Ugh!

Look at what happened to my horse on Sunday!! We have no idea how he did it and we've scoured his turn! I took this pic on Monday and can you see the swelling? Looks like he's had a tight halter on!!

At least today the swelling was down and it wasn't sore! Hope the hair grows back!

Yeah we moved him to a different turn out until we find the 'stickers and thorns'.....grrr! Currently his hock sores are healing up nicely, he has a case of girth itch which is 'just there' and isn't sore and now he has his nose scrape! I feel like I spend more time doctoring than riding!!!

I thought it was a nail too....couldn't find one. I'm thinking there a tip of wire sticking out somewhere. I'm going to don my gloves tomorrow morning and run my hand under the rails to see if I can 'feel' what I can't see.......I tell ya, if a horse can do it - he will!!

Oh goodness, silly Henry!! I think I need to put him in a bubble with Berk. So send him on over here so I can take that pain in your rear off your hands

I've got to be honest though, I'd rather he beat up his head before he beat up his legs!!!!
