Kicked in face

Got a call today that my horse who is always getting picked on, and just takes it snapped today!! He has never ever attacked or bit or kicked anyone, and today he went off on a horse, and got kicked in the face!! Luckily no broken jaw, just had to have a tooth extracted.

Ouch! My mom's ex-boyfriend's polo horses were getting kind of rough in the pasture and Casino kicked Lola in the was dented in and they trailered her down to OSU for surgery. Lots of bones taken out, stall rest for 6 months! Those face injuries are rough

Double ouch... I bet he just finally got tired of being picked on and tried to put someone in their place. Glad it was not any broken facial bones.

Yeah he could only put a couple stitches in, because part of him gum game off with the broken piece... He wasn't too happy he couldn't close the hole up. Im just happy it wasn't worse.

Here's to hoping he has a speedy and uncomplicated recovery. Definitely glad it wasn't worse. I always get worried when I see a horse get kicked in the face, even if I'm not sure that contact was actually made, I rush in to make sure that everything is okay.

Thanks guys. Do you think he finally just snapped and fought back? They said the mare slipped and fell and he went and started biting her after she kicked him. My moms horse is usually turned out with him and protects him from this horse, but she had to get moved to a different pasture, and they said all of a sudden the horses started running around and by the time they went to see what was going on my horse was chasing the said horse and biting at her butt, than she kicked him in the face and than she slipped and he went after her... of course this is what everyone is saying. I mean he has been going out for like two years and he has NEVER layed an ear back at any horses. He eats by himself, and always runs the other way when he is confronted.

What a poor baby! You have a redneck horse now! Hope he heals well.

I'm so busy, I don't know if I've found a rope... or lost my horse...
