Oh no!  Keep us posted.  Sorry you have to do all this extra, but you're a good "momma" to these babies!

I'm home, we are going to survive.  9-10 stitches in two places and two weeks healing, she will hopefully be good as new.
Have pics to share.  My MIL took before pics with her phone at the clinic, and I took after pics at home.   
There is something to be said about a tiny horse, a small vet, average vet tech and a good size two-horse straight load with divider...  They all fit.   Vet worked in the trailer as she felt it was a good sized space to work and mare was in next stall to comfort baby; she put her supplies in the manager and they went to work.

Here on the pics, two before, two after.  She has green stitches.

She also has a smaller cut right below her nostril, vet put three stitches in that too.  I didn't think it looked that bad, but she felt it would heal better with a couple stitches.   Stitches come out in two weeks.

I will.  And, she is, which is one reason we did stitches.

Draggin' my wagon this morning, so haven't been out yet.   I'll be happy to see them still in her nose this morning.  Hopefully, she's staying out of trouble.  Put her and Bonny in the little paddock by themselves for the night, hope it didn't upset her and cause her to do something silly.

Doing fine this morning.
After a couple trips around the pen, I managed to catch her, put some ointment on her wounds and give her a short leading lesson; then turned loose to go out and graze with everyone.   Happy group this morning.  Can't find where she did it.   still need to look closer at possible wire, but no nails that I can find.

You know these little ones....they can find ways to get hurt that we can't even imagine!

So glad she's on the mend.

She has a loose stitch, one knot came undone; but the skin is still tight together, so I'll just keep an eye on it.
caught her, put ointment on her nose, short leading lesson and then out to pasture with everyone.

Sounds like, since you were so quick getting her attention, that the skin is sealing well.  That's great news!

Hope so, but that wiggly little nose might get her in more trouble, yet.  ;)

It ought to be interesting removing stitches in a couple weeks, but hopefully by then we'll have more halter training under our belt, and she'll be good.
