Filly runs into arena wall

*Warning - contains graphic images of injury*

A few weeks ago, Equine Vet, Hattie Barnes was called out to a 3 month old filly that had unfortunately run into an arena wall.

As you can see from the photograph, the wound was very large but thankfully superficial. Hattie sutured the wounded and placed a drain to help remove fluid from the large dead space between skin and bone.
