My mare does shut the door behind her!
She walks herself right to her stall, pushes her gate open then heads in, turns around, whips it shut and nickers.

Here's a picture of the injury the vet sent me. You can see the flap of skin/tissue; he got the fence below that and tore a lot away from the bone.

They want to keep him longer, for a month. My friend and I are going to go talk to them and see what they're doing that we can't do. We're familiar with bandaging these type of wounds, just depends on how often they expect to have to come out.

It would appear that he is less worried about his nasty wound than we are! LOL. Love the huge eyed Christmas picture...you can definitely tell exactly what he thinks of his decorations xD

Yikes, a month at the vet? I can't even imagine. Sorry. I hope you can figure out how to get him home!

Best wishes,

Is it normal to not stitch a wound like that? Sorry, I've never had to deal with something so drastic. I would have just imagined that stitches would have been included? Or would that only be in a human injury?

Stitching anything on a horse's leg is 50/50 at best- they tend to swell so terribly that the stitches pull out/through the skin and then you have something even more mangled at the end of it to deal with and an even bigger loss of skin you've got to heal and grow back. Add that to the wound being infected as it's hours from when it happened to the point when the vet is looking at it, stitching it closed usually fails on horse legs unless it's really neat cut that is also really fresh.

It sounds like the wire ran down the bone under the skin and flesh on this guy's leg too. Stitch that closed and all that area where it's not attached under the skin turns into a big old pocket of infection that could result in losing the leg and thereby the horse. It looks like it's starting to take off and heal, which is great!
