    Blue Eyed Pony, Wow that's terrible the poor thing! Yeah the vet did say that there is a high risk of infection but he's a long way off that stage. Apparently his cut is only 1.5-2 inches wide. Glad to hear your friends mare is better and thank you for letting me know her story :)

    I have had two of them and both got 100% better without surgery and went back to full work. Tell me where yours is severed and I will tell you how we stabilized leg so it would heal.
    Its the weirdest thing about him is that he's not walking any differently to before. He's not even lame on it. Its right across the front of his hock and apparently its only 1.5-2 inches long. I havent seen it for myself because I wasnt there when the vet came initially.

    This is the thread I started about his injury...Just how deceptive can a wound be... *graphic*
    I'm so sorry to hear about your boy! That's so sad. We had to get the vet back out to my horse last night because of colic.
