Oh dear. Imjury. Not for the faint hearted

Look what my sillg girl did yesterday. But never fear its under control. Vet has been got anitseptic powder, anti-inflammatories and painkillers......she'll just be outta work for months. *sigh*
According to the vet it should heal up with no probs as long as it dosnt get infected. Delta though is being a nuisence, bossy and nippy and then sooks when I tell her off and shoo her away from nicking Dana's breakfast.

Horses. What can you do? And when I left to go yesterday Dana whinnies out to me and she NEVER does that and it was like 'awww baby!!'

A friend of mine used that on her hose, it fractured it's cannon bone when it stepped through ice and had the nastiest looking ripped up bloody mess. That stuff works really well......

Yeah it looks like good stuff I'll see if I can order some. Well I wasnt there when she did it because it happened at 11pm and from what I've been told she got into a barney around the feed trailer with Delta and either she jumped out of the road and into the trailer or Delta chased her into it. Either way she has the skin ripped off around the edges and deepish puncture wound.
