    1. mostly splashed blood, but a small scrape too. I also think he went down when he was clipped, since he was covered in sweaty dirt.

  5. The curse of the left hind kick. Fingers crossed for a speedy and solid recovery!

    1. I think it's more likely a "clip" from another horse while they were tearing around the track at a dead run. Ashke was foamy with sweat when the BO realized he was hurt and brought him inside. The vet said that he was pretty positive the wound was made by another horse hoof, kind of the way you can get a flat tire when someone steps on the back of your shoe. Since that is what it looks like to me too, I'm going with that diagnosis. :)
