Yup. Pretty much.

My bandaging skills were pretty sorry in the beginning. Now that sucker never falls down!

Although I would have rathered just staying being bad at bandaging .... which means he wouldn't have gotten hurt.

Oh, and I forgot to mention on the update, that now my 2-yr-old Shotgun has a massive lump on the side of his face. I'm sure he whacked himself on something. It was dark last night so I didn't take a picture, but hopefully the swelling will get better on its own because I don't want another vet bill.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Could he have been kicked by another horse? Nasty looking injury but glad he is getting better.

Said it earlier already, but that is what we initially thought happened, until we found a section of fence where the smooth wire (4 wires total) that was the second from the bottom, pulled off all the fence clips for a long stretch.

So this is a wire injury.

Wow, that's a nasty looking gash! Hope he feels better & heals quickly!

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

Well I let Red out of his stalled area for the first time last night.

#@$%^&*@#*%#$^%^%^$

was his reaction, as expected.

I wasn't smart enough to start recording from the beginning, and I missed some of it. And my hands kept getting cold (it was only about 8 degree air temp, with a below zero wind), so I just got a few clips of that idiot.

I put Shotgun (my 2 yr old) into the shed, so that he wouldn't encourage Red's crazy running around. You can see him poke his head out on the second video.




There's a pretty good buck on this one.



I came over to stand in the feeder, because that little $h!t was bucking and jumping right in between all those 3 things. Seriously? Go buck in the open where you won't get a leg caught!

He is CERTAINLY not lame! LOL

Just a matter of getting that dang wound to heal and close, which is just a slow slow process.

Can't wait to try my Wonder Salve when it gets here!

You can't really hear it on the video (the 3rd one), but he will "blow air" out of his nose like a dragon roar ... Is the best way I can describe it. He does it when he's all hyped up like this, or if he is scared of something (make himself sound stronger???). It's so funny when he does it.

Snorting dragon.....
