On the 21st of October a five-year-old sorrel saddle mare was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic. This horse had a history of having kicked through a window during an attack of colic about 5 weeks previously. At this time the patient had suffered several small lacerations on the medial side of the right rear leg about 3 inches above the fetlock. The owner reported that there had been quite profuse bleeding from these lacerations; it had seemed to him that a rather large artery had been cut.
