Do you read before you post? IF not you should; as you will notice that the owner called several vets, and wound up staying in contact with one through out the entire healing process; obviously the owner was well informed on how to treat the horse, and the horse is doing fine, now. Don't post, just to boost your own ego, regarding horse care, because one day you may find yourself hours away from the nearest clinic, and may have to do the same thing, else your horse die!

Thanks, That clears it up...I don't mean to argue with anyone; it's just that this poor owner is getting torn up by other posters, and it's just not right, given anyone of us could find ourselves in that kind of situation at some point in time...

I am not angry toward any poster....I don't feel I have been insulted. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Anyways, Thank you all for your opinions, its always good to get a different point of view. I just got back from the barn, feeding my knothead horse....lol

Crimsonhorse01: I live 40 miles south of Jamestown.

Halfpass: You are correct that I live in a very rural area the local horse knowledgable vet is 50-60 miles away and I called them when it happened and they explained that they didn't feel comfortable taking on a case like this one.

I used to work at a horse camp, and a horse there was horribly injured from kicking a hole in her stall, getting her leg caught in it and freaking out. She was shredded to the bone and everyone said to put her down, but I called someone I kno who has a horse rescue and she took the mare, took care of her leg with no vet help, (everyone though this horse would never walk again) and llitterally 4 months the mare was walking around undersaddle. That made me think vet care isnt totally essential, and if you can't afford it, you just do the best you can

I think that it has healed up pretty nice. I prefer electric fencing, but we have quite a bit of barbwire where I live now and are slowly refencing in electric. In my entire Life I have seen two horses really hurt by barbwire. We try to put horses with others about the same siza and temperament as those they are with, and we have only ended up with a couple of stud colts getting some cuts ans scrapes...none of it was serious at all. Within a day it was all scabbed.

I have to agree that a gun is much nicer than the injection. Especially if a lot of blood has been lost or the heart is not pumping well they scream and trash. The same thing happens in dogs. It's really sad. I worked at a vet's office and saw it happen with both horses and dogs.

Anyways...Great job at getting her healed up. I'm amazed that you were able to do all of that. I don't knwo that I could have done it.

Adapt and overcome. Do what you can with the resources at hand. Bloody marvellous job.

Hope she continues to recover well!
