Updated pics (somewhat graphic) Itís slowly getting better


Itís been a week and five days since my mare and I fell. I figured it was time for an update. Iím going to try to update somewhere between every week and a half to two weeks.

Anyway, sheís doing a lot better. The place above her eye is pretty much bald... Iím hoping the hair grows back. Her knee isnít swollen at all anymore, and her neck... the swelling in it went down completely a few days ago.

Her chest is healing really well, too... the swelling is down to a bare minimum and thereís only very little heat in it... However, itís trying to heal, but she keeps messing it up. Every time a scab forms over the wound, she rips it off. I know that itís probably itching, but if she keeps ripping the scabs that do form off, how will it ever heal? What can I do to keep her from ripping the scab off? I canít put her up in the barn, and I canít Ďbandageí the area... Sheís out loose in a 15 acre pasture with two other horses (my three year old Walker, Dakota and my cousinís thirty-five year old Mustang, Diablo).

Is there anything I can do?

Oh, and as for me... Iím still finding bruises... lol. Iím fine, though... where I got Ďroad rashí on my shoulder is almost completely healed (just got a few Ďcat scratchesí left...) but itís scarred over in very shiny, very apparent scars... hopefully theyíll fade. Itís odd that it scarred over, though, considering the cuts werenít bad at all... Lol. Oh well...

Looks great! This a link to my older guy's injury VERY GRAPHIC. It was similar to her chest wound but worse. Don't worry too much about the scabs. These types of wounds heal from the inside out. We didn't much of anything with George. If he got some junk in there I would spritz with a bit of water. You can see by looking at his pictures your girl is following the same healing stages.

Isn't it amazing the injuries that a horse can heal from?

Not graphic at all. I think she is healing very nicely!

Yeah, it's amazing.

Maybe i'm just worrying too much. The vet said that if it scabs over on the inside, then it would be ok... just don't let it scab over on the outside.

When it made the scab, it's on the inside... and then she rips it off and it gets all raw and red and bleeds a little...

Wish she was 100 percent fine right now... but she seems to be milking the attention and affection she's been getting for all its worth... Lol...

I would say as long as she isn't swelling much, you should be okay. When she does rip the scabs off, it could be due to just movement, but I'd just make sure they are staying relatively clean. Hose it off if you have to if it gets gunky, but otherwise it looks like normal healing process to me.
