I'd just like one whole month without an illness or injury!

Seriously! This is getting flat out ridiculous.

So Phoenix has gone and cut himself open. Right under his jaw.



That was how I found it. It is actually about a centimetre deep. I cleaned it up and sprayed it with betadine and have been applying Septicide cream.

However, I noticed a nasty smell yesterday, so obviously we have some infection too. So, I got some antibiotics for him today, gave him his first injection a few hours ago.

Now to my actual question. He is developing some proud flesh. It is not in a place that I can bandage or cover in anyway. What's the best way to go about managing the proud flesh? I have heard names like wonderdust, but don't think we can get it over here.

Will try to remember to snap some new photos tomorrow.

ETA: We have walked the paddock and can not for the life of us find what he did it on

Are you sure he cut himself and this is not an abscess or such popping out?

I typically just use sugar.
So this is what happened.... ***GRAPHIC***
These are the results.... and I had no proud flesh. Never do when using sugar.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

There is a spray called granulex that is great. We have had two horses with pretty horrific injuries that we have used this on to cut down or prevent the proud flesh from taking over. Good stuff. I believe you should be able to find it at your local feed store.

I know the feeling, I hope your herd is OK!! I honestly believe a horse could injure itself in a padded room. Keeping my fingers crossed for you that it isn't an abcess.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Well, I cleaned it up again today and it is a million percent better than it was. It didn't bleed when I cleaned it and most of the swelling is gone, as well as a lot of the heat. I bought a product to put on proud flesh, but am thinking I may not use it on this wound now.

Glad it is getting better.

(Not near as adorable as the cute butt on your pony when we went through that, I must say. )

Nope gaping wounds don't really make me squeal at the cuteness either! Haha. For what it is worth he is a pretty boy when not marred with grossness.
