So normally I go outside once a day usually in the afternoon just to check on the horses. They have an automatic waterer and unlimited hay. Well around lunchtime my brother looked out the window and said that my horses were loose. I just laughed because he often says that to bug me and they have never gotten loose before. Anyway it turns out he was telling the truth. They were just standing in the middle of the driveway all relaxed. So I brought them back to their pasture and I found the gate wide open and the panel next to the gate was bent up and there was hair on it.
Anyway long story short. My gelding must have gotten stuck somehow in the fence (probably by rolling into it) and bent up the fence really bad and cut his leg. He is walking fine and he doesn't flinch when I press on the cut. It must have happened sometime during the night because the wound is frozen and there are tracks all over the yard.
I'm going to go out right now and take some pictures and maybe a video of him moving and I'm hoping that some of you can tell me what you think. My dad says Lance is fine and I know he won't ok a vet unless something is really wrong. The thing is that I am the only person in my family who likes horses so I know I'm biased that way but because my dad doesnt really like horses I would appreciate a second opinion. So I would really appreciate everyones advice. Thanks in advance. :)
