    graphic pics

    Teej has been off his bute now for just over a week, and though for the first few days he slowed down a little, he didnt worry him like the first attempt we did, I think once his feet have grown through, he will be fine..
    thought I would put up a comparison pic to show how far his chest wounds have come..**a bit graphic sorry!!

    a few weeks after initial infection
    *mod note*
    Delrae ,have put the one photo as a link as it is fairly graphic.
    The attachment is at the bottom of the post.

    just before coming home

    and now

    his neck (the initial injection site)

    pmsl.. yep my hands are warm, they have just finished giving him a warm betadine wash, before being smeared in honey :D
    we will stop covering it as soon as the entire wound has skin covering it, so no more exposed flesh, with the rate that it is closing up now, hopefully by next month
