So, lets start off, this is not my horse.
The barn owner brought one of his horses to the barn I keep my horses at. Where, Im basically the barn manager.
The mare stays at his home on 900 acres. His horses are all easy keepers, so he has no need to feed them as they all stay fat on the grass.
Well, he pulled them up to go roping. And this is what she had, covered in dirt mind you.
After we cleaned the dirt, before the vet removed the proud flesh.
The vet cutting the proud flesh,
After the proud flesh had been removed,
With the cast on,
The vet came out, removed the proud flesh. We cleaned the cut, which is really deep. We had a couple small ateries the squirted blood. You can kinda see the streams of blood in some of the pictures. She crushed up some antibiotics and packed in the wound and put a cast on to hold the two pieces together. She has to stay on oral antibiotics for 3 weeks. Bute for a week. And the cast will stay on for 4 weeks. We will cut it off and see if it healed back together. We may have to recast it for another couple weeks. So now its just a waiting game.
