How could this happen? Again.*Warning- Graphic Pictures*

So I went to the farm I board my mare and filly at today. I hadn't been there since Saturday.
I went into the paddock that Sonya and Rumour are in, and said hi to Sonya. I inspected her for any scrapes/lumps/cuts, like I always do, and was horrified when I saw this:




Now, Sonya ripped when foaling Rumour, who is now 9 weeks old. I had the vet stitch her up the day of, and the rip was completley healed. I am not sure what day this happened as the Barn did not call me. Which makes me suspicios, because it is pretty hard not to notice the rip.

I am wondering if this could have been caused by a stallion? There are several stallions on the property. I'm not sure how else this could have happened, since her tail should protect that area.
I am pretty sure Sonya was in heat these last few days, because the timing is right, which would make it a possibility that she is pregnant. If she is she will have to get an abortion, since I cannot afford her, Rumour, and another foal.

We are hopefully going to be moving Sonya and Rumour to another farm tomorrow if the new barn calls us back.

So, do you guys have any suggestions as to what I can put on this, and should I call the vet? I am not sure what day this happened, so I dont know if it is too late for stitches.

This rip almost looks worst than the rip she got when foaling.

Here are a few other pictures of the rip:

I would call a vet and I hate to tell you this but it appears that she has been bred yet again...and as MANY of us have suggested in a few of the threads that you have had before MOVE SONYA ALREADY.

Does that injury continue on down her leg? If so, she may have backed into something other than a stallion. I hate to see it happen at all, but it would be preferable to breeding her to a stallion you weren't prepared for.

I know that many of you have been telling me to move them, it's just that my mom was not in the right spot financially to move them. We owe them back-board, but my mom doesn't care. She says we are moving them ASAP, hopefully tomorrow.

No, that is just blood/discharge. I wish she had backed into something. That would be so much better than her being bred again.
This will be the 2nd unwanted pregnancy in a row....

I know the feeling. I'm sure that son in law will "accidentally on purpose" sneak his dang stallion in with the two mares while I'm at work, just like he did the last time. I'm going to sneak his precious stud to the vet on of these mornings for a quick snip! (He'll never notice!)

Haha, yes. That would be a good idea!

I wish I could do that to the stallions at this barn. Unfortunatley, there are 6 of them, so it would be pretty hard to be sneaky about it.

I am pretty sure I have a good idea about who the stallion is though. An Arabian that they are claiming is sterile. I am hoping to god they are telling the truth this time.

Amen.
Not to be rude at all, I really don't want to come across that way, but that foaling video scared me. Please move Sonya.

Oh, I know. I dont like that the guy was yanking on my foal. I would have had her foal outside but there were 15 other horses in her pasture. The barn also wouldn't let me take down boards of the stall to give her more room.
I am hoping that the new barn calls us back and we move them tomorrow.


Does anyone have any suggestions on medication I could put on the wound until I can get the vet out?
