Earlier today, I suppose something spooked my mare and she went to flee and ran into the barbed wire. (Dad won't put up anything else.) I got her to walk up to the barn and put her in her stall, she was in obvious pain. She has multiple cuts through out her legs and chest area. Though one leg is swollen, having two cuts on it on either side. I had to wait for my dad to come and take a look at her, he said "No, she will be fine". So I can't get the vet out, but I have no plan of leaving it open like it is. I've looked up dressing a wound on the leg, you need a non-stick piece to put on the wound, then a cotton wrap to wrap and then the leg wrapping. Question is, she has a cut below her ankle joint, and one above... how can I dress that?
I know, please don't scold that she needs to go the vet, I haven't the money to pay for the vet and farm call. So I have to go with what my parents say, but I have money to get wound dressings..
