i am new to this

I have a 10 year old mare and recentlly moved her to new pasture. Went riding sunday and went to see her tonite and her coronet band looks as though a peice of it was shaved off like you would take the peel off an apple it was fleshy and a little bloody but now I don't know what to do or if it will even heal. I put some stuff called powder h (i think) its suposed to prevent infection and proud flush on it but thets it. When we walked she limped a little and was not bleeding but it is fleshy. Is my horse going to be okay

She will be ok, she just cut herself, much like you cut yourself, most of the time it is not life threatening.

So we can help, can you google and find out what you put on it?

This is the most common thing - was it this?

Well if you are too worried about it you can call an equine vet. Even if they don't come out to see her, you can at least ask one what they think about it.

That said it sounds like one of those wounds that just plain happens. She may have scraped her foot and gotten a cut. Keep it clean and keep an eye on it. If it doesn't get better be sure to have a vet out.

Is it on the front or the side of her coronet band? The only thing that can be concerning is the growth of the new hoof with an injury like this, depending on the depth of the wound.If its just a scrape (not much blood, no gauge) then I wouldn't worry about it. Like I said if you are worried call up a vet and ask them. But it sounds like a scrape that will get better with proper care from you.

Unless it is gaping open, I wouldn't call a vet for this, but of course I am not seeing it.

Do you have a farrier you can call? Can you send photos with your phone?

While it is not ideal, it is not the end of the world - is it a gaping wound that you think might need stitches?

If not, horses hurt themselves all the time, in fact often they specialize in it. Particularily in the weeks when we have no extra money.

Can you post a pic of it?


As I am not seeing it though, if you are worried, you should probably call a vet - there is no internet advise that compares with a professional seeing it.

If you are really that worried about it, call your vet and tell him/her what you are seeing and ask his/her personal opinion. I think it's just a scrape, IMO.

I like Blu Kote. Try and invest in some :) It sounds like she just scraped himself up, just clean it up and keep an eye on it over the next few days. If you feel any heat, swelling, etc... than I would call a vet. If it's not gushing blood or something that needs stitches than I wouldn't worry.
