Just when he started to look sexy :/

So some of you know winter has just finished here and Buzz was looking really good, putting his weight back on and getting some muscle.

Well today he goes and hurts himself
I did get pics but there on my phone and I lost the cord to the computer.

But I will try and explain it, maybe I will draw a pic on paint...

I will give ago explaining it, its on his left side near his hip joint.
Its wider the end near his stifle, only about .5-1cm wide the whole graze is about 30cm long.

It's not that deep, went through a layer of skin, but didn't bleed that much, which surprised me.

I sprayed it with an iodine spray and centrogin(I usually just call it purple spary so not to sure if that name is right) spray. I think they both do they same thing but I just wanted to be sure, purple one usually stops the bugs.

From what my friend told me he was impiing for about 10 mins after he did it, but the time I got there he wasn't limping at all, I made him trot and he seemed fine.

Sorry for the long post, he hasn't really hurt himself like this before.
I will probs post pics tomorrow.

I've always said could put my horses in a padded stall for safety and they would figure out how to eat the padding. Darn horses never give us a break

haha at least I know Buzz isn't the only one.

Does it sound like I have done the right thing?
I am ready to take him to the vet need be, but it was Sunday and I really didn't want to take him there and they just say its fine and charge me lots of money.

Do you think hair will grow over it? Gahhh I really wanted to show him heaps next year as I have finished school and I was going to start having lessons, but I'm not to worried.
I just hope it will be okay

okay sorry for double post but I FOUND MY CAMERA CORD.

I went into my brothers room haha, never again

Anyway here are the pics

I don't think these are that graphic but some people may so be warned





Here it is from a distance




Close up of the wider side




Close up of the skinner side


What does everyone think is kay to just leave it and keep sprayiong it or should I take him to the vet?

These were also from yesterday I don't know what it looks like today.
If it does look any worse I am taking him to the vet, but if not I will just keep spraying it.

If it gets dirty should I just clean it with cold water?

Just keep it cleaned up twice a day and put purple spray on it.
Get something called EquiSkin and put that on it as well, or even by itself. That stuff is AMAZINGLY good. Worth the $35 I paid for it 100 times over.
My horse "redecorated" a float and cut up his left legs pretty bad a couple months ago. You wouldn't even know it happened. I was really worried about it scarring but you can't tell anything happened. There's no marks and the hair grew back. Just keep picking off the scabs and putting the EquiSkin on it and in a few days it'll be fine.

I got it from an (over priced) tack shop so you might be able to get it at a tack shop, feed shop if you're lucky.
