Freak accident, had to put one to sleep
So yesterday everything was normal. I went to work at a local dollar store after I fed everybody. About 4 my father in law came to the store and told me that one of my horses was down in his pasture unresponsive but still alive. So I called a vet and had them on standby until I could get the pasture where I board them. I get over there and he's just laying in the middle of the field. Nothing around him. No rocks, trees, fence or anything within 35 yards of him. He had a cut on his forehead and the skull around it was busted. He was just laying there sprawled out breathing heavy. He had no responses to any stimuli. I mean I touched his eyeball and he didnt even blink. It was obvious he wasn't going to get up. I had my father in law put him down. The only possible thing that could've happened was my other horse had to have kicked him in the head. It's just weird because they've been together for 8 years. It was not a bullet hole. And the neighbors saw them rough housing earlier. I just can't believe it. I'm in shock.
