Has anyone else's horse ever had stitches? Sandie's stitches are right behind her front leg (where the girth goes), and they've been in now for 14 days...coming out in a few days. But she's been on stall rest this entire time because of where they are located - the vet said that in 30% of cases, even with stall rest, the stitches rip. So far we've been lucky but I'm very paranoid that if I take them out tomorrow (vet said they could come out in 14 days), and I let her out finally to walk around, that the scar will rip open or something!
Has anyone else had to deal with this and did yours rip/how long did they stay in before you let your horse run around?
