Ok I had had an up hill battle doing it tough at the moment. I got 2 horses, 1 in gelorup and one in waterloo....20-30mins away from each other. It's currently winter so little daylight after work. So I got from work to my new horse barney to ride (20 mins from work) then I feed him and all that. I usually get home about 7pm. So because of that I wouldn't check in on my other horse as often as i'm not riding him. The owners keep an eye on him and there was another chick out there that would do her horse every night. My horse had been there for about 6 months in the same paddock
So last saturday I get a phone call from the owner of the property telling me that he's been informed that my horse has a cut on his leg. All my gear is in waterloo so I got out with whatever I find in the cupboard at home. I get out there and look at it and I cry. It's pretty bad, all gooy and bleeding and deep and covered in sand (must have happened during the night) so I call the vet out and she scrubs it and puts stuff on it and bandages it. She says to leave it on for 3 days then take it off and do nothing. I did that on wednesday and there was proud flesh (growing out) and it was yellow and sooooo gross, she did tell me this. So I leave it and this is what it looked like on wednesday when I removed the bandage.
And this is what it looked like friday (sorry the picture is blurry)
So I went and got copper sulphate, dermacleanse and cetrigen (purple spray). I put dermocleanse on, then put copper sulphate in the centre of the wound and the sprayed with purple spray.
What would you do with an injury like that??
