What a huge blessing regarding Reed's prognosis!

Well, he did it again.
All the stitches were ripped out resulting in ripped sheath and the swelling has come back.
Vet will be out first thing tomorrow morning...

It seems a pain but asd he is ripping his stitches have you concidered keeping him lightly sedated? a 1ml dose of sedalin would mildly sedate a 450kg horse but not enough to cause problems with eating or drinking?
We did it with Reeco when he was turned out after his pelvis injury. I kept him sedated for close on a week.

Perhaps something to think about.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I'll run it by my vet tomorrow, but the vet who did the surgery said to take the stitches out and leave him be.
He is, by far, the most troublesome horse I have ever had! I just wish I could wake up tomorrow and he would be healed.
Both vets are a little baffled as to WHY it's taken so long for him to heal. It should have been dealt with a long time ago. But his blood panels are coming back okay, he just can't seem to kick the swelling.

Not some sort of auto immune disorder is it? Just asking as I've got a cat in a similar situation - should have been healed up long ago but it ain't happening; blood work, temperature, etc., are all fine; she's on dexamethasone and atopica right now.
