Pretty sure horse did this on purpose. *Graphic pic*

My daughter is expecting her first child, that's the happy news! She has decided to downsize her herd, she has 3 horses, one just got back from the trainers' to make him more marketable (ranch horse training), she had 3 interested parties coming to look at him. He knew this and decided he would make himself unmarketable. A sharp tree branch helped him out. He had to spend the night at the horse hospital to wait for the swelling to do down before they could suture it.

Oh WOW! That's one of the worst gashes I have ever seen!

Strategically placed right where the saddle goes of course!

Congrats!

Omg..is it as deep as it looks? Ugly and very unmarketable.

They're good at that.

Well congrats on you daughter's impending baby!

That gash looks nasty. Naughty horse! Maybe he really wants to be a childs pony? He's just thinking, "if I can hang around long enough..."

Saw the same thing on a cold Feb morning here in Minn. Landlady's horse caught his side on a too long bolt on a recently repaired gate. looked like his side was slashed by a sword through hide and fat layers. A bit longer than shown in your photo, but same general area.

He healed up fine, but there was a scar and permanent indentation along the slash line.

Best wishes to you and your family and a speedy recovery for 'ol Dobbin.

Update

Leroy is back from the hospital, all stitched up and drains in place. Vet predicted a fast recovery with minimal scarring. Let's hope so!

have a friend and whenever she thinks of selling one of her horses, she has a veterinary emergency on her hands, now she's scared to even think about it.

Poor horsey, hope he's good as new soon!
