Thanks, Poppy! I got it from Sunset Halters. I love the bright colors and how soft the cord is. It's yearling size, tied as tight as possible, so he'll be growing into that thing for a while.
Thank you, OFH. It definitely won't be long term. It will probably go on for the next couple months. We're going to try and wean him off the dex in the next couple weeks. He's at a higher risk for gelding though, due to his head injury. The anesthetics may cause inflammation and may irritate his head injury and cause him to flip out. So a bit before his scheduled surgery, we're going to start the dex up again per vet request. He'll be worked on in the morning then kept at their facility for the rest of the day to make sure he recovers well. After that I will probably stop feeding it, though.
There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
