Lets see them million dollar wounds!
We all know that horse love to hurt them selves. Heres Zoeys; a magpie pecked her.. :evil:
Ouch! Bad bird.
(The following photos are taken over a month's span)
Char's leg when we first found the wound (the day we also found out she was in foal AND in labor)
We started cleaning it and realized how much bigger it was
While cleaning we found a pocket of maggots!
She's developed some proud flesh, which we are now treating.
This is a yearling filly about 2 weeks after she injured her leg by rolling in a loose shed and getting her back leg caught between the gate and the slamming post.
There was about 1/2" between the post and the gate. Luckily she was only there for a couple of minutes max and remained still whilst I extricated her.
It did heal well but took over a year and did require skin grafts. She also had the splint bone removed. The white is her cannon bone.
Molly was attacked by the miniature the other day, so I'm dealing with a few minor scrapes and a wound on her leg. Of course, he waited an hour after the vet left from doing health exams to do it :?.
When I found it Tuesday:
I've been cold hosing it twice a day to keep the swelling down, rinsing it daily, and wrapping it with Fura-Zone.
This thread FREAKS me out but is so INTERESTING at the same time! Its so amazing how they heal so well!!!!! Thanks for sharing everyone!!! never heard of a Magpie bird.....weird!! LOL
it freaks me out too!
lilkitty09 my horse Blaze had the exact same hook injury your horse did! same spot same size every thing!
Yikes! All I have to show of a bad wound is Lucys full length of her forearm scar before I got her!!
Rhen- Really? It may just be an Aussie thing that we know them haha!
