    A tree branch apparently only thing we can find in the paddock and we think Mr Bobtail frightened him into it as we found him near the offending tree**)

    That doesn't look too nice#( . These horses, I'd like to be a fence post sometime to see what they get up to. Looked after some horses whilst owner was a way and noticed one of the horses shoes was loose (initially just pulled a nail out that was sticking out but then ended up having to take whole shoe off). Noticed too that his rug was also torn on the rump so we think he's did something in the paddock (I was out all day at a show so don't have any idea what) and hurt himself as well (nothing serious and no open wound).

    If only they could talk;) .

    Ooch that looks a bit sore, but I know where your coming from had a run down to the vets saturday night myself and a very healthy or maybe it's unhealthy bill at the end of it ...

    I'm sure it'll heal fine, the before and afters can be quite amazing. Good luck with the healing process.

    If the wound was/could be stitched, it will heal very well and leave minimal scarring.

    At first glance I thought that was a cut on the front chest area and thought - what is she worrying about? It doesn't look all that big... Then I saw the tail and realised it was at the other end and the scale was just a bit bigger! Ouch!!

    Isn't it amazing the capacity horses have for doing themselves damage? My horses are in a cotton wool wrapped paddock, with no rubbish or barbed wire, plastic capped posts, horse sighter wire everywhere and they manage to injure themselves on a regular basis. I have a good friend down the road whose fences are sagging ringlock, pickets and old junk and crumbling buildings all over the paddock... and her horses don't have a mark on them!!! aAARGH!!!

    I sometimes wonder if horses learn to be more careful when there is more crap around???

    LOL, Caroline I would not change to barbed wire, not worth a try.

    Hi Caroline the vet said it was too late to stitch the wound but still believes it will heal well, so I am doing my best to keep it clean and the flies off and of course keep my fingers crossed hehehehe.

    Lol, i had a preg mare strip her hind leg, to the bone (it sadly never healed 100%).
    Plain wire, taunt, tight plain wire.

    Our boundary fence consists of cattle mesh & 2 strands of barb, yet the fence is that high, not even the biggest horse i had here, 16.3hh, could lean over it.
    Never had any injuries from barb wire, i dont mind it as a top strand for boundary fences.

    Ouchy Gamblin, he'd have a sore bum cheek!! :(
