Horses Injured in Another
that were Brought to Us for
horses were injured in another facility and then brought to us for
Day 1 -- We aren't quite sure what happened to
his neck, but we're sure it had something to do with a T-post. He
came to us with a huge laceration on his neck.

Day 7 -- Looking Much Better!
Several months later, he
still looks great. We can't even tell where the injured area was.
He injured his eye somehow. After
washing it, a layer of sutures and some staples made him good as new!
This horse had gone through a chain link gate
and sliced his shoulder open on the gate latch. Several layers of
sutures and LOTS of antibiotics and he healed up GREAT! The owner says he
can't even see a mark where the wound was!
She had injured her left rear hoof somehow.
The first thing we had to do was get the wound clean and try to cut away
the broken hoof so it would not snag on anything. The next step was
to soak it and make sure that all the dirt and manure was out of the
wound. When I started digging around I realized that it went all the
way under the frog and included the entire left side of her hoof. I
was worried that it would involve the bone so we started major antibiotics
immediately. Later we soaked gauze with Iodine and created a wedge
to help support some of the weight on that hoof. She is doing well
and we will keep adding to this as things progress.
It took about 7 months but she did grow a
completely new hoof. She is sound on it and there is no
evidence of an injury! That was WORK!
We saw him at the sale barn and his hoof was
nearly cut off! The kids insisted that we get
him and try to help him out --- so we did. After a few weeks of
wound care, antibiotics, and some hoof care he is bouncing around the
pasture like nothing ever happened!
