    Rexy was retired from riding earlier this year due to a front leg with pretty severe arthritis so not overly concerned about riding soundness. Vet thinks he would be riding sound on the injured leg once its healed if he weren't already retired though.

    This is what it looks like at day 3. I'm surprised how very little swelling there has been.

    Vet is coming again in about an hour. He's developed a bit of swelling and heat in his hock, rather be safe than sorry!

    Yearling
    Hang in there! We had a serious wound on our colt when he was 7months old. (you can search Comanche wound) He severed his front extensor tendon. It took a little time to heal but it did heal and he walks and runs like normal.

    Hang in there!!

    Swelling will stay down because of the bandaging.

    As infection should be under control please get some Resolve Wound - it is wonderful stuff and, heals wounds like this, and worse, faster than anything I have ever come across in many years of dealing with horses.
    Look at the injuries and you will see what I mean!
    My yearling is on there and his wound is all but gone. My vet thought it would be at least Christmas before it was even looking like coming together. Resolve Wound was the answer and has speeded up the healing by several months.

    Ivhave had huge amounts of success with the natural honey on wounds so that is what we will continue using on vet's advice. Unfortunately things that are readily available in the US just are not available over here.

    Vet had a look last night and commented that the wound has shrunk considerably already. She is slightly concerned about the swelling and heat in his hock, but as his temp is normal and he isn't off his feed she wants me to just watch it closely for now am call her again if there is any change. Theres one part where the flesh holding the stitches looks a little weak and if that gives she will have to come back and restitch as it will expose the bone again.

    I was told one to use Preperation H. I don't know if it works, but it might be worth looking into?

    Oh my gosh that is terrible! At least it looks like he's already healing pretty well. Man that's bad!

    Posted just a couple above you themacpack, she's not unconcerned, but at this stage as his temp is normal and he's not off his feed we are just monitoring closely.

    Swelling has subsided some today, heat is still there, but doesn't seem to be quite as much. We have entered the icky, dead tissue sloughing off stage though so it's not a pretty sight...

    Day 6

    We have shipped Resolve Wound to Australia several times. It takes 7-10 days first class mail. The leg is getting pretty bumpy with proud flesh. Sixty dollars is well worth cutting healing time, and not having an enlarged leg with scarring. I would think that price would be less than a single vet call, plus the horse would be further along than it is now.
