    Unhappy How I spent my day off.

    Had to work 6-11 last night, got a call from my dad that Winter had a cut.. No big deal so I thought I would just clean it and put something on it.

    He didn't want to come to me last night, to busy playing so I figured he was fine and waited til morning..

    This is what I found







    Looks like more then a cut to me..So I called the vet and she came around 1 this evening.. She sedated him, cut off that meat hanging and cleaned it really well then put three stitches in oh and gave him a tetnaus shot.

    It had went all the way through and hit his bone. She said with proper cleaning it should heal fine.. So I have to doctor his would and give him antibiotics twice a day. His mouth has to be flushed after everytime he eats. What a lovely day off :(

    And now 3 stitches and $237.50 later

    Actually we think one of our hogs got him.. Winter likes to stick his head in the hog pen and try to steal feed and we think the hog bite him.. But he is one of those "wild" boars and has tusks..

    Judging by the size and shape of the wound, I'd say you're probably right. I hope he feels better soon!

    Aww Poor guy.
    Give him a treat and a hug from me (When he can handle being touched of course!)
    I hope he heals fast.

    He is the only one *so far* that has been vicious.. I have fixed the pen where he cannot get his head over there anymore.

    Poor guy : ( You guys thought about putting something between the horses and the hogs so it doesn't happen again? (not meaning to sound rude at all just asking)

    LOL That's fine.. Yeah it's hard to explain how our property is set up... I will have to get pictures one day..But to make this shorter pretty much I have one huge field connected to a smaller paddock type area where at one end is where all the horses and cattle stay to eat the hay, play and everything else and at the other end is where they come to get water and eat grain, be groomed and stuff like that.. At the end where they eat the grain and all that is where I have a chicken house, and pig pen and my building :)
