This is Nina and Ali today. Notice the big band-aid on Nina's hind leg? That took two of us to do.
On Saturday Nina threw a temper tantrum in the round pen, threatened to run over me and generally acted like a jackass. Once she finally settled down enough to lunge she took off like a rocket and managed to stick her leg through the fence. Later when I cleaned it up I found a chunk of skin gone and a scrape leading up to it. That looked about right and I cleaned it up and left. The next day her leg was as big as a tree trunk, hot and sore. The swelling allowed me to see a narrow, shallow cut about 6 inches long above what I had found. And dirty and sore. So I slapped on a furazone wrap and within hours the swelling was gone. She has been sound on it but she is living in a wrap for a few days. It is healing fast, she was even ok with the farrier yesterday.
So her temper tantrum and me being in a hurry. We were bailed out by the wonders of drugs.
This mare is just not careful when she gets mad. I have to wonder how much trouble that has gotten her into in the past.
