I would think those long tails on there would tickle or possible pull on the stitches and make your horse want to scratch his face on something, which obviously, you DON'T want him to do.
    He really did do a number on himself...
    The vet left the tails of the stitches, I asked about them when she was doing it but she said that it wouldn't hurt him to leave them there and it would help us keep track when it came time for us to take them out. She said she normally wouldn't leave them, but in this situation it was better to leave them than to trim them.

    I'm glad you got him fixed up & I'll bet he's glad you didn't use Listerine.
