Drugged pony pictures!

I was looking though my pictures and found pictures from Gunnar's teeth floating. I thought I'd share because I think it's hysterical. Anyone else have any silly sedated pony pictures??

Afterwards :) Silly boy

I haven't ever had to sedate a horse before... but I worked in a small animal clinic for years. Do they use Acepromazine in horses, just as they do in small animals? Or is there something that's more of a "go to" kind of drug for equine vets?
We still use Chlorpromazine in humans... which is the cousin to Ace. However, i'm not sure if that's something you could use in horses.

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Oh man I love this thread. People have got to have pics of teeth floating!!

I haven't gotten mine done yet, but I want to have the vet out soon to do it.

Kymbadina, I didn't start laughing until I scrolled down and saw his front legs spread out. Then I laughed. Silly horse!

Lol Gunnar is a REALLY mellow gelding. He often falls asleep and nothing spooks him. She gave him a tiny dose and it was epic, he nearly fell over before she had his head tied up. He was falling asleep and when sh rhad his head tied he just leaned into it and his feet spread out. I was worried how long he could stand lie that but thankfully he didn't fall.
I'm not sure what drugs they use I'll let you know tomorrow when I can look at the invoice.

our girl got her foot hung up in barbed wire.. = / and while we were doctoring it we had the vet come out 2-3 times to get off some Proud flesh, and he had to sedate her we literally had to have 2-3 people to keep her standing. Afterwards my mom had to hold her head up. And I get pictures of that.

Awe, poor thing. She's got such a sweet face. Gunnar couldnt hold his head up much either lol. He nearly fell the walk to his stall which was only 2 down from the one he's pictured it. Then he fell asleep with his nose in the corner feeder.
I felt bad for him but at the same time it was really funny to watch. But he didn't have an injury, just 9 years of not having his teeth floated :( I don't understand people who buy animals without being able to afford their bills.

These are some pics a few years ago of an Anglo-Arab mare named Belle. We had taken her to the vet to get some proud flesh removed from the back of one of her front hooves & the vet just knocked her out right there behind the building!
It was actually really funny to see how quickly the drug took effect. She was normally pretty "energetic" and as soon as he gave her the needle, her eyes went all sleepy & she sort of toppled over within 2 minutes . She looks dead in the pics, I know.
The last 1 is when she had started to wake up.
