Stewie the Moose had a big day
 
Stewie is 16 and a half weeks old now, and today was his biggest day so far.

He came in from the big field with his mum and practiced his tying up nicely skills in the round pen.

I wonder if there is anything interesting the other side of the gate.

I'm bored now,what we gonna do next?

Well what happened next was the vet came to geld the yearlings, and then we checked out Stewie, and he was good to go, so he was gelded today. The vet couldn't believe what a huge boy he was, we had quite a discussion about how much he weighed so we could get his anesthetic right. In the end I think we may have underestimated as he was trying to wake up before the job was done, but all was well in the end.

So here is poor Stewie a couple of hours later, back on turn out , still not 100% back to normal

Poor guy - good thing to get him done early!
My gawd, I know I sure seem like a preacher lately -sorry - but it freaks me right out when a horse is tied to a gate. There was an article posted recently about "the dead horse guy" that revived that fear!
He looks totally unimpressed in that last photo haha!

haha poor big cutie. He did have a big day. I so wish I could have him lol. :D

He isn't tied to the gate is he?

No he isn't tied to the gate, he is tied to that tractor tire inner tube, which is looped around the utility pole at one end of the gate. It's a great thing to tie to, has just enough give in it that they don't get in a dead fight with it.

I didn't think he was.
