We have an old cattle bale feeder that when we got it we had to weld it together it was over 4 pieces.
My 7 month old filly loves to lay down and sunbathe, and most of the time its right by the bale feeder.
Today she walked up to me and I always rub her down and I noticed that she got cut on it. She hasn't had a tetanus shot yet either (I know, not good). The next time I get to the farm store I will get one.
She isn't used to the water hose at all or even a spray bottle, I don't know how she would react either. She isn't lame at all on it, but she is tender if you touch around it. We are moving her tomorrow into a full grass pasture which will be better than the half dirt pasture she is in now.
What would you do? Flies or other bugs aren't real bad right now.
