    I really hate to go off subject here, but can you do us a BIG favor and use periods (.) to end your sentences, please? It's really hard to read and understand your posts when you can't tell where one sentence ends and the other begins when you don't use punctuation.

    Thank you so much.

    How deep is this gash? And is it over the hock or fetlock joint?
    If it is over a joint, PLEASE get the vet out asap. Coming from someone who has just spent 18month rehabbing a horse with a joint injury, which then contracted infection from something as tiny as a joint injection admininstered by a vet at the veterinary hospital, you NEED to get a vet to look at it. Injection loves joints, joints don't love infection - they will be wrecked so quickly, and the horse will probably need to be retired as a result.

    If it is deep, and the horse is not walking well, I would also be very nervous about tendon injury. That's another one that if infection sets in, by by horsey's useful life and hello big vet bills.
