T said he was coated in mud from the pond and it was barely visible. Mike said he had last worked with him on Wed. or Thur. This was now Sat. I don't get off work until after dark now with the short days so haven't been going out to see the horses at all. And they have been fat and happy in the same pasture for a year now.
He also had a slice in his right hind hoof and a slice in that same hock. It had to have been something EXTREMELY sharp??? C walked the pasture and didn't find anything. I told T. it had to have been the culvert in the pond. Since NEvel is ALWAYS in the pond! So she told C to go check on it today (Sunday) and put a tire over it or something. I meant to walk out there today, but didn't due to my emotional state
Today I undressed/washed/betadined and re-wrapped him up. The wound looked good, no pus, no swelling, no stinky mess, just some serous gooey drainage which is to be expected. No point in calling a vet now, There is no bleeding, no swelling and no heat.
He will live in a small paddock this week.
He puts full weight on it-even resting his hind leg
As always he is eating up a storm
Loves his powdered antibiotics too!
