and it is mostly superficial. He has to live in the backyard because the holding pen we have is to dusty and the paddock is too big. Dad will not be happy lol. Anyway here are some pics..

It doesn't look so bad now that its cleaned. I hope he's feeling better soon.

Really though, honey is amazing. One of my horses once had this cut under his eye, like barely a cm of, and we put honey on it (and a fly veil) and there was barely a scar. It was like a huge cut. Amazing stuff. We used to get Manuka Honey which was apparently the best for healing, but I don't think you would have that overseas.

Ouch, I hope he feels better soon. I'd be leery of leaving him in the backyard, especially if he can get near your house windows. I've seen horses push their heads through windows, breaking the glass and getting pretty bad cuts. Look for things in the yard he could get hurt on, and remove them.

The honey tip is a good one!
