You horse is healing really well with that Golden! I'll have to get some ordered.

I would also be very concerned about the horses running in and out of the stalls. In a herd situation there is always going to be bullying, and it is down right dangerous that the horses be put in a situation that they are trapped in a stall without the ability to get away from the other horses. I would think that this is a very serious accident waiting to happen.
Yeah, at first when we saw the barn, met the owners they seemed nice and like everything was well kept...they just didn't know that much about horses...just had the land for it and got some for their daughters kinda...So Kate (Stella's actual mom) has kept a close eye on her, and been trying to teach them proper care but it hasn't been going too well. Stella is bigger then their 3 horses but she just always lets them push her out of her stall because they want to stand in her stall because we actually bed it. When we first moved there, after the first inncident we started making them keep their horses in field and come in for feed and Stella got the dirt paddock with the barn...they got lazy and stopped doing that though. So hopefully they will start doing that again and listen to us (once she's allowed to go out of her stall, she likes to roll :() Orrrr we will move her to a bigger barn with more knowledgeable people that take precautions to keep this from happening!

Is there any way she can kept in her own stall?

I get paranoid enough about a horse getting cone red in a paddock let alone stalls, eep!

I'd be having a very good chat with the BO and explaining the dangers

I am just scratching my head at the idea of leaving a horse in a place I do not feel she is being kept safely - not to mention paying someone for the *privilege* of doing so.

Keep the other horses away. At least til it is stable enough to just heal and isn't oozy anymore.

I love using iodine and sugar. It has healed some nasty wounds. And havent even had scars. Even surprised a few vets when there were no scars!

UNDERWOODS! I agree. I am about to post some pictures of a VERY GRAPHIC injury Drifter received before I bought him. His owner used Underwoods from the get go, along with hosing the wound (hole??) out 2x daily and it is drastically improved. Hair is even starting to grow on the scar now :) So don't worry, she can/will recover!

Dang! How did he do that? I bet it was a t-post. I can't imagine anything else doing so much damage! That has to be one of the worst wounds I've EVER seen.

Oh my god, poor Drifter!!!!!!! That's great that its healing so well.

Yeah we are keeping her in her stall till its healed and having a very long talk with the BO and her kids. I'm hoping we start looking for new barns and move her :(
