    The wound looked SO GOOD today!! Nice and flat, and new skin growth on the edge. And not very much ooze at all on the bandage.



    And all I had put on it when we wrapped it on Thursday night was just a little bit of hydrocortisone on the lower corner that was raised. I put no salve on anything else.

    So since everything looked so great today, I put nothing on for salve, and just wrapped 'er up. The vet instructed me to do this when I was getting close to going without a bandage, to help dry up the wound a little bit.

    So we are making progress! I'm glad he is because I am giving him one more week off, and then it is back to work! We've got a barrel racing clnic in about a month, so he needs to get into shape. And he is sound on the leg, so I am cleared by the vet to start riding him.

    Looking good. :) Glad he's healing. It just baffles me how well they bounce back from the nastiest looking cuts. I started riding my mare 11 weeks after she literally cut the top area of her heal wide open. She's sound as can be now. A little exercise will actually help bring circulation to the cut which is a good thing.

    So I couldn't help but notice, is that a snow plow attachment behind your horse? Something you would never find in our barn here in TX so it caught my attention. :) I love seeing what's behind people and their horses in pics as much as the actual people and horses!

    Lol, yes it is a 4-wheeler with a snow plow attachment behind him. That's what they use to clear the snow around the yard!

    Well the wound is still healing good! Although silly me forgot to take photos last night.

    I took off his bandage and decided to try to leave it off permanently. We'll see how it goes.

    Red had an equine massage at the end of Sept. No major issues.
    Red had his dental work in Nov. No major issues.
    Red just saw the chiropractor last week. No major issues.
    And then Red just had a complete wellness check with my equine lameness vet last night, along with his dewormer, vaccinations, fecal, and coggins. And no major issues!!
    So only the last thing I have to take care of before I can finally start riding him after all of this injury mess, is to have the farrier take care of his feet on Saturday morning. (His hooves are long because he is overdue!!)

    So Mr. Red has no excuse because I know he's 100% healthy and that wound is not bothering him. Almost time to go back to work!

    And I've already got my game plan --> we are going out into the large farming field across the road and I am just going to let him do his thing first. I want to get all that SILLY out of him, before I try to do anything constructive.


    I'm really tempted to go ride tonight because it's going to get to almost 50 degrees today (heat wave!!!) but I've gotta make myself hold out until his feet are done.

    Okay. I couldn't help myself last night. I went riding. It was just too danged gorgeous outside! (although it cooled off really quick when the wind picked up)

    I was prepared for Red to be a little firecracker monster. I rode once at an indoor arena in January before he got hurt, but I can't remember the last time I rode outside. Probably was early November.

    And he really wasn't all that bad!! I just wanted to walk the whole time, because the field we were walking in had patches of ice, and wasn't thawed completely (so there was a layer of frozen ground under the water and small layer of mud).

    I had to circle him now and then (basically a one-rein stop sort of thing) to keep him from going faster or acting silly, but all-in-all he did pretty dang good!

    I was a bit worried when I caught him though, as his leg was VERY swollen. But I bet they had just been standing around all afternoon basking in the sun, and I bet he stocked up from that. Once I started walking him and riding him, the swelling went away 100%.

    Tonight is going to be too cr@pp^ to ride, most likely, with sleet and rain/snow garbage. But hopefully tomorrow it will be decent. Sunday we're hauling to an indoor to ride and then he'll get a GOOD workout!

    I am super happy too. Glad to have him sound and well, with probably only a small scar to show for it.

    Yikes. I had glanced at this thread before, but now that I'm dealing with almost an identical injury (only deeper), It's been really interesting reading through your thread.

    Glad your boy is healing so well, can't wait to see more pictures as it progresses!
