    Default Cut from spur

    One of my horses spooked at a biker today and threw me off, the spurs I was riding in cut into the side of him quite a bit higher than my leg would sit which makes me think when I got thrown back that's when it happened. It definitely cut through the skin and is about two inches long. Should I do anything besides clean it and keep putting wound ointment on?

    Is it deep?

    I would put aluminium spray on it, rather than wound ointment for now.

    It just barely cut through the flesh. About the thickness of a quarter.

    Then just put the alu spray on it once or twice a day. And just let time take care of rest. You can put some ointment on it in a couple of days, to soften it up. No need to panic (=
