Our horse Comanche severed his tendon and had a very large wound.
We used Vetericyn and cleaned it twice a day after the surgery.

Here is the link to his wound and healing.

Comanche's wound (graphic pics beware)

Sending good vibes your way and hope for a fast heal.

Thank you guys SOOOOO much for your positive thoughts, vibes, jingles, and prayers. :)

Reading through all of your posts have made me so much more hopeful for Robbie and all of your replies are appreciated more than you guys will ever know. :) I LOVE hearing all of the "happy ending" stories cause I'm so focused on the negatives haha.

Buttttt....I do have an update! I think Robbie's feeling the love because he is slowly getting better and it looks like this may have a positive outcome!!
He so far hasn't gotten an infection in the joint (YAY) and he is putting full weight on his hurt leg. :) He's also walking reallllly good considering the wound and the vet's couldn't be happier with the healing/progress he's making. The vet's have also told me how much they love having at the clinic and they all play with him and groom him. He's also causing some havoc with destroying his water buckets and trying to escape his stall...sounds like Robbie to me! Nice to hear my boy is making new friends haha.
So I do have some more pictures cause I know how much you all like visuals haha. ;)

Two days ago:

Yesterday when they cut away all of the dead skin and tissue:


So...let me out??

So I think the plan is that they are going to do surgery to re-attach the extensor tendon then stitch his leg up and cast it. :) He will have that cast for 4-6 weeks and then we go from there. Granted there is no infection - he will make an 80-100% recovery. :) :) :)

Yay Robbie!!!! So glad for the good report - you must be very relieved!! He looks perky and full of mischief. He's quite lucky to have you for a mom, and is such a handsome boy :)

Is he at Moore Equine?

I will be praying for Robbie to have a full recovery.

WHAT a blessing!! JUST read the post. I think if he continues to improve he'll fully recover. They have a phenominal ability to heal. My QH impaled himself on a wooden fence post--just MISSED his jugular--and he recovered fully. You couldn't even find the wound bc it completely closed up.
Prayers sent for FULL RECOVERY!! What a brave pony!! **hugs**
