Cool, we have almost no bugs right now, although those little black flies are pretty annoying in the evening. But I do spray his tail with fly spray so they don't go near his wound. Today it's looking even better! The "hole" is now all even, no deeper bits anymore. (that's why it probably looked like a puncture wound, but it wasn't ) And Luca seems very enthusiastic about exercising, I bet he's happy to finally get moving again, he's a very active horse!
