Alright, today Mom left me home so she could go help my aunt. On the way she stopped to feed Blu. I was here on HorseForum when the phone rang. It was Mom. Here's what she said, "Get your butt in the car. Blu is stuck in the fence!" She drove up right then and I ran over to the car. When we got to the pasture...Blu had only three legs to stand on! By that I mean:
Blu had apparently tried to get over the fence. There he got both front feet caught on the fence. He drug the fence down and it was caught on the back of his front left shoe. His right hoof was held up just a little too high on the fence wire...barbed wire.
The wire was cutting into his coronet. He was really stuck. I walked in next to him and I'll admit it now: I didn't trust him. I tried to pick up his foot. I couldn't alone. I released and he bit me. Right below my wrist. Maybe I can send a pic. Its not bad but it bruised. Though, the swelling has gone down.
Mom puched the wire down while I lifted Blu's leg. We got him free of the first hoof. Now for the left one that was caught. We helped him out of that at he stammered for a minute. He kept stepping back and forth on his front legs. And guess what he does next! He blows into my face, (with his sweet hay breath), and walks down the pasture to his feed bucket and eats.
We drove to the local feed store and bought wormer for him....he was over due anyways. We also stopped by my house to get some Scarlet Oil.
Had to put this: Blu is so smart. I was touching his mouth so I coulp prepare him for the Ivermectin tube. Then when I brought the tube to his mouth he moved, every time! I put some in his grain. Did he eat it? Nope. Lol. Finally I got it though.
Anyways, I dressed his wounds. His coronet was the worst part but not too bad actually. He was walking fine. I will post the pic Mom took soon!
You know what the worst part was?!?! Who knew how long my baby had been fighting and standing there!!!!!????
I LOVE MY BOO!
