So today I went to go feed the horses at the barn i'm at and when I went down there the people that were supposed to feed the horses and let them out didn't so most all of the horses were still up. Junior was the only one out in the pasture with all the hay i'm surprised he didn't get a belly ache. Well he was out because he didn't go in his stall according to them so Mickey (the appaloosa) replaced his spot in his stall. Well one of the other horses names Joe got out of the little gate thing he was in and got in the hay loft that was open. So somehow he got himself cut up on his leg i'm guessing he layed down in the hay and got his knee stuck inbetween some of the wood things.
Well we looked at it and its already oozing puss like it was infected. We were confused because if it was over night that's awfully quick to start getting infected. We are trying to think of what could have made it that badly infected. His knee is partly swollen and hair is coming out in clomps its gross. He's my friends horse and I feel bad for her because she tends to have the weirdest things randomly happen to her horse.
So what do you think it could be? I was think maybe a nail could have punctured him and cause an infection maybe it could even be as bad as tetnis(don't know how to spell that) I really hope not though.
