Today I had the stallion taken out of his pasture and placed in the round pen. We needed to remove some large tree limbs and branches from his pasture it is 3 acres and has about 1/2 acre of trees. The big storm came through and really damaged some trees.
About 2 this afternoon we were driving out with a load and I looked over at the round pen.
Star was caught by his hindlimbs on the panel.
His front and head were outside the pen and his hindlegs were still inside.
The panel was bent and they are 5 ft and a half tall and made of metal.
The top two bars were bent.
All I could think of was that he was impaled on the panel.
We got close and could see no blood.
His back legs were firmly on the ground and so were his front.
He was standing as calm as could be talking to the mares like nothing was wrong.
Evidently he mounted a mare through the fence and she walked out from under him.
This is kind of funny now but I was afraid he was hurt or would hurt himself if he started to struggle.
He was very calm. After we lowered he panel he just walked off and started flirting with a mare.
Doria the maid said that she saw him attempting to mount when she was doing the dishes about 9 am.
The mare that he might have bred was to be bred next year she is a TB and 16.1 he is 14.1.
The sand in the roundpen gave him enough height to accomplish the mission and keep his hind legs on the ground. Shalom
