    My horse had a very similar wound to that a couple of years ago. Almost exactly the same spot too.

    Good luck getting stitches to stay in. My horse chewed his stitches out three times. The last time I called the vet to have him stitch Prophet back up, the vet said to forget it. The wound ended up staying open and slowly healing from the inside out. It took all summer.

    On a good note though, there is barely a scar. There is a scar, but you either have to know it is there or look really closely to notice it.

    Wicked wound for sure not a foot deep but still a nasty one. One good thing is its an area that heals easy but will take some careful attention till it gets started good. To bad it happened but thats one of the things aboiut having livestock they get hiuurt sometimes.

    I don't see why she couldn't be trained for barrels as long as the muscle wasn't damaged. Have your friend talk to the vet about that. If the vet says there is no muscle damage, I'd say "Go For It!"

    Wow, that is quite a wound! Horses can heal from the most horrific looking wounds though and go on to live very normal lives! Good luck and prayers all turns out well!

    Only time will tell how much permenant damage there is. Thats an area that really can heal 100% with time but probably take a full year. A foot deep is really a long ways and even there you'd hit bone before you went a foot deep. Horses can recover remarkably well many times especially the young ones. Over the years I've seen some awful bad deals with customers horses and some of my own and been just amazed at how they turn out. The key many times is just how much effort a person is willing to put into the care of the wound.

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that! Frown

    I'd have your friend talk to the vet in more detail about the extent of the muscle damage and see what his/her recommendations are for future suitability for barrels. All hope may not be lost!

    I saw something similar to that a few years ago. There was farm equipment in the field with the horses and one of them got impaled on it.

    Not a pretty sight.

    I hope the filly recovers soon.

    My barrel horse did the EXACT same thing a few months ago (6 or 7) and It was UNDER his *Arm pit* Blush So we could not stitch it where it was. He spooked at something in the pasture and tried to jump the fence and came down on top of a T-post. So I put TONS of Corona on it for a week and a half and he was fine! I took him to a show (His 1st ever show for that matter) And he did great! I did not do any barrel/poles on him just beacause I did not want to push him too hard! But I did do a reining pattern, and a lot of wp classes!

    i think that is what happened to Cb before i got him he has a Huge scare in the exact same spot about an inch wide but 5 inches long, the hair never grew back. this all happened like 10 yrs ago, i got him last year from his previous owner, who got him from the owners that this happened with. you would think they would make a new type of fence where they cant do this to themselves.
