My friend has a hole in her liver due to getting kicked by a horse.. Will she have to have surgery?

In brief: Trauma

To the liver is either self limited (not requiring surgery), or quite dramatic and life threatening requiring immediate intervention to stop the bleeding.
It all depends on what you mean by " a hole".
