Late last year, the above mare was found in her paddock tangled in wire fencing. The mare’s owner managed to free her from the fencing and our vet Gemma was called to attend.
The mare had sustained multiple wounds, the worse of which were over the front and left hand side of the left hock joint. Both wounds were full skin thickness and very close to the extensor tendons. She was comfortable standing, very slightly lame in walk but 5/10 lame in trot on her left hindlimb.
