LOL! How long have you had her---for almost two months it was almost a daily thing to go out and bring Ice in and oh look, there's something else wrong with him! He would injure himself in his stall, on the fence, get injured by other horses, injure other horses....he even stabbed himself in the nostril with a stick.

He taught me more about first aid in our first three months of being together than I had learned previously in my five years of riding--and that was at a for-hire trail riding barn with 20+horses, most of whom were rescues carrying around novice riders and/or small children.

Luckily though, mouths usually heal pretty fast without much interference from people. Just watch it and make sure it doesn't get more swollen or start oozing puss or something like that....and maybe wet her hay so the stalks don't stab her?

she can be such a rat and so marey, but i love her so i guess ill cope


yeah, because i work at a riding school, i am down there everyday all day, so i just called her every few hours to check it

Ouch! Glad it didn't get the eyes!

Your not alone though, I don't even bother with all of Ben's cuts, bites, and scrapes. If he doesn't have a new one everytime I visit him it's suprising. Two months ago, he got a few weeks off because he was lame in BOTH front legs from two, totally unrelated issues, lol

My sisters horse is accident prone. He is ALWAYS getting hurt!!! I've actually watched him walk up to a barb wire fence and stick his foot through and pull back!!! I don't understand him at all. He's unridable more often than he's ridable!!
