It is truly amazing. Definitely some catastrophic injuries posted. This filly was in a dispersal sale, unbroke, not really handled much, and a BRONC. She is out of a famous NFR bucking horse. I forget the mare's name. The injury occurred when she kicked through steel slats. It took several people, and a crow bar, to free her leg, which was hung. She got purchased for a very small amount of $$. She ended up in the right hands, because the outcome could have been terrible, and the proud flesh could have really got out of hand quickly.

It doesn't matter as to how safe you think your horses are they will always find something to injure themselves on!

I helped to bring a two year old colt in from a field after he had galloped into a post and rail fence and impaled himself through the chest so the rail came out through his ribs by his elbow.

My yearling's grand dam impaled herself so that her heart was actually visible looking through her chest. She lived and foaled later that year.

This was also done on a gate latch which was on the outside of the gate.

I am very safety conscious and this was a freak accident. Around and about I see horses kept in poorly fenced fields with loose barb wire, chain harrows and other rubbish left lying around but they never seem to injure themselves.

Wow, was going to post but Molly the Clutz's injuries have been nothing close to this. I guess that makes me pretty fortunate, huh?

Classic's Boo Boo

He tried to squeeze between a fence and a dog pen when he was accidentally let out by one of the kids. I saw the whole thing happen and it was horrifying. But he healed wonderful. Has a decent scar, I will try to find an after picture.

Willows Eye

Not sure how she did it. Had to sedate and cut off the flap. I will add an updated picture. Cannot even tell that much happened. I scared the daylights out of me!

Yes she is sound, fat and sassy. She's not very fit, as she's only two and hasn't done anything since the injury. My brown filly, miss fancy pants, just had to show off get in the spotlight, too. lol
