Although I have not had a wound where stitches were required, my gelding did get into a fight with another horse and he injured his LF canon . It took weeks for it to heal enough to go without a wrap, and now he scratches off the scab almost daily. It's very annoying
Did the wound reopen to its previous depth, or did the skin just split open? Since its on his neck and you can't exactly wrap it, I would use corona ointment, or something else with lanolin in it to promote skin growth and keep it from getting infected.
