Lol I'll start putting all my spare change into a jar and start one for you as well!!! I have to laugh it off cause it's like REALLY OLLIE??! I swear he has my school calendar hanging in his stall so he could plan all this out for finals!
Gonna repeat here the best advice a trainer ever gave me.
"Relax. You know that if you wrapped them in bubble wrap or cotton batting and stuck them in a padded stall to keep them from injuring themselves. They'd eat the padding, colic and die, don't you?"
She was SOOOOO right. Does he have a water bucket? Those loops where the bucket handle attaches are notorious for the type of injury you're describing. Vetricyn might not be bad for the cut, just spray it in a few times a day.
When my daughter was four she fell out of a push car at daycare and bit through her tongue hard enough it was 1/3 of the way through - daycare freaked and called me, I freaked and rushed her to the hospital, doctor thought it was interesting but other than a salt water rinse each night said there wasn't really any treatment other than time. She is 6 now and has a thick scar across her tongue, but fine.
I think he'll recover no problem, but you could try a saltwater rinse each night...
Ace, thank you! What a great idea!
Dream cather I'm sure if he had water buckets that would be just what caused it! But we have automatic waters... I'd much prefer water buckets so I could know how much he's been drinking and what not. There where no marks in his stall whatsoever :(
