Glad to see those improvement pics...I posted about your calm attitude earlier in this thread and now I am going through the same thing with one of my horses in the same spot.

Boo hurt himself a week ago Thursday and those pics help me cope with his healing..Here is a pic of his wound.

Oh goodness! What did he do? Horses are such clutz sometimes haha. My main thing that kept me calm was he was/is sound. Especially since he is turning three on the 24th. And I've had great support from my mom and BO. This winter has sucked majorly and she takes care of him like her own when I can't get out. I hope your guy heals well! Keep me updated. :)

He is a 6 yr old Bay and took us awhile to find what happened as we first thought he tried to jump a fence and didn't make it over. A few days later I saw where he busted the lid on the old septic tank and his back half dropped in. Thus the skinned areas all over his back end.

We had let the horses up in the front yard to graze on the grass and never in a million years thought that one of them would stand on the lid. I sorta figure he was close to it and the lead mare may have initiated him out of the area causing him to go over the lid. I have since replaced the lid with a couple of heavy steel plates and have not let the horses back out of the pasture til I can get them(lids) covered with dirt.

Well we made it to the vet. It was pretty much what I thought was going on.

Vet did a lameness exam. No lameness, said he moves very lightly and wonderfully lol. Starred at his legs. Contracted tendons, which is why he bounces on his knees. At this point he said exercise and riding would be fine. He wasn't going to do any x-rays, then decided might as well. Did four, front and side view of each knee.

His knees are open still. Some aggravation or something along the outside of the knees. I forgot to take photos of the xrays... my bad! :( So at this point it was decided no riding, and to get him onto pasture for 3-4 months, then we would xray again.

He is on bute for 2 weeks, 1 gram a day. Bought the powder stuff to throw on his oats. The vet wants him on bute to calm down the contractions in his tendons. So he will be in still for another couple weeks.

He also suspects his knees haven't closed due to low testosterone before being gelded. He was gelded last February just before turning two. It makes some sense... he was never aggressive as a stud colt. He's stayed the same mellow after being gelded.

The vet who initially came out for his leg injury said his leg is looking awesome.

So I am bummed about it, but I knew that was pretty much what the outcome would be. I'm in no rush though- Walter is going to be with me for life, so I'd rather have him sound, rather than running him down and having him fall apart too soon.

It is also his 3rd birthday today... <3 No pics of him, but I have a pic of his leg from Friday. It looks awesome!!

Glad to hear there is no lameness and the only set back is an open knee. You are doing great with your patience and it will pay off big dividends once this is completed.

Can't wait to see updated photos of his whole self.

So I washed Walter's leg yesterday, took the nasty dirty scab off. There is a hole in his leg... Where it was the deepest cut. Should I be worried? It was filled with black/grey gunky tissue/something. I cleaned it best I could, and wrapped it with dermagel. I will see how it is tonight. Should I be using the proud flesh cream on it maybe? Should I have the vet look at it? Argh I don't know what it is/what to do.

Any insight??

sorry to doubel post, but has anyone seen this before? I don't want to stress if it's kinda normal... The BO didn't seem to be worried about it. I can't find anything online. Anyone??
