You did a wonderful job. It's healing up really nicely. Good work :)

Thank you, all... after such a long fight to keep it clean and proudflesh-free, it's very encouraging to hear all your kind comments :D

kchfuller 04-02-2009 03:32 PM

do you know how he cut it?

JustDressageIt 04-02-2009 03:36 PM

Yep - he was in his pen that was plank fencing with hot wire running over the top to discourage horses from chewing the wood. Somehow the dork got his foot over the plank but under the wire, and got caught up.

The killer was that my BO/BM didn't notice for over 12 hours... he was brought into the stable (he was stalled at night at this point) and let back out in the morning and it went unnoticed. By the time the vet saw it, he said it had to have been about 16-18 hours old.
