You did a great job on caring for that leg - it looks like it healed up GREAT!

We are on week 4 of a very similar injury on a yearling filly - stall rest with limited handwalking was NOT fun the first 3 weeks for a hyper 12 month old TB filly. Finally on daylight solo turnout, and healing. Looking at your progression pics reminds me we are right on track with how her's is looking.

Nothing anymore!

Initially we put Derma Gel on it, then when proud flesh developed, to no surprise on a lower leg injury, we put a hydro cortisone cream on it (I think! Lol). Now its all up to him to heal it. I wrapped for a long time, and cleaned it everyday with a new sponge, warm water and betadine, and a glove. I was taking no chance on infection of contamination. I used a new clean wrap each time. Now I horse it every couple days after a ride, and pick the scab every couple weeks to see how its doing under there.

Sorry double post- does anyone see any granulation tissue in there? When I showed my aunt the picture she thought she did, but I can't tell anymore lol. Should I be putting proud flesh cream on for a couple days again?

Granulation tissue is good - its how horses heal their legs. If the Granulation overgrows the boundary of the wound, only then is it proud flesh, and only then would I treat it as such.
All the leg wounds I've healed I have let granulate. Not once have I ever used proud flesh cream. Most barely even scar.

ETA you also should not be picking the scab.

The leg injury we have been battling with my horse has reached it's 3rd month... we seem to take a few steps forward and a few back. So it's interesting to see how long you've been dealing with your boy's injury. It seems like an eternity sometimes!
