    Hi Luna, Red started scrambling after we had an accident where the float came off the tow ball & the horses were thrown around. I can understand why he became very nervous in the float as it was a pretty scary incident. After that I could still get him on the float but his legs were absolutely frozen in fear. With advice from QS I took out the centre divider and just starting asking for small sideways steps - this was with the car turned off and float not moving. Just rewarding the slightest try. We then eventually started again with the float moving but still with the centre divider out & then progressed to putting the divider back in. It has taken time but he's pretty good now. Good luck!

    Red String events

    Meredith do you have enough yards or do we need to bring tape & poles for fencing? I don't have an electric fence unit.

    Proud flesh

    Thanks Tracy for all that info, really interesting stuff. Thanks Meredith too - good to know you've used Copper. I've heard about that book of Pat Colby's from other threads, so I must look out for a copy.

    Proud flesh

    Thanks everyone, some good suggestions here. Tracy, it's a wet wound. Green clay sounds very promising but I can't actually find it anywhere to buy (Australia) any ideas? Luna, interestingly enough Proud Aid actually contains copper sulphate but they say that in the formulation they have made that it won't damage surrounding skin if you accidentally get it on good skin. Anyway I had a few people at Sandale recommend Proud-Aid so I'm giving that a try. Will post back with some photos if I get some good results. Otherwise a couple of other options here from this thread for me to try. Thanks again everyone.

    Proud flesh

    Thanks Jen. Yes you're right it's not infected anymore & most of it is healing well other than that section of proud flesh which sticks out about 1.5cm. It won't heal until that section of tissue gets back to the level of the surrounding skin. It was a vet that suggested copper sulphate. Just wanted to see if anyone else has used it

    Proud flesh

    G'day everyone, I need some advice around what to put on proud flesh. Red got his leg stuck in fence wire nearly 4 weeks ago. It subsequently got infected and he needed 9 days worth of Penicillin injections. He is well again now (still tender on the leg) but the wound has come to a standstill. The deepest part of the laceration is now sitting out quite proud (hypergranulation tissue). I have tried Yellow lotion, Manuka Honey and silver dressings. Silver is really good for humans with the same issue but it's not working for Red. Another vet suggested to me today to try Copper Sulphate. He said mix about a teaspoon of Copper sulphate with a teaspoon of Vaseline and apply. He said be careful as it can be damaging to the good skin. I have used this mix on a horses hoof with separation in the wall but I've never used it on a wound. Has anyone else? Or has anyone got any ideas? Cheers Sarah
