As Donk said, it might have been a brain fart. But it's far from stupid. We go to "special places" when dealing with something like that.
I hope your baby heals up well. Happy to see the drain in place. And if we have to find the good, at least it's not fly season!
For what it's worth, I had a boarder horse impale herself pretty well on a T-post (knocked the cap right off it!) on her shoulder. Horse was a paint. As vet was putting in hundreds of stitches and a few drains, I commented on how she'd been sewn back together with the black patches not matching. D'OH! Why did I SAY that? It certainly didn't matter, but out it came anyway.
OMG! Your poor boy. I hope he heals rapidly with no problems.
Don't feel bad about the brain fart. We all do them. Heck, just yesterday I was over at a friends farm (she loaned me a companion horse for my horse 3 yrs ago and he's still at my place) and she mentioned she had put Puzzle's saddle up for sale. I kinda blanked out thinking there was no horse named Puzzle at her barn and suddenly realized HE was AT MY BARN!!!!
Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you!
The first time, Rory had sliced his lip open (theory is, he stepped on his own face), and while my vet was scrubbing it out, I was thinking it and thinking it, and finally couldn't NOT say it anymore: "Yanno, that totally looks like a vagina." My poor vet .
The next time, after gelding Odie, he was showing me a testicle and all the various parts, and there is one part (can't remember, vas deferens? spermaticord?) that is all coiled up in a little ball and looks like a tiny brain. I saw it, said "that looks like a little brain" and then gasped and pointed and said "I KNEW IT!!!" (a la Chandler from Friends). Vet said "uhhhh...well, no one has ever pointed that out before, but yeah, you're right..."
Vet remarked the next time he saw DH that he never knows what to expect when he's meeting me at the barn. I figured he was going to stop taking my calls...

poor neddy---- next time shove your door latch in
i have seen that type o thing happen on faces sides of neddies and also sorts
horse will be fine, nice scar----- should end up in a white line or grey under the fur just be aware of it if you clip, better of doing a trace clip r blanket if you do rather than a full clip so the blades dont ctach any bumps that might be left
