That's why I show the side shot to show just how deep it actually was. For example, the puncture wound smack dab in the center of her chest, I could stick my finger all the way in there before touching any flesh. It really really sucked cleaning all that out, but I do owe A LOT to a lady that helped take care of her while I was in school.
And to my mare. For being in her really bad, stubborn 2 year old stage, she was a trooper through it all, even when we had to cut down on pain killers so she wouldn't push her leg and it turns out she is allergic to penicillin.
And I did cry when I found out, for about 2 seconds. I still remember that call, I was laying in bed sick (strep throat/sinus infection) and the guy called to let me know he just picked her up and she may have to be put down. I told him he can't do anything until I see the extent of the damage. I didn't know what he considered put-down-worthy. I curled up in a ball, let out a good frustrating yell and a few tears to get it out of my system and jumped in my truck.
