Saturday Night Discovery!

So were thinking Joe was playing with another horse, and as he reared, he must of come down and got stabbed with a star picket, it it was any deeper it would've been in his trachea and he would've had to been put down. I'm thinking about a 800-900 dollar bill, but mum said she would pay anything, but it was just so scary and a few tears tonight, but luckily he's going to be okay.

Well ahead of you, since it's just that one, Dad said that is willing to knock it all down, and replace it with some sturdy fences. (:

Oh my goodness, that looks pretty nasty! I hope he heals well, we replaced the sections of barbed wire on our pasture when we first moved here but don't have the funds to completely replace the post and wire fencing with wooden railing. Our neighbours have those posts but they only run cattle. Bad luck that he fell on it but good to hear that he should pull through.

Perfect time for some nice recovery photos. I always love seeing the progression of a wound healing.
