    Ok. Would steinhausers or TSC have that, or do I need to order it? I don't think we have any if it actually. Theres the issue of actually getting it ON too, since she's so paniccy right now, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. She let me get as far as touching her upper cheek and around her eye while she was eating her dinner, so that might be an idea. I can't imagine how bad that must hurt.

    Doesn't seem to be affecting her energy though, crazily enough...I actually saw her canter for the first time ever today because she's upset about being seperated from her new 'bestest friend ever' that she met last month. And she was totally cool with wolfing down dinner as usual.

    Can you guys get dogs that bark?

    I'd get a vocal dog and sit in that barn with a couple of people and loaded guns IMO.

    Your TSC should have it...mine does. It's a farnam product I believe (they make wonder dust and other stuff) it comes in a little tub with a screw top.

    I'm so sorry! I've had good success with woundkote, you can buy it at TSC it's in a blue can and sprays on purple. I like it because you don't have to touch the injury just spray but with it being her ear I don't know how she will respond to the spraying sound.

    That ear may do better than you think it will. I have seen ears torn severely like that and they heal ok. She could have gotten it caught on something.

    This is not a lethal injury. She may end up looking funny, or she may look just fine. I don't think that she is going to be a high dollar horse, but that doesn't mean that she can't be a nice little riding horse.

    Don't panic. She should be ok.

    Woundkote is a farnam product as well but no fly repellant properties.

    It probably won't turn upright again though, will it? If the neves and muscles have all been torn? Some of the muscle was pieced back together but not much of it. Maybe she needs a new namy.... Floppy.

    I'm not seeing SWAT on the TSC website but that doesnt mean it isn't there. I can check on Monday, they're closed tomorrow and its almost an 1 1/2 hour drive. If they don't have it, I can order it off of Farnam's website.

    Sorrel- we might have to. The BO has some bloodhounds that make all sorts of ruckus, but she probably wouldn't go for having them out there since they're blue blooded, prized hunting dogs. We may have to invest in a guard dog or something though.

    My neighbor's filly managed to put a 2" cut in her nostril, stitching was unsuccessful, ripped open on day 3, just as the vet predicted. I used Nitrofurazone, generously, twice a day, healer without a scar and didn't seem to bother or sting/burn her upon application.
    You'll have to gain her trust again, don't go only in with her for doctoring. Can you put on a neckstrap, so you can grab her easily without the hassle of haltering?
    Good that some was stitched at least. The antibiotic should have been a depot shot, so she'll be good to go.
    Poor girl. Both of you...

    It may stand up again. They flop like that when they are hurt. I have seen several that looked that bad that did fine.
