Large wound on the front of her left hock. Very swollen and was still bleeding when she came up for breakfast. There are a few smaller but equally frightening cuts down the front of the shank.
This is her leg after cold hosing for 30 minutes, scrubbing with surgical scrub, drying and putting antibiotic ointment on it.

Vet said everything is superficial and the joint is ok. She has a lot of swelling and heat. Gave us antibiotics and Bute. Suggested she stay turned out over being stalled which both her and I are more than OK with that. She HATES being stalled for any length of time. He even said I could ride her Saturday for the Ride-a-Thon. I made the decision to not take her. I don't want to stress her or that leg.
