Help please , my horse went through some fence and his back leg is cut up
I went outside today and noticed my horse Scooter was out and I was like what the heck!? I went and put his halter on him and started checking him out to see if he was hurt and once I got to his back legs , I noticed that his back right one was cut up and bleeding! ( They don't look deep and some of his leg is a little scraped up , like if you were riding a bike and fell ). I strarted to walk him back to the pasture and he was walking ok , didn't give me any problmes . I started looking around wondering what could have happened and I see that he has taken out some of the barb wire fence , prob about 50 feet of so ( or maybe like 3 car lengths , sorry not good at measuring lol) We have a driveway that goes up our barn up a hill and I had seen some blood right there , so figuring that is where he got the barbed wire off , there is some barb wire and like 3 posts right there , where its from there and like up a steep him that this fence is taken down ! I went to town and got some stuff to doctor him up , came back he was out in the field eating . I took him and sprayed some stuff on it and cleaned it really good and than put a wrap on it. He did pretty good for me , I mean he didn't try and kick me or anything. I don't know what could have caused him to go through that fence ! Does any one have any helpful advice or similar stories?! I feel sorry for my poor Scooter!!
*I posted a picture of where this happened , didn't know if it would help or not , and when I go and clean up his leg again I will take pics and post them up on his leg*
