Yay! His leg looks so wonderful. <3

btw.. He isn't ganted up.. he just stands funny from putting all his weight on the right. I've been monitoring his water intake to make sure he's drinking lots. :) I think I took pics at bad angles too lol.

You're a better person than I am.
If the BO has brought him in locked him in his stall and fed him in my eyes thats ample time to notice a MISSING CHUNK OF LEG.

Of course the BO isn't to blame for the injury but I'd certainly be annoyed with the BO for missing it.

In my eyes part of the daily routine needs to be a look over the horses. I could understand missing something small or tucked away behind a leg. Not that.

Meh. Honestly, she is great, and is doing a wonderful job taking care of Walter. She felt horrible, she cried, and we are working together to get him back on track. She loves this horse. I guess if you believe in Karma, she got it back, as her filly did the same thing.

She cleans his leg when I can't get out, and keeps me posted during the day how he is. I am really happy at this barn. If this had happened at the last barn I boarded at down the road, that BO would have charged me out the a$$ for every little thing.

I have nothing bad to say about her. No one is perfect. Sometimes things are missed.

Walter is absolutely adorable! I adore his face.
This might be kind of an odd question, but I'm just curious. Since there is "a chunk missing from his leg" and nothing to stitch back up, is his leg going to grow everything again? Like from the inside out to the skin and fur?
Like I said, it might kind of an odd question but I've just never seen an injury like that before.

I think that is what is supposed to happen lol. It looks like it is starting to fill in a little. I think the skin flap on his leg will either die and fall off or be cut off by the vet, or it might attach itself back to the leg. I think at some point we won't have to wrap his leg anymore and that will allow it to kinda scab over and start growing back together.

But I don't know! Haha this is a first for me.

Unhappy Ugh!

So it snowed Friday, didn't get out. Saturday his leg was looking really good. Snowed again Sunday, was sick Monday. Got out today... and... there is proud flesh :( I am gonna call the vet tomorrow and see what she has in mind to do next. It grew so rapidly... I'm so sad.

Day 10 and Day 13.

A minor set back. You'll be able to get it under control as you're staying on top of things.

When my filly sliced her leg open and lacerated the extensor tendon [much similar injury to Walter's, but not as bad] we had proud flesh that bad.

Proud-Aid [idk if you can get it in the US] did wonders, never had to have the vet out to cut off anything. Four months down the track and she has a scar, and a big lump on her leg, but is sound as a bell and healing wonderfully. I've been riding her on and off since just shy of 3 months post-injury and would in fact have been able to get on earlier, but wanted to play it safe. The vet said 3 months rest so the tendon could heal.

I can't remember what it cost but it wasn't crazy expensive and I still have 3/4 of the pot left so I have plenty for the next injury. I have horses... injuries are inevitable lol.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

Called the vet yesterday- she said to use cortisone cream. It was so windy, I couldn't get to the vet's office, nor was the grid open to get to the barn. Today is going to be even worse- it's still blowing, and it's supposed to snow too. :( I just want to get to the barn! I have all his wraps washed and ready to go there. And I want to get the cream on his leg so I can start tackling this stupid proud flesh. Gah. I hate SK Winters... :(
