my brother in law had a horse he put in a fence that was hot wired.. the dogs got after her when she was running one day and that scared her into the fence which shocked her...she got so scared and frustrated she ran straight through the metal gate...that took a long time for her to get over. dont really have a point but since yall was telling fence stories and all thats the only one i have...

Glad to hear your horse is healing up great!!!

I hate barbed wire fences. They are so dangerous to flight creatures. My riding club doesn't use many barbed wire(only one or two) and the rest are wooden. One of the barbed wire was knocked down the other day and so I had to guide Sonnett as far away as possible from it...the riding instructor then said it wasn't worth trying to dodge so we went to the arena...I've read some very sad stories about horses waht get caught on barbed fences....
I hope his leg heals quick and unpainful.

Ha, Sam's metabolism must be working good, because the scabs will probably come off within a week or two!
The top cut: I can see skin around the edges, and at least with scabs that I get on my arms and stuff, I would have pulled it off by now...:)
The bottom cut is waaay smaller, but just a tad behind the top one in healing terms because it was bigger.
I think there is some scar tissue on the top cut, seeing as the skin there is somewhat mounded...Niether me nor me mom (who is a vet tech.) were worried, though.

Thanks for your concern, guys!

Thank goodness no, that horse is not mine!
We have no barbed wire where mine are kept, just straight wire, although that's bad enough. One of the horses at the agistment stuck his leg through the fence (while rolling they think) and tore all the skin off the front of his left hind, from hock to fetlock. He's been confined for about 8 weeks now, and is looking much better now though.
