Yea, she wants to keep it casted the whole time. This is the third horse with a similar woumd she has done like this. Yea, this is a hard cast to. And surprisingly, i dont think she in any pain. Shes not the least bit lame. She paws in her stall. Shes used to roaming a 900 acre piece of land, so now to be cooped up in a 12x24 stall, shes a bit antsy.

I want to say my hats off to the Vet you have, that was quite a challenge and I wish the mare the very best of good healing and luck.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.

I'd be worried about an infection growing in there with it being casted and trapped moisture. I'd hate to be cooped up too, 900 acres seems like an awful lot of fun. the wound looks substantially better though. I hope she heals soon, best of luck.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

I have seen some pretty nasty wounds in all my horse years. And it always amazes me how well they heal. Good luck to you. But if I were to bet I would guess she will be fine.

That is amazing the hoof growth from those set of pictures, last year I had a neighbor's stallion jump his fence and then tore my fencing up to get to my mare and they got into a fight. He basically filet my mares leg down to her coronary band, with his long feet,the stallion was 8 never halter or lead broke they just stuck him in a pasture with poor fencing and no grass,it was sad conditions.

It took 6 months to heal my mare's leg and cuts on her thighs and even my gelding was jumped. Some people just should not own horses. I didn't even know there was a stallion up behind me in all that time.

I thought from the pictures that the vet did a great job of removing the proud flesh and the cast is a must or you'll end up with the wound being split open constantly by movement or knocking against obstacles and open to bacteria.

That area is a difficult area to heal to say the least..debriding would only start after it is well on it's way of healing over.

I would think it's time for that rancher to start checking and fixing fences don't cha think ?

Best to the horse always.
