Pretty intense huh!?

I bet the horse felt a lot better afterwards...i thought the white stuff was the pus that was left on his fingers when poking the horse inside.

What exactly IS pus?
I know that sometimes abcesses don't actually cause much pain. They can grow and seperate the skin from the underlayers of skin and muscle and eventually that skin actually dies. But It doesn't always hurt.

My dad was an MD and I used to help him lance abcesses from time to time on humans and the pus was never that liquidy. More like cottage cheese.
YUM! Now there's a mental image.

Aw, poor girl. It didn't bother me so much, but I grew up in a ranch type setting and I have had to lance abscesses on horses, cattle, and dogs. The thing that gets me is the smell. Without the smell, all's well LOL. I bet she did feel a million times better after it was done though.

Though that was a pretty ginormous abscess.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
