Unfortunately, Marco managed to injure himself again last weekend.  We think he must have been foraging for food in the hedges and caught himself on some barbed wire.  This is the second time this summer that he has cut himself badly on barbed wire, and thank god they will soon be moving to the winter turnout fields where there is NO barbed wire at all.  I hate the stuff, and especially given how clueless he is with it, we've been relatively lucky so far (in that he's injured himself but not fatally), but it's just too much of a risk...

So, he now has very neat staples just below his eye, and staples in his leg, with a HUGE bandage!  He's on box rest again which he hates, bless him, but at the moment it all seems to be healing really well, and the vet is happy with it, so fingers crossed it continues so!  And please God, let this be the last injury for a while...

I've tried to put links to the pictures below - I don't know why I can't upload the photos directly - perhaps because I don't have a paid account? 

Poor Marco - a real franken-pony at the moment!
