Pack it with lime or flour and hold pressure to stop bleeding, if it's very bad you need to call your vet but the flour with pressure for 10 mins or so will stop the bleeding!

Oh, and depending on what she cut it on, she may need a tetnus sp? shot, or sutures, I would probably call the vet out for his opinion just to be safe...

Sorry your horse is hurt, hopfully this is some help! Keep me posted!

Wrap it tight. Pressure will stop the bleeding, but don't leave it on too long or you'll cut off circulation.

Can you get pictures? Is it the heel bulb? If so, it'll take a while to heal and during that time the horse will be lame, but in the end it should be just fine.

My colt just did the same thing. There are pictures of his injury in the hoof thread under http://forum.horsetopia.com/viewtopic.php?t=23633

It needs to be cleaned out well. All crap and crud and then washed with a novalson type wash. If there is a loose flap of hoof it needs to be trimmed off up to about 1/2" below the coronary band. If you trim it too closely the hoof may or may not grow back correctly. You will probably have to call the vet out to do this as most horses will not allow you to do this without being tranq'd. After it is cleaned out and trimmed back then it will need to be pressure wrapped for at least 3-5 days, maybe longer depending on what your vet says.

Pictures would help but regardless I would call your vet out. Future hoof growth and soundness could depend on it. Depending on how serious it is your horse may need a shoe on that hoof to help support it while it grows out.

It looks as if she'll be fine. The vet said she almost hit a major vein though and thats why she bled so much(she hit a branch off the major vein) a few millimeters one way or other we would have had a problem . She has to have her hoof wrapped for 2 weeks,and she got 3 sutures. So im hoping it will all come out good in the end.
