My gelding had a very similar injury last summer. He and my mare are both stalled next to each other, and they both get excited when it's feeding time. Well my mare Belle, likes to make a lot of racket to let you know that she doesn't want to be forgotten, so she likes to kick her feeder.

Bingley decided he had had enough of her none sense and kicked back at her. Well when he kicked her, his foot went through the wire fence and got caught. He managed to free himself, but it resulted in him getting two nasty cuts to both sides of his pastern. I called the vet, luckily he didn't cut into any arteries or ligiments. Just required bandage changing every couple of days to keep it clean. Didn't cause any deformities in his hoof and he doesn't have any soundness issues.

Your boy's foot looks like its healing beautifully! Keep up the good work! I had a little trouble with proud flesh, so considering you don't have any is a great sign. The swelling will go down in time, just takes a while. Poor Cinny, it's no fun having to stay on stall rest! Get well soon!

The wound is still looking just MARVELOUS as you can see by the pictures below. The vet said that since the stitches are out Cinny can start easing back into work and whatever I want so long as we keep his foot clean. He suggested neoprene bell boots instead of all those thick bandages YAY, so I guess I need to go buy some as his Pro Choice Ballistic boots just don't fit (they fit around, but he has low heels so they are too long over his heel making him step on them). The little bloody spot in the first picture is a fly bite, they kept trying to get at that wound.

Today I slapped a good coat of "Corona" on his wound and put him on the lunge line for a 15 minute trot. But it turned out to be a Trot and roll, trot and buck, trot and crow hop. I can't blame the poor guy. The goal was to turn him out but I know that he would take off like a racehorse out of a starting gate and the last thing I need is for him to injure something else from lack of warming up a little.

Then I turned him out. He trotted around and snorted a bit more while flagging his tail and then he took off at a full gallop to the other end of his turnout. Turned, crow hopped, bucked like a bronc and then shot back to me to play some more. At this point I was wishing I had the video camera but I did have my phone.... so here ya guys go.. It froze in a couple spots but you do get a good look at Cinny playing. He rarely plays like this normally as he is pretty laid back.

The cut looks so much better now that it gets plenty of air. I think it might be shrinking a bit. We have begun going for rides and today did a normal workout. No lameness, swelling or heat with our rides although he's a little more ouchy than usual with that foot on gravel. I plan to just avoid gravel. I still don't really see any proud flesh coming up. My vet said to put something called "prouds off" on it but I can't find it in any local stores so I guess I"m going to have to order it.

All is well, and I am so so happy that my boy is doing so well and we haven't run into any complications. Next step is a hoof trim and consult with my farrier.
