Wounds to the body of the horse can be very large and may initially seem quite severe. Because of the natural tendencies of this prey animal to run from possible danger first and to be concerned about the consequences later, many body injuries result from collisions with trees, fences, wire or other environmental hazards. The horse often is moving quickly when this trauma occurs, and the wounds produced are sometimes superficial and extensive, and they also can be more limited in location but very deep. These deep wounds have the potential to penetrate the abdomen or the chest, and either scenario is a medical emergency.

These words should alert the practitioner to the real possibility of the foal having a septic arthritis or osteomyelitis. Because of the seriousness of the potential problem, all lame neonatal foals should be considered to have a septic joint, epiphysis or physis until proven otherwise.
