Re: Proud Flesh - Again!
I would recommend using Schreiber's Herbal Solution. I use it
on all of my horses, and I have never had proud flesh, or
scarring. My 2 year old gelding had a trailer head injury that
needed stitches, and the vet told me it would leave a scar, so I
trie this stuff and it really works well! I also have an 18
year old mare that had proud flesh and after using this stuff
for a week, it cleared up and now you can't even see where it
was...try this it works!

I just skimmed over the proud flesh posts because I have older geldings
who just don't get into trouble anymore, and new fencing - all nice
treated posts and three strands of nice, tight high tensile wire.
Of course, now that I need to read those posts, I've been too quick to
hit the Delete key, and the archives won't let me see September!
I called the horses in tonight, and heard a Cccrrreeeaaakkk, THWANG! One
horse came trotting in, then the other two. They headed into their
stalls and started eating their grain. Check them over - oops, blood
running down #1's leg. Deep inverted V-shaped cut on front left just
above the fetlock. Call vet at 11:30 pm. Of course he is sleeping.
Luckily for me (and him) he is only 3 miles away. Half an hour after the
incident leg is stitched up and bandaged. Stall rest for a few days to
try to keep stitches in place.
After all the talk about proud flesh, I am now in the position to start
keeping it minimal from scratch (no pun intended). Do stitched wounds
(where the stitches actually stay in) develop enough proud flesh that I
would need to worry about it? I will be changing the dressing (gauze pad
and vetwrap) twice a day. The wound is very clean. Should I put anything
on it, or just the gauze?
Anybody ever see how these V-shaped lacerations are caused by
high-tensile? I can't understand how it could have happened.

and Crockett (confined to box stall) and Bay (why do I have to stay in?)
