OK this is my latest. Go to the barn tonight and went to get Hunter form his paddock and lo and behold. EEEK he has ripped his ear from front to back where the ear meets the head. Oy vey. Vet came and stapled it up IMG_0332.jpg
Oh man, I thought mine had driven me to near insanity and worry! The worst I've ever had one injured looks like a mere scratch compared to some of these!!!!!
Dash attacked the fence to get to Rick quarintined across the field. Bubble wrap, and padded pastures... and a nice white padded room for me. She was lame for months at the trot, x-rays, visits, meds... didn't cost a million but ouch. All better now, cept for the extra 250 lbs she packed on.
Holey smokes, poor horsies! That magpie one has me curious....these are vicious birds that attack other animals?? Wild! Fortunately, never had no big cuts or anything that had to require stitches or casts (knock on wood, after all these years, I am crazy lucky), however my horse does have big scar on his forehead. Happened when to him when he was 3 days old, before I owned him, he got caught between a rail fence & his mom lunging at another mare in the next paddock. Tore open his shoulder (scar there from stitches) and tore a chunk out of his forehead, he still has a bare patch. I will post pics if anyone cares to see, if not, I won't.
