Time heals all wounds...

If you have been following this blog for a while. you'll remember a couple of months back, Fern fell into a fence. Where we found her, hanging upside down, tangled in wire. She had not a mark on her from the wire. But massive bruising on her chest, and a cut/ deep graze from a fence post.

This is what it looked like to begin with.
A picture taken a few days after, notice the haematoma/ bruising on underside of her chest, from where she was wedged against fence post

A few weeks later, looking nasty.But nice clean wound, no infection, healing beautifully.

Now. Only a tiny scar.

Sometimes natures is the best healer. This looked bad. but healed well, and needed very little care/interference from me. Although i did check it and spray with iodine twice a day. Fern is a tough cookie. It also goes to show that time and mother nature's natural selection process ensures that only animals that are tough and strong survive. I'm sure if one of my Thoroughbred did this the result may have been quite different.
