Oh no!
This morning I had a doctor's apt. for some tests and my fiance had to work. So my sister being the angel that she is came over to feed the horses and cows for us. My heart almost stopped when her son came running in the front door hollering, "Hey we need one of you down here quick Little Man is hurt". Little Man is a one and a half year old gelding that is very dear to my heart. He is the first horse I ever halter broke, taught to load in a trailer and is the subject of all my firsts with horses. Imagine my horror when I went down to the corral to find his back left leg horribly cut right over the joint. I have no idea what he cut it on but you could see his tendons it was that bad. My sister who is truly a saint promptly loaded him up and took him to the vet. The vet cleaned the wound, cut the muscle and skin off that was hanging, loaded him up on antibiotics, medicine for swelling and bandaged him up. He came home with a ton of meds and instructions for wound care. He has to be penned up while this is healing. I am afraid while he is penned up he is going to get too hot. We are in East Texas & it is August afterall. Does anyone have any idea how to keep a wounded horse cool???
