The killer was that my BO/BM didn't notice for over 12 hours... he was brought into the stable (he was stalled at night at this point) and let back out in the morning and it went unnoticed. By the time the vet saw it, he said it had to have been about 16-18 hours old.
Do they lead in and out?

Yes, one horse at a time. He has since been moved.

Ah.

We lead when the horse is new to the barn but I much prefer to let them come in and go out on their own. I like to see them move to know they are 'normal'.

Even with that - I walk down the alley and peek at each one before lights out.

Fair enough... when I was working at various barns and brought horses in for the night, I would always give them a once-over with my eyes and/or hands. Denny was stalled and paddocked by himself (remember pictures of him when I first got him? He was still gaining weight.)
When I lead horses in/out I let them have their heads and listen and look for any short-striding, it's the best I could do given we couldn't let them in and out without being led.

It's shocking to me that it was left for almost 20 hours without being noticed.
Could a wound be cauderised (sp?) by hotwire? That would be the only other explanation... But the vet said the wound was about 18 hours old by the time he saw it.

I wish I could have been there (it happened on the 14th, was tended to on the 15th) but I was in the hospital at the time.

Wow Allie that looks great! Did you continue to use the honey on it?

Thank you Maureen!! Yes, I am using unpasteurized honey on it.. except when a little line of proudflesh develops, then I put some Furacin/Cortico Steroid mix on it for a couple days, and that eats the prodflesh back down, then it's back to the honey.
I've almost used a whole jar of it!! :P

I'm always amazed at the things honey can do. I eat lots of local honey during my normal allergy season. I think it really helps me. I've just started on a crushed fennel seed tea with a spoonful of local honey in it every night for digestion. Its delicious
