This last picture was taken 4 weeks after he cut himself. You can see from the picture that the cut is almost entirely closed. On the first day, the vet said it would take 6-8 weeks at the very least to heal, so I am quite happy with his speedy rate of recovery. I will be riding in no time! I thought the whole summer was shot, but now it looks like I’ll be back in the saddle sooner than expected. I would really, really like to end the summer with a horse show on MY horse!
