    Thanks guys I wasnt coping very well the 2nd time he did. I had Amelino at the tail gate ready to go on and all I could see was legs coming under the rubber I was screaming need help believe me.

    I will do progressive photos his first change will be thursday. Vet is very confident that there will be minor scaring. There is one soft of flesh that how has the potiential to grow proud flesh so we will be watching that bit. It wont be huge amounts if it did.

    It has bled more due it being about 12hrs to late to just staple and stitch she had to cut dead stuff to get to new stuff. Scaple old crap out from under the flap and in his eye socket.

    Jez was Count Cipayo scratched sorry not Hosea. Also had to scratch our cup horse Why The Long Face the mornign we left. So we went from 5 starters to 4 to 3 lol wasnt a very good trip I can tell ya. RWWA have rung asking if we could go back on the weekend coming if the lock down is lifted. We only have 3 left to race and really dreading having to drive all that way again only to be canned again.

    And I thought I was the only person with a horse silly enough to do a good job of head injuries! haha. I must be just really unlucky to have had it happen twice...

    Lucky, though, to not have had that much blood and skin taken off in either of them! Thankgod, cause I don't do blood and gore!

    Hope he is back and racing soon, poor boy.

    Wound above the eye was done friday 24th the slice was on the sunday 26th. Seen to by the vet monday 27th. Photo during the clean up and removal of dead tissue.

    Check first page for intital photos

    Today 30th aug as soon as the bandaging came off.


    Showing great granulation up in the slice area filling in and not proud flesh yay. Area above the eye some tissue has died we thought it might.



    His eye is absolutly fine thank god still to keep up with his eye stuff though until his healed. After removing the dead tissue above his eye and filling it in with some nice gel stuff have totally forgotten its name now I want to remeber. A soft pinky pad was put on both and then he turned into a mummy again with bandaging.



    His back to his normal self running around the paddock kicking. Knocks it a little and then sooks as he would. Currently a big pin cushing for penicillian twice a day. Will add the next update to this topic.

    do you actully know what he did the first injury on? above his eye?

    The one on his eye was just him getting his head wedge to the left on the partition so right side of face wedge turned to the left right eye/cheek against the partition mesh. I have these ties called Bunji Ties thinking good invention dont need long lead ropes in the float. Well there a tad bit to long. So he could turn his head to far. Got it stuck when he tried to eat Amos next to him on the left. So his ripped it up and the force has just tore hair off and one small weld bump and I mean small like my small finger nail half of that on the mesh put the hole on his eye lid. But that leads to the socket and the sunked bit you see in a normal non brusied horsey. Its just got infected/died due to not getting the right treatment on time which at the time we couldnt do anything but clean it and give him bute.

    What a great job you have done Shiobhan. I want to wish you all the best with your horses this weekend if you go back to Onslow, because you two really deserve a change of luck this time around.
