Truly awful is seeing that size splinter from a picket fence pinning a driver to their seat. Driver lived. I'd have never believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Wounds like this are not uncommon around here after hurricanes and tornadoes. The vet sees plenty from wooden fences or siding. There was a pic of hay run through a fence post from a tornado that was pretty amazing.

Dramatic injury, but easy to heal. And it's only money, right?

I am beginning to believe that horses wake up and say to themselves, "how can I kill myself today?".

Hope he heals quickly. Now, go enjoy a cold beverage of the adult variety!

Sounds like something a horse would do. Don't beat yourself up. They will ALWAYS find something.

But WOW on that pic!!! Thank god, it could of been SOOOO much worse!!! Glad he's ok!

I'm impressed. It almost looks fake, there doesn't seem (in that pic) to be any blood whatsoever. It reminds me of a caveman bone through nose type thing lol.

Thanks for sharing. I would love to see more pics, this is very interesting.

it looks fairly straightforward. Like it's mostly just under the skin or throught the top layer of muscle. I bet it heals quickly and without complication.
