Black jack is not "broke" but a huge sweetheart who wouldn't take much. He is 5 and is registered.i am helping find him a home for a client. I'm still not sure what to list him at. His owner is mor interested in getting a good home where he will be happy

today was not a good day. Cody got his leg stuck in his turn out corral panel when I went to feed this morning. He must have been trying to kick at the horse next to him and got it stuck. I took a few pictures. I had to stay with him and keep him calm so the BO could help me free him. He had to take a sawsall to the panel to get him free.


Here is the panel after. We put duct tape on the cut places to keep him from getting hurt worse.



I had the vet out to check him over and make sure it was not broke.
He gave him a shot of Bute and checked said he'll be sore but no bad cuts or tissue /tendon/or muscle damage just bruising.
He is resting in stall with hand walking so he don't get stiff.
Lets just say I was ready for a drink at about 9 am this morning. Thank god he was not hurt worse!

Well our hay is ready to be put up and we killed ourselves doing about 125 bales today! Bah ha ha. We will be getting more help in the morning to finish. There are only about 355 total so only 230 to go. I just cannot lift those things over my head. I am good for stacking on the truck and pushing them off. Or driving. Poor DH is the one that gets to throw them up to me on the truck and then stack in the barn. Gah! I feel so bad for him. He also has allergies and this really does him in! Good thing it only happens once a year. Then in the winter we move 20 bales from big barn to our hay room as we need it so its not too bad. Pics.....................

Melinda I was not cool at all I was shaking so bad but I knew I needed to stay calm for him. At the end right before we got him off the panel he was getting tired and slumping. I thought I was going to loose him. It had been raining the whole time. So I was soaked to the bone. He was soaked and I was so scared ;(

Well, you did what needed to be done. Be proud of yourself! I am very sorry that happened to your boy and so glad that it all came out well. Animals and kids, they sure find a way to take a couple years off our lives.

Gasp! CS!!! That is sooooo scary. I agree with NVR.....drink away. Wow!! I'm actually surprised he just hung there and didn't panic and fight it. Lucky for that.

Wild One, I agree with LT, if you are going to confront your instructor, make sure to use 'I' statements, it will get you further. Just curious...are these group lessons?

Stan, funny how I bet having a super ride on Bugs gave you a little help to post Stella for sale...I think it was the thing you needed to 'pull the trigger' before you literally pulled the trigger!

It's going to be a HOT one this week! Near ninety all week! that's July for ya!! I think we might finally have to out the AC in....ICK.

Have a good day everyone!. Get some riding in. Looks like the majority of the US and Canada are looking dry!! (Sorry Stan, haven't looked at your weather.)

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.
