That's filling in pretty well. If she isn't favoring the leg and has full range of motion, the chances of a full recovery are not bad with the proper care.

It has filled in very well. This is still a daily nursing care issue that will take ages to heal. There no doubt will be some "proud flesh" and she would possibly benefit from some skin grafting. It looks like the other leg was caught too.

You are a nicer person than I am because you are not in jail.

Carpe Diem!

Wow pipers mum, that looks way better than I expected so soon. Let's hope it continues, & your rescue buddy will take her very soon.

@SilverMaple

She is putting weight on it and is walking on it. It's still very painful for her, but she has full range of motion. She's getting the bandage changes she needs now and the vet will see her again on Monday, I just keep praying for her! We are hoping for a good outcome. Still, I would give her to the horse rescue, because they would still have to invest a great deal of time and effort before that wound is healed. I just want a good forever home for my baby now. Thank you!

@Celeste Hi, trust me, I have my rage about this. I just know that acting out on it would not help Piper. I've been through a lot, and I tend to swallow my feelings, hence loads of health issues. Right now I'm just focusing on helping Piper to have the best outcome she can have. Yes, I'm prepared for the proud-flesh and realize that we've got a long way to go. That is why I'm hoping the horse rescue will come through and take her. The owner is very experienced with wounds and would take great care of her. Thanks for your post! <3

@loosie Thank you, and yes, that last comment made me giggle too, it beats crying right? That latest photo did surprise me too. One day there is just bone and it seems to have filled in overnight. Bodies and cells are just amazing when they work like they should. I will certainly keep saying my prayers and keep my fingers crossed. I appreciate your post! <3
