    Reeco not a well pony!

    Horses have wonderful timing, Just as I cleared the last of my Vet bill for his last ailment, Reeco has a new one.

    Poor lad is not a happy bunny as he seems to have some sort of infection in his boy bits.

    I Rode him yesterday where he was subdued and not going forwards (extremely unlike him) as I was brushing him off afterwards I checked his back and pelvis (nothing wrong there thankfuly), then went to brush the inside of his hind legs and he threatend to kick me.
    Now this pony does not kick, normaly would not even cross his mind to even threaten to kick. After telling him off for the threat I went back and had a look and noticed that his sheath was massivly swollen, very hot and it was dripping what can only be described as black goo down his back legs. As I was feeling it for heat pony was lifting a leg and very very clearly did not want me touching it (normaly he is NOT a shy boy) but didnt dare threaten me!

    Called vet, she came out, sedated him, gave him a good clean and inspection and he appears to have some how cut himself and it is infected, How the hell he has managed to cut there I don't know! (its the actual boy part and not the sheath that is injured)! Antibiotics and cleaning every day have been prescribed and enough sedalin for me to administer so that I don't get my head kicked in whist attempting to clean it.

    I managed to clean it today with minimal fuss but he very deffinatly does not want me touching it, although he was brighter in himself than yesterday

    Poor splodgey pony is currently looking miserable in his stable and my bank acount will probably be miserable when the bill comes in!

    Are you also giving him strong antibiotics?

    If it does not clear right up and the Vet has to come back, I would ask her about a biopsy. Occasionally they can get a cancerous lesion there and it can look like a cit in the beginning. Here's hoping he is going to heal up fine and that it is just a cut.

    We can keep the danged things in a padded stall and they will STILL manage to injure themselves. I hope for a speedy recovery for your boy's "bits".
