We had crazy high winds yesterday (hurricane force). Trident was hit in the face by flying debris (who knows what) and has a pretty good gash on his beautiful blaze. It's mostly superficial but it's about 10 inches long. I don't have any idea about what hit him--maybe a trash can (s)? I also don't know how hard he was hit or by how many items. The whole back pasture is loaded with debris--100's of items--mostly trash cans; lawn furniture; and some wooden fence panels; none of which is ours.
He was hurt and freezing cold and a little bit shocky, I think. I had to move him and mom into a pasture with no shelter or wind break so we could fix the stall and clear some of the junk.
Once we got the stall repaired (which was a CHORE); we put him and mom back into the pasture and he went straight into it. He and Kinsey spent most of the night in there and he seems okay this morning.
I have the vet coming out this afternoon to check him out and to fix his eye if all is well.
Jingle for him if you will.
