Good news -- the swelling in his leg has gone down SO MUCH -- there is about half as much swelling as there used to be, and this time the majority of it is localised to the wound. Yeah!!
I got some pics for ya'll today.
Too bad I didn't nab any of his leg yesterday for comparison in the swelling. Yesterday I hosed for about 20 minutes, put on some Furazone (I hadn't been out to pick up the Wonder Dust yet, and I figured it was better than nothing). I had every intention on going out later in the day and hosing again and this time putting on the WD, but it stormed sooo hard and the lightning never quit. All that rain must've done some good, though, because this morning I was greeted with a much improved horsey leg, hehehe.
There was some weird white stuff on his wound, but it came off when I hosed it down. And there might have been some raw flesh peeking through one corner of the wound -- whew, I might not have to scrub it after all!
Hehe, OK enough chatter, now for the pics. If you don't like seeing horsey cuts... don't look!
This pic is *attempting* to show the swelling -- I'm not sure how much you can see because the non-swollen leg is farther back. The swollen leg is the one on the right of this pic -- the swelling is mostly around his knee now. OMG, yesterday his leg was like a LOG with swelling, it's soooo much better.
And now for the actual cut...
Wide view... see that grey spot on his front leg? That's the wonder dust!
Thank ya'll soooo much for the advice, I'm so happy that it's getting better, and I'm positive the Wonder Dust will do the trick!
