Right! I NEED TO VENT!!!
I am Sooooooo p*ssed off!!!!!!
One of my horses decided to kick through a fence this afternoon at another horse & has basically de-gloved her back leg!!!! It happened right infront of my eyes & I could not believe it!
You spend thousands putting safe fencing in & the silly cow STILL manages to injure herself!!!!
So, I had to catch her, clean the wound....LIFT the flap of skin back up & bandage it in place! She had a good 5 inch by 3 inch flap of skin cut down to the bone....NOT GOOD!!!!!!
Whilst I was bandaging...she decided to half kick out, to get away from the bandage & she Kicked me in the face! Luckily she wasn't being nasty....and it was only pretty soft. But enough to knock me on my butt. She damn near broke my nose though! And I got congealed blood all over my face & glasses. Not fun!
She's had an anti-biotic needle, pain relief powder & is locked up now...Vet coming tomorrow.
I am sooooo cranky! Silly mare. Why can't she keep her feet to herself, instead od being Ms. Kicky-pants?
She'll be fine thankfully...but we have to be careful how much pain releif we give her, because she's pregnant.
