GSP + barbed wire =

At least I suspect it was wire. Em has been very good (or very lucky) about barbed wire in her life and this is the first real gash she's gotten. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to have gotten into ligament or beneath the first couple of layers and is clean wound. Also, doesn't seem to be bothering her at all, even when I cleaned it.

My stepson owned a GSP and in time got his own stapler. It came in handy. For you living so far out, I would suspect it's something you should have

That looks nasty. Hopes it heals soon.

Poor Emma! May I recommend Corona Ointment? I've used it for everything from gashes on my dogs like Emma's, to a young hen who had half of the skin on the top of her head ripped off by a trio of over-eager (horny) young roosters. Corona was originally recommended to me by people who are involved in raising chickens for cock-fighting (yeah, don't ask... not a "sport" I support whatsoever!). It really works!
