Update on Big Cree
Doug hauled Big Cree out to the vet yesterday to have her look at the laceration from Saturday. His pastern was a little puffy so we didn't want to take any chances. Dr. Cobble looked at it and said "he was one lucky horse." She said a major artery runs right through the area he cut, and that just a little deeper and he'd have cut it. We live so rural that the outcome would have been very bad...But! She said the wound looks very, very good, so what we did was right. While he was there she sedated him and removed a skin tumor that we were wanting off so the poor guy has stitches behind his right front (elbow) and his right rear all wrapped up. It however has had NO NEGATIVE EFFECT on Big Cree's appetite. This horse loves to eat. He will be antibiotics for the week, and he can go back to work in 10 days (assuming the hoof pastern injury is fully closed). ~E.G.
