I know the feeling tg!!! I am ready for this week to be over as it has not been a very good one! Yesterday the vet came out to the barn and did something (coggins, float teeth, check teeth, shots, sheath cleaned) to 12 different horses. I got there at 3:30 and he didn't leave till almost 8.
My boy got his teeth floated cause his canines were like ice picks. The vet gave him an average shot for sedation and it almost knocked him completely out, we had to help hold his head up. He reminded me of Faceman's avatar, butt stuck up in the air with his head on the ground. Good thing we have a vet stock at the barn! Anyways, I thought since he is sooo out of it, it would be a good time to clean his sheath as it has never been done because I don't know how and he doesn't like it, at all. So my friend said she would do it for me but the second she touched him, he struck out at her and missed! She did not even hesitate to go back and try again but he got her the 2nd time around. He did not make contact with his hoof but his leg got her in the ribs, I felt horrible and still do. My boy has never kicked out at anybody so I was shocked, not to mention how doped up he was and that he was that quick to tell her to stay away from his willie....My friend is very sore and relaxing at home today:(
