I have been on nights (the joys of night shifts!) Saturday was my first day off but stupid me slept ALL day! So i didnt give sox has tea until 8pm armed with headtorch. X the pony next door was in with sox. Each time i got him out he came back under the fence. My battery was low. So i left when he finally stayed out. Came down sunday to find x pony bsck in and sox with a lovely tiny bit deep cut right where his splint bone is :(
Cleaned very well,bandaged and gave the boy bute. Vet coming out today. Mention xrays...
Photos to rollos as they arent very nice!
With the colic a few weeks ago. I think sox decided he wanted to start a tab with the vets again :(

Vets been. Scanned his cut. The good news is that the bone seems completely fine. The bad new is that they does appear to be some fluids. Antibotics for 5 days. If no improvment then xray.

Aw, poor Sox, he seems to be forever needing medication. Glad it's nothing too bad though - sounds like it could have been a lot worse.
