My poor baby Polly got caught in a fence about a week ago. Unfortunatly I wast there, but ther yard owner found her in an awful mess!!! She said that she had never seen a horse so tangled. I didnt realise the extent of the damage untill I saw Polly the next day. She had patches rubbed free of hair that were the size of my hand! And also had various stratches on the top of her back.
I would be stretching the truth to call them scratches, wounds more like. Now they are peeling, and she is scratching all the time. I try to put things on her wounds, like dis-infectant, creams, bandages, but they are still awful!
What should I do? Im worried they will get infected if she continues the way she is!
Also, I saw her thismorning trying once again to get at grass outside he paddock. She is fed twice a day, generous preportions, but she is so greedy! How can I stop this happening again!? This time she was calm and didnt struggle, but next time if she pannicks, and struggles theres no doubt in my mnd that she will kill herself.
What can I do!? Thanks alot for any advice!
