Comet was staying in today due to the rain and the slippery ground which irritated his bad stifle. He had been really bad the day before and was forced to keep him in because of the mud/slippery wet clay. After a night in the barn, he was feeling better. I always tell my family what is going on with the horses. Even the little things.
So I go out to give Comet his supper and he was GONE. Papa let him out in the pasture without consulting me first and he got hurt again because of the slippery ground. To top it all off, he was wearing his COOLER which he was all twisted up in. It was SOAKED and PLASTERED with mud. Was wearing his ROPE halter which he could have gotten a foot caught in. Legs were all swollen. Sopping wet and shivering with the wet dirty cooler. I am BEYOND pissed. I tell him time and time again that if one of the horses are in or in any other arrangement, then they are like that for a REASON and leave them ALONE. I get NO respect. He needs to leave the horses to me because he doesn't know what the hell he is doing. And this isn't the first time Comet has gotten hurt because of him. Last time he got tied up to a picket fence on the LUNGE LINE and he got all caught up and had a 3 inch GASH all the way around his leg. You would think he would have learned after that >.<
