It's hard to tell from the picture, is there a barn owner or someone experienced you could ask? It obviously isn't life threatening at this point, so don't panic :) If it is gaping open and you can see the muscle under the skin you may need stitches- but keep in mind usually the vet can only do stiches within about 6 hours of the wound happening- if it is a couple days old I would just keep it clean and dry, maybe top it with a vet reccomended ointment/topical antiseptic. Best of luck!
