Update on Denny - warning, not-so-nice photos.

Day 1:


Day 5:


Day 7 (October 13):

This is after I had unbandaged and took him outside to walk around - notice he's stocked up in the hind legs? This is about 5 mins into the walk.



It's healing really really well. It's just starting to get granular tissue, so I'll be starting the whole Wonder Dust regimen soon.

Sure did tear himself up!

It does look a bit better though - keep on doing what you're doing!

Wow, that is nuts.

I do have a question though, did he not get stitches?

Im new to horses so I don't know anything about wound care. Is it normal for it to be bleeding after 7 days? Just seems like it should be clotted up in that amount of time...seems like a long time to bleed. Hope your horse gets better soon...gl to ya

Wow, it looks better. Is he stalled right now? If so, I'd bet that's why he's stocked up in the back. Looks like there's healthy tissue in there.

Sandy, it will keep bleeding for quite a long time with proper care. It shows that the tissue is healthy so bleeding is usually a good sign.

Poor baby! Cuts on the lower legs take so long to heal. Every time they walk, it opens it back up! I would really recommend some Eclipse wash and ointment. It helped my gelding heal bulb cut (which was VERY deep) heal much faster than expected.
Eclipse Equine Wound Care

Jubilee: You can't stitch a horse's lower leg. The skin is too taut and it moves to much when the horse moves. The stitches would rip out within a few hours, making the wound even worse.

Sandy: Yes, it's normal. Every time he moves more than a couple of steps he aggravates the wound, which causes it to bleed.

A horse at my barn got a huge gash on his lower leg, around the same area and the vet came out right away and stitched it up. Then he wrapped it so the stitches wouldn't fall out ...?

I hate leg injuries, just hate them
They always look so bad. Denny is looking better and you are keeping it nice and clean. Poor Denny....Poor JDI

So, I take that back. You don't normally stitch up lower leg wounds.
