And my frend christine saw him and felt sorry for him and she brought him for me and she had no transport to bring him home.
So 3 days later we went and picked him up it took 3 hours and I worn him down running and it was raining hard I lost a leather shoe off of my foot and my trousers were thick with mud.
All the horses and ponys all had a green discharge comeing out of there noses.
I said I think you better call your vet he just shrugged his shoulders.
We got tricky in the horse box I rode with him in the back and he kicked me in the knee cap with a fore leg I said to him pleased to meet you.
It did hurt.
We got the black smith out and had the shoes removed and had his feet checked.
The vet was called about the discharge it was confermed as strangles.
