Ok, first of all, this horse is *not* mine.
Long story short, a friend took some horses from an ex because they were all mistreated and looked awful.
All were boney, skinny, and had a sickness going on (lots of mucusy discharge) and so much more.
I come over to help care for the horses any chance I get.
Well the horses are doing much much better, although, one horse doesnt look too well.
She still has a discharge coming from the nose. It seems to be going away though.
What does worry me, is there is this awful looking circular wound under her head/cheek.
Its very pus looking and it seems to be leaking a yellow color discharge, scabby, and just plain awful looking.
But I can't figure out what could cause such a wound,
Its too big to look like a barbed wire injury.
I owned horses with my family before and know some basic common stuff, but we never had wound issues with ours, especially like this.
Her temperament is normal, eats normal, and seems all around fine except this.
I took a video today hoping to get some kind of help as to what it could be..
Please, if you have any insight or any clue as to what it may possibly be, let me know.
~~ I uploaded the video to my PhotoBucket, the password to see the vid is: horsewound aka 'horse wound' without the quote marks or spaces.
