Abby injuries from jumping barbed wire fence 1988
This was the first horse we had when we first moved here back in 1987. Something spooked her and she jumped the fence in an area that had barbed wire on top of the fence. We had no clue the wire was there! No idea what made her jump! We called the vet immediately, he was able to sedate her enough to check the wounds. we were given medication and instructions on how to treat them. no stitches. this was of course LATE at night when it happened. So next day my daughter was out with wire cutters and removed ALL the barbed wire, she was 15 years old at the time. That is me in the photo tending to the injuries. Photo doesn't show all the cuts. There was a lot of blood on our garage floor! She healed just fine, was a wonderful horse.
