I figured that I would share for someone who may need hope with a wound of this type.
This happened July 13, 2010. This was posted on another board I visit.
Today I had him turned out in the arena and all the barrels were laying down. He came flat out running down the arena, went around one barrel then tried to jump another length wise. He got 3/4 of the way over the barrel landed and flipped the barrel up some how with his back leg and caught it on his other. I thought he was fine until he started limping a bit and I saw blood! I freaked out started cussing and mad at myself for not picking up the barrels sooner. I thought he would be okay so I did a betadine scrub and peroxide and cold hosed it. I noticed I could see his cannon bone and ligaments.
I called the vet and he came out a few hours later. He said Slinky was lucky the way he hit it and that he didn't cut his tendon. He just "degloved" the two tendons that are attached to each other. So he's on 4 - 5 week rest with me changing the bandages once a day for 5 days then 3 times a week after that. So far his first day of antibiotics went well. :grin:
