I know im probably completely over the top but a few days ago I was getting my yearling familiar with the long line (lunge) he was doing a nice steady paced walk around the yard when out of nowere he managed to step on the line he got him self tangled and went down thrashing around so I went over tried to free him (i know it was prob a stupid idea coz he could have kicked me but he was bent over the the near side but tangle on the off side) .. really hard to explain as it was completely trapped and I was scared he'd kill him self as he's somehow managed to get his face in the mud and couldnt see!! Anyway as soon as I got close I soothed him and he stopped thrashing around told him its ok and got him up he was down fora maximum of 90 seconds..anyway im really worried now he's seems fine after and eat his short feed and hay just seemed sad and craved a bit of comfort which I gave him willingly. To be on the safe side I asked him to trot up and down before I stabeld him for the night to check for lameless .. am I panicing for no reason i've had him since birth and he's my baby!!
A horrible horrible experience
