    Default *Trigger Warning* Any horse owners on at present?

    You know, I wonder if something could be made up? Like a satin liner? You smart cookie. That really has my mind ticking.

    A horse bib would be perfect! We use them on our race horses to stop the rug rubbing.
    Do you have a horse bib by any chance??
    I would even just get a muslin wrap and tie it around the neck so it covers the chest then put a light rug over the top...

    I'm pretty sure mum does, if not we can get one. The muslin wrap is a good idea too. We have some of those. Thank you!

    I've passed on all the messages and she said thank you very much everyone for taking the time to office advice and support.

    We really appreciate it.

    There was another idea I saw on a horse forum using a babys nappy and womens underwear with the bottom cut out of it, so the nappy worked like a dressing and the underwear held it on.

    Depending where the wound is, have you considered cross ties? Like how racehorses are tied at the races. It may be your best bet, just keep them short.. you would need to be careful though so the horse can lower its head now and then to drain its lungs.

    Hey SPG thanks for asking! I was just coming on to update.

    She is doing well considering. It's almost completely opened up again but the vet came out first thing this morning and they are treating it as an open wound as it won't stay stitched up.

    The wound very large. She's 14hh so it's maybe 70cm long. It's very deep as well. She was so close to amputating her own leg.

    Mums going to try the suggestions and hopefully she will start to leave it alone.

    I know it's hard to work out the exact type/area of injury with just my description. I do have a photo but its too graphic for here.
