    Theres an idea Celeste! Would vaseline work too? I've been putting vaseline around the wound and below it to prevent her skin from being scalded from any drainage or medication too (she was starting to loose hair around there) so I can definitely see that working.

    It will be there Monday or Tuesday :) Hope it helps her feel better and keeps the nasty pests off of her while she's healing.

    He said that for what it is, it looks good, but recommended that we don't try to over-clean it because we could accidently destroy growing, healthy tissue. Its so hard not to want to scrub it or something though! Not much we can go for it but keep the good in and the bad out at this point. He said to continue with the sugardine because it will harden and form a barrier on the flesh, and to watch for any signs of heat, fever, or excessive swelling because that could mean infection. If that happens, we're to call him immediately. I'm keeping a log of her temperature.

    He said his guess was as good as ours as far as hearing goes though. The slice is deep enough to mess with some the vital parts of her ear but he can't tell how badly they were damaged, and doesn't know if they'll repair themselves or not. She can feel her entire ear though, miraculously. If I blow on the tip of her ear she'll flick it weakly.

    Fayde, are you going to want a halter and leadrope that you can take for her, or are you planning to bring one? I also need to know which day you're planning to come ^_^

    I have a fairly new flat web medium horse halter that should be big enough to stay loose around her ear to keep from reopening anything, and I have a small-ish rope halter made from oversized cord so it isn't as "bite-y" as a normal thin rope halter. I'll bring both and see which is better, and if neither fit we'll figure it out then. And I never travel without a couple leadropes, you just never know when you may need to tie up a loose dog, horse, cow or other critter.

    If it's ok on your end, I think we have decided on Saturday, so you and the BO will both be able to be there without disturbing your (or her) schooling.
