    I wonder if you could put a flymask on with some padding strategically sewn on to keep it away from his eye?

    The vet said that some horses try and rub the fly mask off, but he did say they have some with bug eyes, where it keeps it away from the eye. When I went to see him tonight, his eye looked a lot better!
    It's not as swollen, just a bit, and he didn't rub it at all. YAY!
    He seems to be in good spirits too.

    Could it have been a stick injury?

    Yay! I'm glad to hear he is doing well :)

    Oh no! :( Poor guy...I'm glad the vet took care of it, & I hope it heals in no time! I hope he doesn't cut himself again. Glad he's doing better!

    Poor guy!! So sorry to hear, looks like it will heal up without any issues though.

    If he's turned out with other horses, it could've been a kick. My guys play and once in a while get nailed in the nose, head, etc. Glad his eye is OK!

    I don't think it was a kick. He's top horse out there and if anyone does the kicking its him. And as of right now, they're too busy eating hay to waste energy kicking.

    There are no sticks there that I could see that he could have gotten caught on.

    He's doing a lot better, the swelling went down and with the help of molasses, he takes his meds.
