    Thank you to all who replied with questions and concern.
    It's healing REALLY well and there shouldn't be much of a scar. I'm using unpasteurized honey to keep infection away and get it to heal. My BO can't believe how well it's doing!
    It was not stitched because of the location of the injury, they would have ripped out in no time.
    Denny is being stalled at night and kept in a very small pen when he's turned out, so the stocking up is not a big surprise. I am starting to walk him for 15 minutes whenever I go out to see him, both to air the wound and to get blood and fluids flowing in his back legs.

    I agree Of course it all depends on where on the lower leg

    My old horse slashed her digital vein (fetlock) and it was stitched. However without the continual bandaging for support, they would have torn/opened very easily, which is why many do not do so.

    Back on track now

    The wound look great, nice and healthy. You're doing a great job!

    Gosh that sure is a nasty wound.

    Such a good Momma you are though, Denny is such a lucky boy to have you.

    I have so much sympthy for you and Denny. It sucks doesn't it! Me and Tana are still months away from the day that I don't have to clean, and treat her wound.
