That wound is clearly starting to granulate, as you can see from the deep pink of the flesh, with the typical "buds" forming. The wound desperately needs to be wrapped to prevent the granulation exceeding the wound boundaries, and the best way would be to call a vet to assist you the first time so you can figure out a safe way to do it. It may be that she needs to be sedated to get it done, or you might be able to twitch her. Either way, it needs to be seen by a qualified veterinarian who can then decide on an appropriate course of action from this point. It definitely should have been seen from the start - looking at that wound, I wonder if it could have been stitched, which would have really benefited the treatment greatly.
It'll be OK hun. She doesn't have proud flesh. Thanks for your kindness and concern. I'll keep ya posted & will post more pics soon. :)

I really want to know what this salve is and where I get it or how to make it. I have a rescue horse that likes to hurt herself almost daily and has gone through fences of all sorts including barb wire.

If you don't want advice then don't post pics of a dirty wound with some gunk your using.A vet should of been called to treat that wound it dirty and gross. That other picture of a leg wound is also gross dirty with proud flesh. Whatever winds your clock but that horse needs a vet. Sale barn horse or not they still deserve vet care when injured!!!!!!

Excuse me? Did you tell me not to post photos on this forum? Am I breaking a rule? I'm sorry if I offended you and broke a forum rule. Are people not entitled to an opinion on here? You may not agree with what I post, but I will continue to post my opinion.

Based on your expertise, what is wrong the way the other leg wound turned out? The first injury photo that you say was "dirty and gross" was how she when we got her home from the sale. What problem do you have with her other photos? What do you see wrong with the final result? Of course, I know there's nothing wrong with her, as I see her all the time. I'm just curious what you have to say, since you have a problem with the care she received. Does she not look well cared for to you? I'm curious.

You know, Golden, I had a crazy idea back in July after catastrophic wound. My family has used this formula since the 60's with great success. We've offered it privately for years through word of mouth, so I thought it would be great to offer it to the public. I knew from past experience over many years it could save people lots of money, and possibly save a horse. Then when it became a headache I stopped selling it to the public.

We have gone back to only helping people we know, past customers, or friends of friends. It's not for sale to the public any longer.

Interesting, what was the issue?

I only ask because the Underwoods that I have used with great success started the same way I believe and has been selling for a number of years.

In a nutshell, people & friends we've dealt with are thrilled with the results. They don't repeatedly ask for the ingredients, or what would happen legally if someone's horse was allergic to the salve. When a stranger asked me about legalities, I caught a whiff that distinctly smelled like lawsuit. That's when I knew I didn't want to offer it to the general public. It's much more rewarding to deal with people who appreciate the help & way their horses turn out. That's the issue, and why we only offer the salve to people we know, or people we've helped in the past.

Thank you, Fly Gap.:) The sorrel mare was purchased in Lubbock, TX at a sale, and by the time we got her, which was 2-3 days after she kicked thru some kind of slat, that's what she looked like. It took several men and crowbar to free her leg.
