    HowClever - a good way to be able to wash the wound well but without the risk of adding germs from cloths, hands etc is to make up a solutioin of saline in a weedspray pump container - I use a 4 litre one.

    Sterilise the new bottle with boiling water then make up a mix of saline - 1 teaspoon to a pint of water - pump up well an spray the wound.

    I've just done this for my 6yr old that put his leg through the fence - nothing as bad as yours though - his leg has healed to a line now.

    PLease keep posting pictures as its great to se injuries healing.

    I actually have a weak solution of iodine made up in a weed pump sprayer that I usually use for cleaning wounds. The unfortunate thing here though, is that while Rexy is a model patient, stands politely even for stitching, the one thing he absolutely despises? Sprays! So to keep bandage change time stress free I'm using sterile gauze soaked in saline to clean it up.

    Domn't stress yourself - Having worked with yearling preperation for a big stud I can tell you that theTB's suffer low grade founder form an early age - they are fed do much extra stuff to make them look like advanced yearlings so they sell well. Many of the yearlings were on Founderguard to help combat the foundering problem

    Poor TB's don't have a 'good feet' chance in life fed as they are.

    We seem to have the acute stage of the founder under control, so now it's just about management.

    Day 15 and I am pretty darn happy with the way the wound is looking.

    Day 19 and I am so, so happy with the direction we are headed in. So much new, healthy skin growth, parts of which are already attempting to grow hair!
