    My mare did that when the fence was off. I came out that morning to find her hobbled on both back legs.

    Lucky for both of us, she just stood there and waited to be rescued! No harm done except for some hair loss. Didn't even swell up.

    This really makes me question the use of electric fencing. How safe is it really? I had my mare bolt through the fencing one time, it all came down and there was no damage done. Other than that she did get a couple of shocks!

    Good luck! I hope he heals up and is sound for you!

    Thanks for all the good luck wishes guys! Crossing fingers that he doesn't have any complications or need sequestrum surgery. That's my big worry right now.

    The main thing I would worry about is proud flesh. My friends mare severed an artery on her rear legs (of course she waits until she is in foal to hurt herself). As she put it "It looked like she had a brain growing out of her leg!". She got something called Proud Flesh Begone, ate away at it and now there is not even a scar.

    Good for you for choosing to go through with the vet bills, I know it's a very hard choice sometimes.
    And I just have to say, YOGIWICK, you are a hero - you are the only other person I've heard of who loves their sheep enough to spend that much on them!!! Kudos to you
    lol yeah... they are all pets :) Not just "livestock" to me. They know it too:
    imgur: the simple image sharer (sleeping lamb and turtle) How can you think otherwise?

    If you have the money and the animal is young and healthy and has a reasonable chance of recovery I think you should always go for it. Maybe not the same story for an older ill animal, but it is heartbreaking to put down a healthy baby. I think they deserve a chance.

    I use electric mesh (tape) and am happy with it. It is easier to see and has more give/break and won't cut the way a thin strand will. I haven't had an issue and they all respect it. I know electric strands are popular though.

    Poor Stryder! Super jingles headed his way.

    FWIW, I really believe that this thread is worth reading by everyone who has a horse that gets a similar injury.

    Apps! They are so bad! Same leg Walter hurt himself on last March! Walter went straight to the bone, through muscle and tendon. He healed up, and then we had to go back in to remove a bone chip. Now he has a tiny bump on his leg, and you can see where they went in for the bone chip.

    That's our thread.

    I will have Stryder in my thoughts every day. Make sure you follow vet orders, and keep us updated :) If you need anyone to talk to shoot me a message.

    Sorry to hear about your horse. Healthy horses heal remarkably well and with some TLC and time he should be fine. I understand about finances but the photos (though bad) show a pretty clean wound (esp the after pic) with no bone discolouration. (of course time can be evidence revealing). I have seen worse that healed pretty well (with close supervision and care) and no surgery needed. He will probably have a scar though which can be a bummer if he's a show prospect. Some horses like some ppl are just accident prone, no one can explain it. Perhaps he will out grow it. We can only hope.

    Most of the electric fences I have been around usualy short out if they touch the ground. (grounded out) or diminish greatly in electricity depending on the voltage. Horses are sensitive to electricity. If he was getting royaly shocked he would have done by far more damage than just tearing up his leg. So I wouldnt worry to much in that respect.
