haven't been on; hope your pony is ok! I would have soaked with betadine and salt water, and packed with iodine/sugar. Hope tetanus vacc is current? I always give a booster ; just in case, And I always start on Pen g(I dose pretty high; 20 -to-30,000 u/kg)(of course check with your vet, most are happy to give phone advice) for puncture wounds in the hoof, as well as clean dry place to stand (thick bedding/shavings) and leave open, no pad or cover.
