kicked in the head!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just got home from school a half-hour ago. My frirnd brings horses in during the week after school. She like just called me and said Outlaw has a huge cut under his eye like a inch long and pretty deep. She dosen`t know if she should call a vet. She called our trainer he said whait till he gets their so he can look at it. But that's not intill 5. Tiff said one of the other horses kicked him. Plese trie to calm me down. If he calls the vet I have to go to the barn. Help!!!!!!!!!!

If he is getting around alright I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just try and relax and think good thoughts until you hear more :) Just have faith that it will be okay!!

I'm so sorry to hear that you are in this position; it's not a good feeling to be out of control of the situation. Make sure that the owner of the horse (if it's not you, your friend or the trainer) is aware of the injury. It is generally best to call them first and let them be the one to make decisions about whether or not to call the vet.

If you know that the owner is likely not to take the horse's well-being into account, you can always call the vet yourself, but then you may be stuck with the bill.

Injuries to the head and around the eye can be serious and should be treated proactively. As someone already stated, some injuries look far worse than they actually are though.

Good luck!

I don't want to stress you anymore but personally Id be getting a vet and Xrays asap.

Anything involving the head can potentially be very serious, and although it may look worse than it is, but may also not look as bad as it could be. If that makes sense.

My TB was kicked in the jaw by my little paint 2 years ago and he ended up with a fracture. He was on antibiotics for close to 3 months and the only way you could tell that he had an injury was a slight swelling and tiny bald spot under his chin.

My friend is overeactive it was a small cut and barlly blead but it was very very close to his eye he is ok it just needs bag bomb. At my old barn a differnt friend`s horse fell and cut his name really bad and allmost neeeded stiches and the barn owner just sate on her but and left.

He is okay . Outlaw is just his self again he didn`t need a vet. My trainer just had to put stuff on it. We arent sure if he got kicked or scrached him self?
