Sammy's training is coming along nicely, he really likes learning new things.
I really thought about sitting on him last night. If I had a few more sips of beer and someone to hold his head, and my helmet which was way over at the barn. Maybe tonight. He stands nice and quiet while I fuss and bang stirrups and lean over him on both sides.
What a pretty day. Here is Sammy, who has no idea what's going to happen to him. Waiting for breakfast.
Chilling in his stall, wondering why he's not back outside.
Oh and here we go. Vet gave him some good drugs and he goes DOWN.
I did not take any pictures of his castration in progress. His testicles were HUGE.
Wolf teeth extraction. He also got his sheath cleaned while he was out.
And waiting to wake up.
Stall rest for the day, he can go back out tomorrow. He was not thrilled, though he has a great view of a pregnant mare in the next paddock and her foal. He's fascinated and stands there at the window staring.
I'm thinkin he's delighted to have lost a bit of weight haha! I would think he lost "two stone"
Haha, his delight lasted all of 2 days. By day 3 he was swelling slightly and sore in the back end. His incisions started to close up early so we're keeping an eye on it, and put him on antibiotics (under the vets advice. It was looking ..interesting.) The Vet also recommended forcing him to work beyond just a few walks a day, so now we're hand trotting/free lunging him a little bit to keep him moving more.
Fun fun fun! I'll be happy when he's all healed up. I'm sure he will be too.
He's not biting as much as normal and seems to be quieter, though I think its more because he feels ouchy and not for lack of testosterone just yet.
