link to a badly cut up rescue horse

So today I was browsing on FHOTD (I don't agree with everything but like to entertain myself with her comments)...anyhow here is a link of what is on there now:

It is very disturbing...so if you don't like seeing bad gashes I wouldnt open this...

Poor horse though, I can't imagine the pain. The rescue that has him is going to have a tough road ahead of them with keeping this clean. God bless them...

OMG, I don't think I've ever seen something like that. Wow, they just sprayed some crap on there and left it? Whew, I had an emergency vet call when my filly got a very clean gash about 1 inch wide, 6 inches in length. I would be in shock if I walked out to find my horse in that condition!!! Although, Im pretty sure any savvy horse owner wouldn't have left a horse tied to a FENCE in the first place. Poor thing, I hope the owners are brought to justice, although horray for them giving the horse to someone who was willing to spend the time on him!

Wow, and to think I pull out all the stops when he's got a 1inch X 1inch cut, I would be hysterical if that happened to my horse!!

Some people really should NEVER own ANY animals!

Thank God for his rescuers!

That is so horrible, ugh. :( I have to go with FGR on this one- some people!!!!!! Poor horse- but I'm very glad he's healing up a bit & that he's out of his misery.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

I would think that it would be a nightmare keeping flies out of those wounds...how do you keep it from getting infected??? I don't know what I would do if my horse would get wounds like these :(

Aside from the fact his previous owner is an idiot I must say horses never seise to amaze me in what they can handle. That wound is massive, and altho he clearly wouldnt have survived it in the wild , its still alot of trauma for his body and from the photos he generally seems happy.

Looser owner.....amazing horse 8)

WHAT!!!

I think I would have a heart attack if my horse had wounds like that when I came home one day!!! I would call every vet in the county, no state! Because I would be afraid the poor horse would end up dying from those kind of wounds!

We should find the original owners and let them have a "accident" with a BBQ pit...

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
